BMX conversion

I see threads about converting a BMX so adults can ride them. Well, been there, done that. Love it, it's fun to ride, and works very well also easy to put in the back of the car. Here's the scoop. If you want pic's, & info I'll send them to ya. Just e-mail me. SEAT: I ordered a piece of 1" X 24" aluminum rod from a place in Tx. Had a friend of mine who had a lathe turn an 1 1/4 " of one end down to 7/8 " [for the seat], and took a tad off the rest so as to fit in the seat post hole. "O", I took off about 4 "s off the length, mybe 3" [to make it fit me]. The handlebars [the hard part, no not really] I done that with 2 sets of handlebar risers. You aint gona believe how cool it looks. Like putting the black rubber foam around all the components. Looks factory. Old people ask me, "Where did you buy that bike at, I want one, tell me where!!" billrobinson2@embarqmail.com
