Well it takes some balls to do something different, not all the bikes can be restored to like when they came off the assembly line.

Hey Wil, I like that bike. We put one together back in 1970 out of misc. Cub parts that looked an awful lot like yours. It was an absolute blast to putt around on and everybody loved it. They used to call us sorry f*cks back then too .

Regards,
Geo.

Great little pub hopper. I'll admit that I have a great fascination with small displacement bikes.

Question. What size is the rear tire? I'll have to say though, I've never quite been a fan of the metal pan for a seat though.
