Magna Mini-Bike

My neighbor gave me this bike for free after I asked them if they happened to have a children's bike hanging around. Funny enough they did. After seeing various mini-bikes in my town and on critical mass type rides I knew I had to make this yet another project. The day I got it I went and bought the longest 28.6 seatpost I could find, slapped on my All-City Saddle, bigger pedals, and bought some clear ourys. The BMX bars and bullhorns came later. This bike is so much fun to ride and it makes people laugh and smile at you when you ride by, it's amazing. Sometimes fun bikes aren't the nicest bikes.

I can only imagine how much fun it would be if you could throw on some drop bars and be pedaling next to a car. Awesome build.

It's happened! It's also hilarious when passing a weekend warrior coming back from a training ride on the bike path.

The front wheel is so out of true. Might explode next time I ride. Gotta be prepared for the worst lmao.

My friend gave me these 3ttt scott time trial bar, so my first instinct was to ride them on this beast... http://imgur.com/AvHD69D
