    Yes I did, I found em on fleabay, I'm thinking they are going to give it that 'touch' that it needs.
    I really would like to find a nice heavy chrome chain guard for it (hint),
    hit me up if any of you might have one kicking around. Thanks 8)

    I'm finally done! I posted the new pictures in the 'gallery' section. Thanks for all the nice comments. I should've entered the build, but I think I'm just happy to have taken a decrepit bike and gave it a new lease on life...I'm happy :D

    Great to see that you are still enjoying this bike and are able to tweak it here and there for you needs.

    One of my favorite RRB builds!!!

    I really had no choice! I had to put it where I could see it.
    If I shine my light down it acts as a dash light! Awesome...
