So I've published this on instructables
wood Conversion Instructions







It's technically not done, needs some furnishing like a seat bottom and better handlebars... But it's ridable and very much fun

I went with the original wheel because the steering geometry wasn't very nice with the smaller wheel (too much effort as I needed to correct more often). I would have to bend the forks to restore the original trail I enjoyed before

My father just recently got a Miller 135 MIG welder - yesterday, for free in fact And it's in working order... I know mig welding isn't ideal for bike frames, but perhaps this winter break I'll see about welding an awesome frame
