I thought the same thing. Stronglight 93's are the best aluminum crank to cut down, due to their triangular shape.
I saw a grandmother plunk down 500 bucks for a stretched out chopper-style bike at a shop in Massachussetts the other day. I'm hard pressed to figure out how anybody would even be able to ride one of those things for over a mile. A grand for a handmade Pog doesn't seem too outrageous, but could you really bring yourself to drill that fork so the kid could have a brake? Of course, if you really want it as wall art, and your kid is addicted to video games, it might be the perfect gift.
