    I'm loving the way this is turning out, that paint is very cool. I purchased a Nexus for my build as well, but I have nothing that touches the cool of that shifter.

    Tires fit good now but i did have to spread the frame I did it the same way as i did my Coke bike (link to thread in my signature page 1) but instead of borrowing the coil spring compressor tool I just bought it this time so Pick, Randy, Cody,Cameron,Mitch, Tim or any other locals need it your welcome to it :D

    chain guard and possible shifter location :? also will take the shifter apart and paint it to match the chain guard to tie in the color a little bit to the rest of the bike but its pretty close already 8) [​IMG]

    How do you reach that long shifter arm to change gears? It looks kind of... fleshy?
