    It's understated name in no way reflects its ultra coolness!
    Nice job!

    So in the build thread for this one @rrtbike suggested black wall tires... I hadn’t been able to shake the possibility of how good that’d look. So, when a nice pair of grand tycoons became available out of my stash, I knew right where they were goin.
    Also, swapped the fork to a ‘82 Schwinn fork.

    The fading on the non drive side really brings it together
