I was given this frame a few years ago, no matter how many times I walked past it and thought it was time to "Chop", I never could because it has always intruiged me. When I recieved it, it had had a very good quality respray which left it unrecogniseable to my unprofessional eye. I have half heartedly tinkered with her a couple of time never to be satified, but I think I might have found a new life for her in the way of a "Klunker"( a klunker is the forefather of the present day mountain bike from the late 70's, a cross between a 26in bmx, a road pushbike and a motocross motorcycle, had a rear derailleur but everything else was heavy duty.
the first attempt was to make a kinda cargo bicycle
my second try was a sort of board track racer
my 3rd attempt is the Klunker, I seem to have all the parts lying around although some are rather rusted, when I get her together and see how she looks and decide then wether or not this will be her future

Its a cool idea and it has my stamp of approval.
So we get the leaders we deserve and we elect, we get the companies and the products that we ask for, right? And we have to ask for different things. – Paul Gilding
but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.
