    a buddy built a grasshopper bike (my term for those hump backed monstrostities)out of his twinkie and yeah, field of view is poor.
    btw, her name was/is christine, for good reason.

    Good to see this thread is still alive.

    some day I'm gonna get me another rigid chopper.... some day.

    That paint and frame molding have either held up very well, or he did an excellent job at recreating the original.
