I originally bought an old ActionBent High Racer frame from Warren for my sons to ride. But, it's too tall and too long for my younger son. I planned to put shorter wheels on it (451 or 520) so he could reach the ground, but I couldn't find anyone to modify the aluminum frame the way I wanted it done.

The 2nd ABHR I bought from Jerry will fit my older son now just fine.

So, instead of modifying the 2nd AB frame, I'll just build my younger son a proper fitting high racer.

Here's the plan:

It's drawn to fit both 520's and 559's (as he grows). Hopefully, he'll be able to ride this for a few years before he outgrows it.

Cut tubes last night, going to start fitting pieces up today and hopefully get the main boom brazed up this weekend.

Main tube assembly done. Now, on to the rear triangle...

...especially as simple as a stick bike is to build...

That looks great. You'd think they'd be a market for bikes for shorter folk. Except that myself and others tried and the market just isn't there.
