    the dreamcycle has melted! :x after 3 wks. of fighting the higgins frame,i took the optional frame change and got more done in 2 hrs.,than i had in 3 wks.! :D so now i`ll be using a early post war rollfast frame mated to a flopped spaceliner fork.this will be a more down and dirty build.i`m moving all the purdy parts over to my murray/elgin build,later in the fall! should have mock up pics tomorrow! :D [​IMG] [​IMG]

    took a couple of mock up pics before work this afternoon.i have pretty much decided on shooting the frame with red oxide primer.then painting the headtube and frame darts in almond w/ black pinstriping,then clear coating it. the red brick tires will be mounted on almond painted wheels.also leaning towards some apehangers,instead of the mystery bars! 8) after 3 wks. of frustration with the higgins,i`m just glad to be building again! :lol: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The flipped rat trap really suits the bike. So would that cool goose neck that was on it before. :| Too short?

    I love where this is going. And yeah, those handlebars are great. Tilt it a bit more forward and it'll line up perfectly with the headset and the curved bottom tube.

    bike is killer, great, strong stance to it, I think the bars make it. I have never seen bars like that - they seem to go with that bike good too...

    Re: Badd Mojo : 6/17 update

    heres an update as to where i`m at now! i ended up doing alot more painting than i had originally planned,but i really like the direction its heading! :D downside is,painting in 95-98 degree weather,then waiting a week for everything to cure,kinda slows things down. :x so far...the wheels have been painted almond,clear coated,and mounted on the red bricks.the front forks were taken apart,shot in ruddy brown primer,clear coated,then re-assembled.the fender was chopped down,then along with an old wflyer chainguard i had,stripped and painted with krylon textured finish metallic copper.the star sprocket and stem,are being painted in krylon satin metallic copper.also came up with a nice set of red/brown coke bottle grips! 8) and lastly...jerry,the guy who sells the repop majestic/persons pedals on ebay,is making me a special set of red block pedals! :wink: back to the sweatshop!
