My chopper

Basically, I decapitated a exersize bike for it's bmx style handlebars and then took it's seat which looks like it's from an old indian motorcycle and stuck em on my mountain bike mostly with ducttape and stuff and boy is it awesome!
i just gotta buy some cosmetic accessories, like platform petals and put new brake pads on it and prolly a new front derauler, new front cassete, new front brakes and then vroom! i'll have pics sunday

Can't wait to see the pics. I've been wanting to build a chopper since I was sixteen. Saw one at the LBS the other day, it wasn't for sale.

I just don't know how I'm going to manage the front end. I am not skilled in metal craft. I can barely cut a tube straight. But I'm willing to play. I am intersted in the tall bike phenom too.
