"Dark Horse 2" - New Wheels! Muscle bike

Early muscle bikes were kinda the basis that BMX was born from so I thought I'd share this one.

The 4th picture is how I found this bike, as you can see it took LOTS of work.

Parts list

Frame: 1969 Western Flyer - Fast one with all tabs and brake plates shaved and rear dropouts cut 1/2 inch deeper (To make clearance for the tire)

Fork: Triple tree from some mountain bike I think it was a Mongoose with the legs shortened 4 inches

Handlebars: Schwinn Mini-apes

Sprocket: Schwinn "Lucky 7"

Tires: 20x3 West Coast Chopper rear and 1.75 Schwinn Brick tread front

Wheelie bar: made from 2 sissy bars and some roller blade wheels

Wheels: Safe-lite mags

If you are interested there is a build thread on RatRodBikes just look me up (Outskirtscustoms) and search for the bike's name "Dark Horse 2" named after the Stone, Woods, and Cook Dragster that inspired the build.
