Re: What bike did you build on...? CHIME IN
The basketcase I bought was a huffy cantilever. Got it off Craigslist from a college kid.
I think a steel frame is probably best for most.
I was just looking at a huffy newport... it's a 26" cruiser with front and rear rim brakes which I feel are very important. disk is better!
Why a cheap bike frame?
Well, after all, it is the cheapest engine out there!
