View PostWe used to make our own with scrounged balloon tires and the old handlebars. Then Scwinn ripped off our idea. mad.gif

 

 

You were the rich kids. We used to "Find" another Schwinn Stingray, hacksaw the forks off and shove them on the end of our forks. Drill holes through both, throw a bolt through and presto, you had a chopper.

Remember these?

Upside-down bikes?

 

The ones in my neighborhood had no bracing between the extended handlebar stem and seat post.

Those flat-sided Schwinn forks, the ones w/o the shock absorber, were super strong.

I must have welded a hundred pair of forks for my friends when we were kids. I hated choppers, but made $$ off of those who liked them.

 

 

Never saw that upside-down bike before, that's neat!
