1974 Shopper
I've been having problems with my back - which is the perfect excuse to build another Twenty! How about one with higher bars? That should relieve stress on my herniated discs. I've done all the usual tweeks - just with a riser bar instead of drops or bullhorns.

Really like the minimalist looks to your latest creation. Much prefer the upright 'cruiser' position myself , allows enjoyment of the surrounding view without discomfort. I also find it easier to manoeuvre the smaller 20 wheels at a slower speed with the standard upright bars , and a little forward tilt helps on the hills. This looks like a fast ,responsive machine. Perfect for the summer :) Enjoy
