    Bahahaha, OMG - Road Racing Town bike? Genius. Does look interesting though.

    Alec, could you post a pic of your Mini Sprint? In the 80's I had a Puch chopper/muscle bike that looked very much like a Schwinn Krate. It's long gone, and I've never seen one since, but I'd love to......

    heres one of my Mini Sprints.
    Ive got 2 boys bikes and 2 girls ones.
    The others are frames.

    This one has 406 shimano 3 speed wheels and SR custom racer cranks.


    I was out on it on sunday.
    thinking of putting SA wheels on it...get more speed.

    The frame is just like what I had! Mine had a banana seat, ape hangers, and a 5 speed derailleur with a stick shift on the top tube. Brilliant!

    God know's how you'd source one of those top-tube shifters for 5 speed derailleur now anyway. I'm tempted to build something similar, on an MTB frame, banana seat with a custom made sissy bar (the ones you can buy are all for 20" wheels), the hugest ape hangers, and a stretched fork to allow a bit of a raised head tube (for more rake) and running a 20" front wheel. I love the Schwalbe Fat Frank white balloon tyres, but I think they don't come in 20". I'd lace an SA hub into the rear, and fit one of those top-tube quadrant shifters. I built a muscle bike on an MTB frame, but really it was just a bars and seat swap, and I cludged a stem shifter out of old parts. It got stolen within a week.

    Heres my other boys Puch frame. Its standard.



    They take a standard bottom bracket. Had cottered cranks on it. The headstock is slightly larger diameter than normal, but not upto oversized...er size.
    The seat pin is 22.2mm. Ive got a BMX seat pin in there.
    The original wheel size was 451mm 20 X 1 3/8". Chrome rims on single speed.
    Had weimmann alloy sidepulls..730 and 810. With the thin alloy brake levers
    A mattress saddle and chrome roadster bars.
    Had full mudguards too.

    I would sell the orange bike and the red frame.
    But would just be hassle, probably have to post it somewhere.
    Dont know how to do that
