    Just wanted to add this little thread introducing myself :p

    I'm Jake or Jacob, 15 yrs old 16 in feb.
    Live in Overland Park, Kansas and look forward to my first build! I'm going to be setting my sites on a schwinn occ chopper, lets hope that I have the knowledge to complete it. It would be of great help if anyone that has built a chopper could answer some of my questions in the general section :grin:

    So hi :D
