Arent those electra tires?
did you not try electra for creamies?
They look like the "Kendas'" That I got out bid on,on ebay!...........Bike COLOR ...nice!
I'm not sure what brand they are. I think they were a buy it now item on ebay. If you do a search for "balloon tire" I think you can find them. They come in red or white.
looks good! cant wait to see her bolted up :mrgreen:
Nice choice in the orange. Looks great.
Some more progress pics.
Thats just a cardboard template for the tank.
I need to pop in to see some more of these bikes in person again
Come on out for a visit any time. Oh, and bring bicycle parts!
This is coming along really nice. Where did you find the sprocket? i have a bike/build in mind that I would like to find the same sprocket. I like the seat too, Long spring with original leather , mmmmmm! 8)
I got the sprocket on ebay. I think its a Shelby but, I'm not sure.
I finally got the spokes for the front wheel and laced in a rechromed New Departure front hub. I've started building the truss fork and I bobbed the original rear fender. The Torrington stem will need some TLC but its a good solid starting point. I have the "tank" halves cut out and sanded but, I'm still not 100% sure which direction the final tank construction will go. Here are some detail shots of my progress so far.
Looks incredible so far....the color combo is very cool.
Wow those coonlors with the chrome looks great. That fork modelfication is great.
looks great! now are you gonna trim all the flash off those tires?(only reason i ask is because ive done it before :roll: )
I had not really given it any thought. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to finish in time!
ahhhhhhhhhh youve still got a month left!
I like the color combo. Makes me want a creamsicle.
My elementary school colors! Go Dragons! I can't wait to see the finished pics of this bike.
