Re: Wanting to do something different
Best thing I can suggest for a poor builder like myself is to collect every single bike you can find for parts. Cheap bikes are everywhere and I get some of my best ideas staring at junk.
You need maybe $150-$175 to buy a small welder and a grinder which allows your inner Frankenstien to run amok.
Come over to The Dark Side....Muahahahahahaha!
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
