A Chopper Bike

The Geek figured since she fixed the blue bike for N3, and now the road bike for N1, N2 should have a turn. She feels N2 is a chopper kinda guy, so she is going to try one for him.

She was first going to try to combine these two bikes, but the fork on the red one did not have thread that went far enough down.

Which is ok since we weren't necessarily after the penny-farthing look.

So she tried the fork from a Peugeot frame she had kicking around.

With the threads ground down, she can tighten down the headset.

This is more of the look we are going for, but perhaps even a smaller front wheel?
