This is my bare alloy Electra Custom, inspired by European porteur style bikes. The original build was much more along the lines of a dragster, however I decided to build a bike I could carry picnic food on during rides with my wife.

Highlights include:
* Bare metal brushed alloy frame, matching brushed bell
* Brooks saddle and grips
* Polished alloy rack with integrated vintage bullet headlight
* Timber tank inserts with hand painted sign writing

Oh whoa! Really like that crate on the front rack! Gives it a whole new vibe!
Your headlight placement is perfect. Love the color accents to the bare frame. Nice work on the tank insert as well! Production quality bike....:thumbsup:
