MAKE Instructable group member KoolKat from AtomicZombie has another super-cool chopper project – “Another easy and affordable project! Transform a standard bike into something cool and unique in just a day or two – seriously! This is a great garage or backyard project that doesn’t require special tools or skills, although basic welding is required.

This classic 1970’s style chop was named and built by Enzo and Nathan (father and son team) from an old mountain bike that was found laying in the mud at the city dump.

Instead of the extended front forks, this chopper is roughly styled after the classic Raleigh Chopper bicycle with the straight frame and tiny front wheel. This project requires no extra tubing in the frame, and except for a few small add-ons, only requires cutting and welding two frame tubes.

Any mountain bike with 26 or 24 inch wheels can be used for this project. Besides replacing the seat and handlebars, you will only need a front wheel of any size smaller than the original rear wheel. A 16-inch wheel was chosen for this build.”Link.
