    Found a guy on Craigslist with a cellar full of bikes and parts. The bike was $40. Went back another time for the mountain bike fork with brakes and straight handlebars $10. E-bay motor and kit. Then I found a 21 tooth sprocket on Amazon for like $6 to make pedaling easier but then needed a new chain so I found this snazzy red one. Works well and was fun to build however I think I'll give it to someone who will enjoy riding it as I don't.

    My bike #3 looked just about exactly like that one. It was a Cranbrook with the same paint job plus I added a shock absorbing front fork from a mountain bike.

    It was a good one.

    That bike is in my basement right now be recycled into MB #5.

    Thanks, it's pretty cool and I would have loved it when I was 13, but I'm 56. El Oh El!
