Sharp looking bike! 8)
Thanks for the compliments!
Dr. T, I picked that up at my local CARQUEST Auto Parts.
Nice work! I like the way the whitewalls look with the white rims. I'm using white rims on my BO7 bike. I was considering painting them black and using whitewalls, but this has me thinking. I may just do a 3/8" black stripe on the edge of the rims now.
I like the seat post. Is that a 45 degree pipe elbow? If so what did you use to attach the seat post pieces to it?
Thanks! It is a 45 degree elbow, and it's 1/2" pipe...an 8" piece down the tube, and a 6" piece to the seat.
Did you use JB weld at the seems or did you weld them?
Niether. Just cranked them in with a vise and pipe wrench. This is the second one I've done like this, and they don't move (if you get them tight enough)
That's an awesome bike. I'm using clear over patina on my bike too, though my bike is going to be kinda like a polished poo :lol: . What's the OD on 1/2 inch pipe? I like that seatpost, wanna copy!!
It's basically 7/8". It went in the tube easier than the original post, but the clamp tightened it up nicely...it ended up costing under $6 too
So, I added a fitting headbadge decal, and got a cool vintage light (originally a handlebar-mount type) on ebay and mounted it on the front fender. Will post pics when I take them
WOW!!!! That is a super cool ride. your pinstripes came out killer. 8) :mrgreen:
This is why I love this site. I have to try this.
Really like the bike!
