Looking super slick!!!!
Is the bomb the same base creme color? Have you thought about making it's base color something different (maybe a little silver) so that it looks more separated from the body and not like it is part of the body? Just an idea.
Love it man, just the right patina touches but still keeping it classy as dangit!
Actually no.
The bomb was left in the white primer, then given the rusty treatment.
I was going to paint it grey and sand through to expose the "rust", but I like it as is.

So I don't have great graphics tools at my disposal, but if you could get a fork with a little more 'rake' to it, which would set the axle out front more; that would effectively drop the tail of the front 'fender' piece and also move it forward a bit to clear your pedal.

And, if you used a 700c or 29er length fork, it would bring your front end up a bit, for a 'tail draggin' caddy' effect....:cool:

Yellow lines show my idea...

I don't mind the fender, I keep the pedals up in a turn.
And if I got rid of the 26 rear fender and made a bracket to hold the body, it would drop a couple inches.
