    daisy duke...

    i put a smaller fork on her, beach cruisers, cool grips, horns, reflectors, bananna seat for a 26" bike, issy bar, 20" rims front and back, a smaller pedal assembly w/ shorter stems, shorter kickstand, new chain, suicide steer knob off one of my grammas old cadillacs, and alot of love! first the before pic, then the after. she sits so low i cant pedal in turns, but she's alot of fun, and she gets alot of looks!

    before....


    after....



    i call this one daisy duke, cuz i always wanted to lay her down and ride her!!!!

    fast eddie outty

    Nah, she's perfect as she is.

    Eddie, what's the suicide knob for--or is it just for fun?

    That's nice. Are you going to put a new headlight in the original "bullet" housing?

    i thought about making the light work, but then i thought it was time to move on to a new project!!! from what i understand its not-so-ordinary to still have the plastic lens in those old bikes.

    BJ wouldn't know an alt bike if it came up and bit him on the ass. Looks good in white to me.

    One thing you could do to improve pedal clearance is to put the orig. front fork and a 26" wheel back on and keep the 20 in back, it would still be way cool and would handle a lot better that way too.
