    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] well she is all done and delivered. This bike was commissioned to honor her sister who sadly pasted away. Based on an extremely rough schwinn canti frame i cut out the mangled seat post tube replaced by a curved piece similar to an elgin. Also the rear drop outs were very rough so i whacked them off and made rear facing drops that lower the rear 1". Fork is an unknown prewar, old nickel plated bars and stem. Kept it clean, minimal pinstriping and done. It rides amazing, i cant get over the ride. Thanks to all the fellow builders who helped me along on her, and a big thanks to p-lo for helping me locate a frame. Good luck to you all in build off 10, its been fun.

    CONGRATS BROTHER!!!!
    Always so cool to follow one of your builds.
    At first my favorite part was the curved seat tube you did, but now that it's done, your striping grabs top honors from me.
    BRAVO!!!!

    Killer build-up. The stripes are excellent, as usual.

    Just a great look overall! Clean, fat and flowy, perfect color combo, nice add-on touches but not over the top....and the pin striping...right on! Congrats on a cool build!

    Fantastic build. Color scheme, pin striping, parts choice, and frame changes make this thing rad.

    Haha thank you, i love how this bike came out too. No crazy fork this year but this bike really didn't need it. I kinda went back to my roots on this build.
