Adult Muscle Bike... conversion kits?
#1
Have a bunch of older MTB's laying around(Huffy, Roadmaster, ect)  and was looking to do something with them. I see that they are selling Muscle bike kits(banana seat, ape hanger bars, grips, mirrors and sissy bars), but do they sell them for the adult type bikes?
Always loved those type bikes, but I'm way too tall to ride an original and if I can get the parts, I might make a couple.
Thanks

i have changed MB handle bars out to the old V handle bars and added fenders and a fat cruiser seat to get a different look. Sometimes I have have replace brake and shift cables to re-position the levers into the new handle bar positions. i have not done a banana seat conversion but it sounds interesting. you got me on the lookout now for a donar bike. good luck with whatever you decide.
