    choppin' a chopper !

    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 !

    Looks like an interesting project. Keep us posted on how it's going.

    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 !
