    Re: Back Alley Sally

    Well got some work done this weekend, I started painting the rear wheel and did alot of mystery razor work on the frame I decided to put the seat back and found a crank to modify for a post. I think I found some other bars to use with the head set. The shifter is going to be interesting to mount I am still working on that also. 8)

    Re: Back Alley Sally

    Well another weekend, finished my rear wheel I painted my forks bright yellow....not sure if I like it but there is a method to my madness. I found a partial huffy in front of a tire shop and didn't think to much of it till I seen the apple green shifter cables...free for me and I found mystery brackets at a thrift store that looks like they will mount the shifter....slowly but surely Sally's coming :mrgreen:

    The pedals still need disassembly and the black is going green to match wheels the front fork is going to be striped like a certain Kleenex box design....hmmmm 8)

    Re: Back Alley Sally 8/22/08 Its coming together!

    Friday is here, I traded two frozen baby fryer chickens for the other bike chain I needed and I am going to pick up the seat I need today. I got the shifter mounted to the frame I am just working out the bugs and then to finish the paint details, I picked up another set of grips that look more old school and then to get some photos of it, should be real close to done this weekend but on the same token I have to go shopping in Sac Sunday and part of the day Saturday do a car wash for the youth group, I will find time :roll:
