    what happens when you cant sell a bike and boredom ensues

    a challenge. i bought the bike 3 months ago i had no complaints other than terrible brakes. it didnt stop me from enjoying the bike. but since im a lowrider at heart i decided to chop it and make it as low as i could get it. i named the bike the Led Zledppelin

    apehangers could still be a plan but im not counting on it


    had some structural issues with the conduit so i ran some supports

    this is where its at after 8 days im getting a springer fork and a different seat once the weather breaks im going to cut the brake bosses off to run the chain

    its true ride height

    what kickstand?

    Cool I love that this bike started as a really small BMX and now it's HUGE! That is going to be a monstrously long chain though!

    If I ever truly get bored I'm thinking of building a bike from Faugosa bread and Polish sausage.

    If I can't unload it at least it will clog my arteries GOOD...YUM

    Sick ride man
    Looks uncomfortable? But I guess as shown in that picture of someone(you?) riding it, it must be okay.

    The lowered bikes aren't something I'm really interested in, but I did want to drop in and say that it's incredible to see what you started with and what it ended up as. You obviously are creative, and that deserves credit. Nice work!

    That is really cool. Is it any harder to navigate? It is so long.
    Nice work!

    Hey, fun build.
    I like your ammo boxes and the colour.
    Nice simple, clean lines, neat work.
