Re: My first build to sell. Sold.
Yes, I cut the last 1" and a 1/4 off the post and bolted it all together. I also cut the clamp off the frame, why is welded on anyway Huffy,, why?? Then cut the seat tube of the frame as short as possible. It's a strong way to space the seat back but far to labor intensive between cutting and drilling the U-channel steel. I probably put about $40 worth of labor into making a seat post I could have bought for $25 but that's the story of my life ha ha.
