Default Re: 20" build

Hi Jim, Welcome to I've done a lot of 24" builds, I've just always considered a 20" a little too small for an adult rider. The 24" Schwinn OCC and the Huffy Jesse James bikes make for some very cool builds, although they ride pretty stiff. Too much so for this old man.
But hey, If you can stuff an engine into a 20 incher and thats what you want, go for it. The one thing I've always said is, IT'S YOUR BIKE, BUILD IT YOUR WAY.
P.S. For a bike that small, I recommend using only a STEEL frame. The engine vibration would tear apart an aluminum bike.
