It drives me crazy to see you redo so many 16" frames and I have had mine sitting here for over two years.  :(

i've had alot of these for years and i finally said wtf its time to do what i said i was going to. i had to my family and friends thought i was crazy for collecting all of these rusty bikes. my collection is looking better and better now that ive completed a few. :biggrin:

I promised myself that next year Im going to work on something formyself. I still cant decide between my 16" or my lil tiger. I just need to get all these other projects out of the way and I will get started on it. :)

Heavy lame ass solid rubber tires if you're actually gonna ride it :(

Sux for collectors like us that want to restore them cuz we gotta boil that shyt in water to take them off and put them back on the rim :(

Toyshopcustoms gave us the trick to doing that. Boil them in a big pot to soften the rubber then you should be able to remove them or put a set on
