    Doh!!!

    How did I miss this one?

    Looks great, really like the flowing lines on the frame, and nice choice of wheels/tires, gives it a real tough look IMO.

    Cant wait to see it done.

    thanks
    just flash rust....no gloves worn yet plus lots of rain and humidity(fwiw i work fast when people toss money my way :p )
    some metal prep and a scuff pad will make short work of it before it sees primer&paint...
    ohhhh....i forgot to mention why im not running a 1" pitch chain on this one!

    That seat looks great. I also like the bars you have on there. What about the reach though?

    what....you think id make a bike that i couldnt ride? :p
    [​IMG]
    dont mind the stem....i was just trying to figure out the exact reach i wanted
    [​IMG]
    dont know if that picture helps but its quite comfortable(its only about 7-8" longer than a schwinn canti frame with 26" wheels)....i did my homework and actually thought about what i wanted before i started with the steel :shock:
    once its all solid ill get a riding video up if i can talk the wife into taking one

    Not as long as I thought. Hard to judge by the pics. Was just hoping you wouldn't put some sort of beach/cruiser bars on it.
