    RRB sticker aside, it might be cool to keep the decals all in red, white and blue (like the STP).
    Keep it up young'in!

    Have you figured out your seat height dilema? I've mentioned him before, but Marty at 1018 Kustoms has some cool 'lucky 7' posts that may not only set the seat back, but lower too.

    Thanks Dr.T :wink: I'm just gonna lower my seat post :mrgreen: Yeah, I was thinking of keeping the decals all red, white and blue too :wink: The only dilema I have is that my rear wheel has "s" bends in it :( So I gotta look for a new one for cheap :|

    I like the chrome fender, it repeats the chrome color from the fork.
    What's planned for the rear tire? Or is it a secret (hint, 26" Jerald slick would look cool, hint, hint).

    Just playing around with my tank idea and horrible MS paint skills, someone with Photoshop could make it look WAY better!

    I thought they were 'officially' a 26 x 2.125 (closer to 2.25 installed). Will a balloon tire fit that frame?

    Weird? no...
    That's just the face of a proud young man and, rightfully so.
    The bobbed fender looks just about right. Just as the rest of the bike. Loving the mock-up sketch Dr Tankenstein did with that tank...

    Can't wait to see a reartire mounted on...

    It said on the can "Rustoleum Bright Coat Metallic Finish" :wink: More aluminum colored than chrome but hopefully my clearcoat will make it shine :D
