Found this before while doing a bit of lateral thinking problem solving.

Maybe you seen it before, I thought it was really interesting.

If I ever master welding this looks fun. A bike stickered up "No Skool Just Cool" or "Reanimation Bikes" would be ace!

Custom bars stem, post... wheels :P all that would be good additions

One step further of course would be to form all the tubes and drop-outs yerself, hmm bit advanced at this stage lolz

yep its a long term plan to knock together a frame of my own . i dont think doing it in the lounge would go down too well though :(

im going to liberate the tubes from fallen bikes i get my hands on

im sick of "suspension corrected " it looks gash with rigid forks, i think its about time the top of the tyre got over the argument it had with the lower headset and got back together :lol:

id go more traditional and use cruiser or low bmx bars to give me the height , maybe bmx spacing at the rear

google firemans texas cruzer :wink:
