Default mini MINI chopper build

ive been building this at work on my breaks out of scrap metal. it is all steel except aluminum tank and is all hand made.colored the tire with heat from torch .functioning wheel and forks. it is about the size of a 20 oz pop bottle to put it into perspective. still needs rear wheel and handle bars then maybe tiny details like carbs, kick start, and whatever else i come up with lol. just thought id share

Pretty cool. I have been working on one like that for 4yrs now. I still don't have it done. I'm looking forward to seeing it complete.

Here's some stuff I've done.

I thought this thread was titled "MINI cooper build" I was actually eagerly anticipating the epic fail that I was about to witness.....

I fail at reading but this thread brings the WIN in lots of ways. Those things rock, great work.

heres a few more shots of the bike, the back of the frame needs to be cut down, i didnt have anything to go from cause the frame is what i built first so its a little out of proportion.

What did you make the wheel spokes out of? Is it a single piece or more than one to make the spokes.
