    Anyone know where they sell Lowrider bike frames in Ontario? I have no problem driving allmost anywhere in Ontario I just don't want to order one unless I have to. I'm looking for a 20" frame but will even take a 16" one but just gotta find a place selling them. If you don't know what I'm talking about this is one.

    :lol: There is probably a good reason noone sells em cause its not ghetto enough there 8) Could always get raw materials and make one yourself if you have access to a welder and a tube bender. That pretty basic work and not at all that hard.

    I was waiting on the replys to this. Lol. I was thinking about building one actuaily but they are only $35 plus shipping to buy so I was wondering if it was worth the headache. If I wasn't affraid of it getting damaged in shipping I would have allready ordered one thats why I'm trying to find a place I can drive to. I'm actuaily 26 and have no intent to drive this thing but I have allways wanted to build one with sides and have a mural airbrushed on the sides and lotsa gold stuff stapled to it. I'm just super ghetto. WHat can I say? lol

    you don't want a 16" frame, I can barely even ride that, and i'm little lol.. 20" will work fine..

    theres a few places in toronto, I had ordered my 144 spoke rims from a place in london ontario called richardson cycle plus, but after about 2-3 weeks from my purchase they had closed down, I figure because they were ripping people off, I had paid 200$+ for my 144 spoke rims ALONE no tires, with shipping..

    so some of these places are pretty bad.. I do have a couple 20" lowrider bike frames that need to get painted n stuff I was going to build for some friends, I can see if they wanna sell em

    I was talking to a buddy of mine on sunday night who is big into mountain bike racing or whatever he does so I asked if he had seen any of these bikes at any stores. He told me to check a store in town out. I went there yesterday and these guys stock all kinds of stuff for them. I was in a rush and on my way to London so I'm gonna go back and grab a frame some time this week. It's great because this guy is about 5 min from me. If anyone else wants parts or bikes and are near Gulph check out Backpeddling. They just have tons of all kinds of bikes there and were realy friendly too.

    4door, you can't afford anything unless you're whoring out your mother! Worry about getting your license, not a bicycle!

    Check out the website for info on where they are. http://www.backpeddling.com/ If I tried telling you how to get there you would be even more lost then if you went in with no directions. Lol. They stock a good bit of chrome items but not many of the gold ones which is what I want for mine. You can also check out a place called Maca. They only do orders or will arrange pickup in Oshawa but no store front. http://www.maca-over-limits.com

    nice find, but that richardson cycle place that went out of business I think sold the non-twisted forks for like 50$

    Realy? Thats cheaper then the sell them in the us now. SOme of these parts are horribly priced. The cheapest I have for my 3 144 spoke 20" rims in gold finish is like $300 with the shipping. Thats more then I payed for some of my cars. I can easily see this stupid bike being over $2000 when it's finished. Kinda nuts for a bicycle realy. Oh well. It is fun. Lol

    Well I finaily did it.

    I just picked up a complete bike lastnight. I wanted to build from frame up but the bike was only $150 and has a piss load of cool stuff with it. I started stripping it down allready and with any luck I will start welding sides on it this weekend depending on how much time I have.
