    What were your intentions when you purchased it?
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    umm....it was kind of one of those impulse buys. I like the curved tubes.....I may just swap the parts from my SS onto it and call it good for a while.

    That sounds like a good plan. Looks like it will be a fun bike to play around on.

    I think it looks good--certainly different than what you usually see out there! Didn't Merlin(?) or someone with a similar name used to make a bike that had a similarly styled frame, might have been something like newsboy or similar idea?
