    20180512_163433.jpg I have a 59-62 girls rollfast that I am going to do a sex change on which is where I came up with the name. Not sure what all else I plan on doing to it yet but will definitely be up for ideas on how to match the patina where I plan on doing some cutting and welding. Hopefully not using a name someone else has I am new here.

    Welcome Brian! Looks like you have a good bike to start with and a plan. You are on your way to your first RRB build off build!

    Seeing all these builds going on and I can't get to start because the only place I have to work is outside and it's been raining everyday since Saturday :(

    Thanks. I cut the top bar from a 26" frame and then shortened it to fit this 24" frame. Using the longer bar allowed it to be fitted just right to allow the lines to flow seamlessly into the seat stays. My buddy (who helped me a lot on this) and I are very happy with the way it turned out.

    Just a posting tip, it is best to select "Full Image" for your pics so that they show up fully as people are scrolling through and they don't have to click on the thumbnail to see them.
    Love those winged fenders.

    Still been getting a lot of rain here so decided to get some of the small stuff out the way. Took the flares off the black fenders and mocked up them up on the stock fenders look good to me. Also rigged up the fender light with the guts out of a cheap flashlight just need to figure out how to hold everything in place and get the wires soldered. Just glad we have a while to go yet on the build off.
