Had a lazy day off work today, so decided to build me a ratbike single speeder for messing about on, quite pleased with my effort and also with the weight :mrgreen:

Can you guess what frame it is :?:

16" frame, looks ok from a distance but close up it is rough as hell, with a wire brushed bare frame and filler on display, I put it together as a knockabout bike so ive left it ratty for now, but if it rides as well as i remember then i'll strip it back down and have it powder-coated and maybe spend some cash on it.

I like it a lot. The kind of bike you would just jump on to nip to the shops, pub, whiz around the local track etc 8)

Regards

Super light, super stiff, climbs like a goat. I single speeded mine for a while and it was a hoot, great fun.
