Yep, decided to make one of these to add to my stable, just to see how it rides.....or indeed if it rides.

Using the Lightning P-38 as my inspiration, mostly square stainless tubing for ease of build. Will go with 20" front wheel, and 24" rear.

My previous builds had straight chain lines, but for this one gotta figure some chain management, which will be a headache.

Anyways, a few pics thus far:

half inch square tube bends easily on wooden former

two top-rails ready for trimming

a plank comes in handy to make a jig

fork is a shortened 26" one from an old MTB

tacked up ready for next stage.......
