    I love when a vision works in real life. I bought this JC Higgins 16 inch bike to make a cool pig bike. Since they used rat trap forks on JC Higgins bikes I thought a Screamer fork would be a perfect fit. A 15 inch seat and some midget sized handlebars in the change over of parts. A fat Duro 16 x 3 rear tire. This is the first real mock up of it. I have a silver mylar striped seat I can also use. Not sure on paint color yet. I will probably remove the fork reflectors or buy a different fork without them. I have a few Screamer front rims to make a matched set of rims for it. It started life as a hard tire bike. Now it will get a major upgrade.
