i've been given another bike !!

falcon `long beach`, lol, hard to tell the scale of it in this pic !
its quite big, high, big mofo tyres on it !
anyway..... my mate just brought it round, his neighbour was gonna take it to the dump !
jeez, some people !
the guy had bought it to cycle into work for fitness, but found it too hard going !

soooo...i think chop off behind steering tube, extend forks, loooong.....and re-weld !

of course !
i think i can cut a section out of top tube, heat annd bend lower tube till steer tube meets short end of top tube !
re-weld and brace, then extend the forks to maybe 6`, that would be nice !
its quite a high frame, so i have plenty of inches to spare as i lower it !
its a heavy mofo already !
ohh, and maybe, maybe cut behind seat post and stretch it out a little, easy enough to achieve as well !
