    I forgot to mention that I will be picking up some fine scotchbrite pads this afternoon to bring down the shine on the fenders (front fender as well even though it is not mounted in the pics) Or, who knows, i might mess around with some way to patina them so that they match the sprocket and bars.

    Thanks, I was going to use it on my 37 Roadmaster but decided not to. Just really like the way it sits on this bike.

    Dang, saw this and it really made me want to roll with a complete set of Sulky white walls. The color combo just looks great imo.

    Since I decided to go with a larger sprocket, I had to lengthen my chain. Luckily, I have a couple skiptooth chains lying around to do so, I ended up only having to add one link.

    I searched around my parts bin and found a set of BB bearings and races that would fit properly and I had it assembled right away. I also did the same for a headset.

    I still haven't covered my seat, I'm just so lazy and not looking forward to it at all, I find it a real pain in ...... Haha.

    Basically, the only issue is that since I'm using both a larger crank and sprocket, the left leg on my crank is hitting my frame. It's not too big of a deal, I'm just going to shave it down when I get a chance tomorrow, and quickly touch up the paint.

    Should be able to wrap things up in time, parts wise, I'm looking for a new quill stem, this one sticking out way to much and looks stupid, other than, almost done.

    I actually started the seat, but just got lazy once I had shaped the foam.

    I'd grind my crank end before my frame.... just my two cents....
    But the look is there man, cool.
