If you want it to be more ridable, but ruin the sick paint job, make the steering angle steeper. closer to a read bike's.

Yeah - for sure....but then you lose the "stance"....and it's ALL about the "stance"..

BTW - I like the way you've done your chain on your tall bike. Very clever.

Like a piece of minimalist sculpture! I see you do have a front brake on there .

Do you ride this very far? I think the lack of different hand positions would bother me after a few miles.

Any bottled beer with a long neck is called a long neck. Long necks used to be only available at a bar. I used to go out especially to a particular bar that had Schlitz in long necks. (yes really. I was 18. What did I know? Plus it was 1982 and Sam Adams wasn't invented yet. so leave me alone about it.)

It's a phrase that has less meaning recently as most breweries have gone to the long neck bottles.

Oh, and that bike is great!! Nice Job!

Thanks for the comments on the Long Neck

Yes, it is a bit of a play on words with the large beer bottle (and quite fitting as I thought of the idea after several brews were consumed...)

I haven't ridden it very far (I only got it assembled yesterday!), but I spun a few laps around the block with it and it's quite comfy to ride. It's a bit weird at v slow speeds, but once you get moving it's stable (it's got the same neck angle as a stock MTB, just a longer wheelbase).

It does put your body weight further back over the seat, so a sprung saddle might be my next mod....

Some of these bikes are so Frankenstein. I love them.
This is my first cruiser and I'm just starting to mod it.
Added the skull for my tail light the other day.
