First post. Glad I found this great forum with such a wealth of knowledge.
I have experience with building electric beach cruisers . . . but now I am interested in something a little different.
I considered the Nirve Chopper but it is not available in my country for a decent price so I ordered Southern Cali Custom's 26" Chrome Limo Frame on ebay.
I am thinking to do something which I have not seen before. I will install a 24x3 on the back and a thinner 26 on the front - as on the Nirve. But I want to use a long chopper fork such that it actually lifts the frame up in the front - riding with cranks raised up a good four inches higher than normal. Almost every part will be chromed, except the seat which will be a Brooks Leather B73 with triple spring suspension. I may also paint the rims jet black. Disk brake in front.
I have not received the parts yet and will post pics when I start the build.
However, in the interim, has anybody every seen a STRETCHED out frame such as the one above with long chopper forks (at least 30 inches)? Do you have links to pics? I am anxious to visualize what I am about to do.
