    Thanks for all your kind words!............Getting there now!. Had to re-order the fenders (mis labeled). In the meantime, started putting it together. Once the fenders are in, then I'll just have to secure the seat and mount the chain. I hope I like the look of the fenders!

    Well in the past I have welded a "fender" washer. But, I forgot this time. So I went to my local hardware store, with the BB cup and found a cabinet or closet recessed ( about 1/2 in) handle, It SNAPPED right in to the cup, poifectly. So I painted the BB cup black and the handle the same color as the bike. I'm putting a small reflector in the 1/2 in recess.

    Got the fenders on Wednesday. Primed them, clear coated them, put them on. I hate em, makes the bike look like a TOY! They are nice fenders, just not for this bike. They are SOON to be in the "classified" section. (I hate em) :x
