    Had a chance to paint the rims up. Was thinking of just black, or just gray, and came up with this.
    First, I painted them just black.

    Then I thought of a way to paint them with gray also. I taped off the inside flat area exposing the angled side of the rim, and sprayed it gray.

    And this is how they turned out.

    I also had a chance to come up with something for the handlebars. Started with these old ape hangers.

    Then I got 2 sections off this old exercise bike.

    Trimmed off the bolt holes to slide them on the smaller apehangers.

    And I have an idea for these steerhorns that came off a cutting board.

    Everytime I see this thread that pops into my head. The bike is appropriate to the theme. Looking cool! 8)
