    Yes! That's the right angle. Headlight in there, and she's good to go.

    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.

    There's more than just a headlight going up front.

    If You used another crankset with more Q-factor it might help with the pedal-fender problem.

    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.

    Really nice work Falstaff, thanks for the tutorial on distressed paint technique.

    I'm guessing the headlight may be an 'inside' job?:39:

    No, it actually fits in from the outside.
    The bezel is conical, then held in place with a screw.
