    Last years went about 20 mph.

    This one will be lighter and 52v instead of about 40. That should translate to speed.

    I can’t help but get inspired after picking up this over the weekend. “Streamline” is a beautiful thing isn’t it.

    Sold to a customer with a Schwinn Aerocycle but a work of art like this will get you in the mood for 30’s design.

    I'm really charged up on this superb build. Need to calm down. Maybe the Lithium I on will kick in soon. I have an entire battery of bad puns. I'll stop now. Don't want any negative feelings about me. Only positive. Sorry, just had two scotches.

    I’m positive this thread is off track. I don’t mean to be negative, but it’s full of static... Back to builing!

    Added this cool “Edison” water slide decal on the tank.

    Also found a cool seat and bar option. Still a long way to go.

    Hopefully I haven’t lost everyone’s interest yet.

    I finally figured out the fender situation.

    The stays had to bolt on in two different places and I had to notch the fender for the leaf spring but it was all done in similar ways to the old motorcycle leaf spring forks.

    Looking good.
    Couldn't you have just bolted the fender to the vertical springer bars with some standoffs?

    I think you two are the only guys following this build anymore so thank you!

    The fender cut out was to allow the fender room so that it would not scrape the top of the tire when in action. I’ll clean up that raw cut a little more later.
