Great looking bike. It's screaming for fat tires.
Installed the taillight, after removing the visor. Now it reminds me of a '56 Chevy.
I like it as it sits! A stretch BMXer; who'da thunkit? If it were one of your guitars, it'd be a bass, for sure. This will be very interesting.
I bought two of these many months ago from Ruff, thinking I'd find a use for them. I'm gonna tuck one under the back of the seat.

Thanks, it was fairly simple.
I got the fender on. I'm happy with it. Dig that fin!
I usually like to build a spare, stripped-down, purposeful bike, but I...

I could call it finished now, but I'm still ruminating about:
- a taillight
- a fender or two
- a more "Schwinn-like" chainwheel,...
Got up early this morning and stole some time to mount the banana seat. Look closely and you'll see a green contrasting seat bracket.
It's Duplicolor Vinyl & Fabric specialty coating. I've used their black before. I have to admit that it rubs off a bit with use. We'll see how...
