When you start building bikes, it becomes an addiction. Most builders can't seem to just build only one project. We bike freaks love to build stuff.


This is the case of member "cjjunkie" who has a real passion for making bikes and trikes of all sizes. Here are some of his handmade rides and some happy riders who are all smiles about their rides:

I think what he meant was a "standard upright" bicycle. What an amazing gift to give someone. The freedom to ride!

sorry if my humor offends or confuses some. I know what he meant when he said it, but "normal bikes". . . i haven't seen one on this site yet - - at least by your definition. But you have to admit, her smile makes all the sweat, toil, and trouble worth it all. I don't know if I should laugh or cry after this thought came to mind writing this Kat, THAT is a "normal bike" to her. Ya know, R I D E A B L E!!! I am so grateful there are people like this on the earth, that can just jump in and create something for someone that truly appreciates it such as she will. the backalley rat.
