    The 1967 custom "Stingray" is complete minus a little 3 speed tweaking....
    Side 1.JPG
    Its a compressed frame bike but now uses a Stingray length crank, 1970+ handlebars, a set of S-7 wheels with a 3 speed, a Fairlady rear fender, and a fork that I had bent from a 26" Breeze with a Wald mini front fender.

    The fork helps lengthen the bike and move the CG forward. Even at my weight, it doesn't lift the front end. (unless you want to!)

    An S-7 Gripper Slik and white generic pedals.

    I had the tank chromed and a pinstripe added.

    A three speed shifter (purchased from someone on this board...)

    The powder coat color came out a little darker than envisioned but looks great in the sun.

    Not quite a match to the violet in the seat but it works.

    The word 'groovy' has already been used twice; but I say again...
    Groovy! Great muscle theme with girl bike touches. Well done!
