Hi all,

As the title says, I hope this wont offend you purists. I'm building a MK 2, but on a definite budget. I bought the frame with the rest of the bike in boxes....mostly unusable. So, I've used a Ground Cruiser as a donor. Frame had been ( poorly) painted. It's certainly not meant to be a show bike but I've always wanted a MK 2 and I think this was the most cost effective way of going about it....I've tried to add some pics but can't seem too anyone tell me how?

Thanks for the comments. Knew bar was in wrong, didn't realise front mudguard was, oops... Thanks. Have done a bit more work on her. I'll put some more pics on as she goes. First time I've done a chopper, usually do racers.

Above is correct, the mudguard is on the right way round.

Again, thanks for the advice. I thought the guard was right as it didn't fit the other way. Almost done now, pedals chain and guard and back brake needed......pleased with her.
