Thanks . I've got everything to build it up , just have to decide how I'm going to go about it . Cruiser / flat / Bmx bars also 2 or 3 diff forks , 1 piece or 3 piece cranks a couple different pedals and wheel sets , brakes or coaster ? You see , time is what I really need . The bike will choose its parts once I start building it , they always do . Thanks again , I'll keep you all posted soon enough .

How is that a Takara? I saw your thread on RRB, where you came to the same conclusion, and well... I guess it ain't impossible, but? A Takara? Really? From what year?
