I am throwing my hat in the ring for the heck of it. I have the tank to start.
Nice start now make it happen.
The colours are annoying and will be gone soon! CWC build for sure.
Sweet start! :mrgreen:
Crashed Comet! This bike is going to cause a crater on the forum!
Good luck with the build.
Hey Jordan! Great to see you here & of course great to see another CWC in the mix - gotta love those straight down tubes. Have Fun! Robert
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Great start! I like the name! I'll be watching
I like it. Very cool start ...
Hey Jordan! Are you gonna give me something to look at or what? Need pics of progress. Can't let the CWC Team down. Have Fun! Robert
Tank and a cool shifter!
Lol Robert. There has been progress made, pics soon. I just spent a few days camping and fishing in Algonquin Park up here. Now time to get back to work on this!
This is a heck of a time to take a recess, but man cannot live on work alone so you get a pardon. Still anxious to see what you come up with - I'm watching all the CWC builds closely. Have Fun! Robert
I got out the paint stripper gel and some sand paper for that horrible tank paint scheme. Here's what I came up with.
Dug out a crusty Shockmaster fork for a possible piece. I may use a couple. I like the pre-war tubular legged ones better.
I also dug out some crusty Rollfast Roamer duck tail fenders, now where did I put my cutting wheel?
I think the old green paint is going to go over the next couple of days as well.
A couple pics of my canvas. Late '30s CWC straight down tube goodness!
Ya gotta love a CWC Straight Down Tube Frame for a Buildoff Bike - I think it's the perfect beginning. I've got two different top bar configurations with my '38s - one is just like yours and then my Buildoff Frame has the parallel Top Tubes. I'm just happy to have one of each. But a Comet Tank beats a piece of PVC any day of the week - great start. Have Fun! Robert
Dug out a Comet chain guard. Now time to strip some paint!
I am digging a bare metal and crusty paint look.
