same idea as the swingbike. I built one, it's a little odd but lots of fun to watch people try to ride it.

Waiting on a kickstand and some sort of box for the rack. 3 speed Sturmey Archer with back-pedal brake, hub brake at front. Seriously good fun.
Nice clean look love the brown parts and those red rims give that bike a bit off the hot-rod style

Because off the love for brown parts we build bike's like the following.
Dutch design MultiCycle frame ( New Old Stock ) in ivory and just that little bit more brown with the tire's from de Chopperdome over here in Holland.
With a nice heavy duty front carrier ( those are a hot item now here in holland )

Links to other sites should ultimately be viewable immediately although members' personal links may requiresome registration or other appropriate security measures. Off-topic site links should be denoted to allow an option allow the reader to skip over them.

Facebook is noit the best place to send members due to it's various security risks and other member's account which may not be humky-dory to all from time to time. A photohosting account, personal website or posting here is preferable to joining websites pell mell, willy nilly. A video site like You Tube that doesn't require membership to view is fine but remember that content should be acceptable to administrators and members (do recall 'rickrolling' and why a few members got banned at least temporarily).

Another reason is evident in some threads where the photo was deleted by the photohost and there is a sea of X's and error messages and then never edited by the poster(s). I wish the admins would contact them or clean those up as they are a disappointing eyesore,

I would like to see it but I don't prefer to go to Facebook. Can you add the pix as attachments? I believe that works.

Heres my 50's style hotrod. I love this style frame, all aluminum, I've added WTB Velociraptor tires, Oury grips and low bars. Very comfortable bike. Nothing to custom, but really enjoy riding it.
