  14. We've got one in the shed! I LOVE it! They were known as LeRun, and the only ones out there that I've seen were prizes handed out by MTV decades ago... we call ours "Larry".

    I think it needs to have the double strut tubes extended down to the lower down tube.

    I’m open to suggestions. Explain your strut tube idea in more detail. Two gently curving tubes extending from the end of the two top tubes down to the main down tube? I thought that a reproduction Schwinn tank would look good also. And maybe even the extra long front fork struts, Vintage Schwinn fenders?

    Yes, in my mind the frame would look more complete, not to mention the increased torsional rigidity.

    Holy Crap, HA, We did the same thing in western Kansas. Yep, I loved being a 70s kid. We survived.

    Save yourself some grief and incorporate folding foot pegs.

    I think I have some old twisted chopper folding foot pegs in my scrap metal pile. Thanks for the idea. Gary

    Felt mc17.jpg Here's one I recently completed. Since it was a homebuilt it took me more paperwork at the DMV than when I got married AND bought my first house combined.

    In the 70s we were not that High Tech. We just winged it.
