    The colours are annoying and will be gone soon! CWC build for sure.

    Crashed Comet! This bike is going to cause a crater on the forum!

    Good luck with the build.

    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.

    Cheers.

    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.
