I don't think I'd trust that welded chain link frame !

Misplaced ingenuity or a warped mind?

Watched too many of those chopper progs I reckon, Indian Larry made a chain frame but I bet he didn't want to ride too far on it. Maybe someone will buy it for the useable parts, he'll have to drop the price though. Say £100.00.

I'm like my regular ride, old battered and bit leaky, but still going.

Those are good engines and the wheels and forks might be ok. The frame, well it's already been said.

Here's another bike worth less than the sum of its parts:

Thing is, someone's spent time and effort get it that shiny and the engineering is not bad, why?
