Re: It doesn't look like much, but.....
As a matter of fact, Intrepid Wheelwoman, your faux-Rudge might well have inspired the idea.
At least, that's what I was thinking about when I looked at that frame and wondered if I could squeeze a china girl in there.
It might not have occurred to me otherwise.
I had been wondering what to do with that frame. While I don't particularly crave a step-through frame for myself I also knew that that frame had good geometry for me and I didn't want to just let it sit there forever doing nothing.
A faux-NSU sounds like a good use to put it to.
And now that I think about it, it's time to do something that's been on my to-do list; google NSU and learn a bit more about them. I've been vaguely aware of them as a British bike manufacturer for some time. But I know very little else.
Maybe I'll find out why Cream titled that one song "NSU". That is, if there's any connection at all.
Of course they had that other song titled "SWLABR". She Was Like A Bearded Rainbow. Great song, weird idea. Maybe NSU is another strange acronym.
