the first time i saw how much a derringer bike was i said to myself, i bet you can build one just like it for around 250 - 300 bucks

I like it!

Sure doesn't look "cheapo".

How did you support the rear of the seat? I can't quite make it out from the picture. Also, what did you do for handlebars?

The seat support is actually just another springer section from an old saddle bent and clamped with a kickstand support brace. the saddle itself is just an old brooks saddle off my old road bike. the derringer seat arrangement was the biggest design flaw of their bikes, it just looks bad. so i tried to make it more board tracker style. quite comfortable.
