    Done! Pre-War Rollfast, more of a restoration than anything. New Departure 2 speed, coaster hub. Not going to win anything but I had a lot of fun doing it. A lot of amazing talent in this competition I am honored to have shared in the fun.

    Beautifully done! Your paint scheme is stunning. Love the way the rim color rolls right into the whitewalls to create a massive ww look! Whole bike is tied together well.....looks like it just "rolled" off the showroom floor!

    The more I look at it, the better it gets. I'm also very impressed that your wife shares your hobby with you.

    Great restoration, I've got a few of the Deco stems like yours. Yours is the nicest I've ever seen.

    The BOA-G Brown tires arrived today, I mounted them on the rims, they looked amazing with the creme rims. Put them on the bike, the just fit the frame like a glove. Stood back and looked at it and ... nope they don't look right on this build. Oh well .. my color on the next cruiser
    will center around brown BOA-G tires....

    Thanksfor the info Vintage - Iron, I would rather purchase it straight out from someone on this site for a quoted price instead of playing the eBay game.
