    Here is my 55 Schwinn Tiger. The original 3 speed S/A hub has been laced to an alloy rim. New front wheel. It is great fun to ride.

    Helped my friend build this small tall today. It's such a fun bike cause it rides little but feels big.



    Here's a better look at how we did the fork. It works ok, but somethings not right. The fork "springs" back to the center.

    That's what I was thinking. They actually look off in the picture but in person they look dead on. I used a level to double check everything, and it seems right...

    Gaaah

    Head tubes don't align. I had them aligned, tacked it together, then brazed. Must have slipped. My unbrazing attempts have failed. I so liked the oval where the two forks came together, but I don't see any way to fix it now.

    Pictures make it LOOK big. I made it for the average 9 - 10 year old. There is a definite "learning curve" on riding these things. I've had grand kids and neighborhood kids use it. They like it, the only thing I changed is, turned the "stem" backwards and then have the bars straight instead of angled down. The banana seat is great for kids of different heights. Click on the link below for the build thread on RatRodBikes.com.............It was just a FUN build for me.

    Is there a name for this style: cruiser with low handle bars?

    I'm too tempted to pick up the $20 cruiser of CL and flip the bars, and cruise around the neighborhood.

    They're called "Boardtrackers".......A tribute to motorcycles that raced on Speedways made from wood, circa 1920's..............Check some out here http://ratrodbikes.com/

    haven't posted this here yet, but this is one of my other custom SpaceLiners,
    a 24" version that I turned into a muscle bike with a 3-Speed S/A coaster hub.
    This is an old photo, I had just finished putting it together, hadn't hooked up the shifter yet.:




    Future plans include wiring up LEDs in the light-hole. I have a lens for it too.

    Yes mine does the same. I intend to rebuild with linked steering like a car has when it warms up enough to work in the unheated garage. I saw pics of this style and thought it must work due to the fact that some were in use. Turns out it's not true.

    I was talking to my brilliant brother about my sofabike idea, and he gave me a lecture on Ackerman steering. Maybe that's what's needed here?

    Both of those bikes look really good, but I'm lusting over that chopper.
