    what i started with interesting side story this build was only about 15 dollars worth of paint the rest of the parts i had laying around it was definitely low budget goes to show it don't take a million dollars to build a cool bike chain was color matched with the same paint i used on my frame i did not get to add the cate due to the rear rack was too small and i am happy with the way the rear rack looks as it sits 76235_e45e660f443fc23dcb6b5ac6e4026a14.jpg

    thanks it rides but comfort is a low 1 at best but i built it for looks mainly it is OK but the lack of seat foam kills my 45 year old butt i have been riding it around and it gets looks surprisingly more then i expected i tried some new techniques with this one like the painted chain and color matching everything and actually following a theme kept some of the dents and rust to make it look enjoyed the bike shop i got it from s shocked i made it look so good they were gonna part it out no bike is truly dead

    you know it i actually used some of your ideas when i put the white parts on it i left them dented and rusty on purpose to give it a used look thanks for the ideas they fit well into the build

    thanks bro yeah i wanted some old school flavor to it the bike itself is 1988 some of the parts are 1979-1980 era so not quite era correct but i like the results i ride this thing every day and everyone likes it i had the front wheel break a hub bearing case s i got a different front wheel but it is temporary until i get another correct wheel but i am considering swapping the wheels anyways with better ones so i may just leave it it cruises better with the newer wheel on it anyways
