Looks great. How does it feel without front suspension? Does the rear have Suspension?

Can't wait to see video of that thing run.

I cant feel anything.... no bars or seat
I wish I had the pile of bicycle parts I had when I was a kid :)

I had like 2 huge pickup fulls of parts in the 5th grade from all my uncles & aunts
I used to build a bike a week back then :)

Im going to put a suspension fork on it which I picked up today
I was thinking about doing another fork like on my other bike but..... AH for $50 the manatu was easier
Ill build the brackets for a spring in the back & use a cheapie ebay suspension spring back there
it cant have too much travel in the back or the chain will be a total PIA to tension but maybe 2.5 inches in the back
here is the fork & & my other bike
take care
