    Ok, so now take three.
    So I had this Idea of a boardtrack racer with this ugly chopper frame.
    and heres what came out.

    it is the first one I've done and I'm trying to get onto the next one already.
    these things are fun.

    Hmmm . . . a boardtrack chopper. Looks sorta like a Paul Jr. ratbike.

    I like it. I like the use of the gate hinges. I like to use whatever will work. If you filled the screw holes not many would know what they were.

    You might want to take a link or two out of the chain. On the initial adjustment of the tensioner, put the roller all the way down so you'll have room to adjust as the chain stretches.

    Zug where did you get the saddle? I'm tossing around ideas for a layback retro saddle. I like the looks of that one.

    I just picked up two different styles of double hay rake teeth at Tractor Supply. The spacing between the springs is about right for a saddle. We'll see.

    That's....interesting to be sure. Your attention to detail, and clever use of off-the-shelf hardware to fab parts is really cool. Scary lack of brake power, but must be a fun ride. My only comment would be that IMHO it'll achieve that boardtrack look more if you drop the vintage headlight, flip those bars over, and lower that seat. Streamline to the T

    i think one of the best parts is that someone finally made use of that gap and put the tank where it belongs. i wonder what some big custom fenders would look like?
