Hi all. I have an Electrabike Rockabilly that I modified and ride all over town with, but I thought I would make myself a bike like I used to when I was younger (around about 1976).
I'm a large guy 6'4" and 280lbs, so I knew I couldn't make a bike out of an old 20" Schwinn like I did back then. I decided to scrounge around for a mtn bike at the dump or on the side of the road. I found two in a dumpster, one with no front wheel, one with no wheels. I found a 16" front wheel on the side of the road. I hacked the forks off of one frame and slid them onto the other bike. I had my pull back bars that I took off my Rockabilly
Here's my first mock up.
I bud at work is going to weld the forks together for me. I need to get some longer cables for the rear derailer and rear brake. I will probably go with a banana seat and make my own sissy bar. I haven't spent a cent on it yet. I'm hoping to spend no more than $20 when done. I'll keep you posted of my progress.
oh, I might as well post my rockabilly too.
