    finaly after months of procrastination and tinkerin',( or should I say fighting parts thats just refused to co-operate ) this bike has finally
    come together and actully still within my original theme... a newsboy bike though not quite what I had originally thought up but what the hey!
    This turned out to be a 2 day crunch build, the frame was rust and 3 layers of peeling pain yesterday and today a good rider that I like a lot.
    Before
