Well now I know what one of mine will look like. I have slowly taken all the parts of a O.C.C.

lol, i had already taken the axle out of the rear wheel to replace the one i had bent... but i quickly found out that that axle was weaker than the mountain bike one. (yup, bent it again)

i need to get a chromoly axle or something... getting tired of bending them.

found out that to make the OCC fork fit a bike made for a shorter forkstem.

take a screwdriver and hammer. then hammer down the flowernut thing so that it sits farther down.

use a sharpie to mark how much you need to take off the stem, then use a cutting tool (dremel, angle grinder, band saw, light saber, force, ect...) and cut it just a little under the mark. (pole sits a little under the top piece so that the black cap sits flush.


got it mounted perfectly, then took it for a ride. i love it!!!

Right on Skarrd...

I just passed three cruisers guarding an armored car, and the guard was hauling a bag of cash.. I just gave a 'peace' sign as they stared me down...If I only had a gun instead of a bag of chips, lol...

of course my engine was killed and I was pedaling, I didn't want to get shot, I may be crazy, but I ain't stupid,...heh heh
