    This is what it looked like the day I purchased it. It took 3 days to get enough grime of of it to take it apart!

    This is (finally) pretty much done. I'll likely add some gee-gaws and make changes along the line. Been riding it all week.

    Thanks. I appreciate the kind words. I had gotten some rat-traps from porkchop for this bike, and I'd gotten the bearclaws for a different build. Once I took another look, though, I knew i had to rock the Bears on the INB. I discovered porkchop a little while back, and I'm really glad they sell stuff to support OPC/older standards.

    My son wants to build a bike for him to ride at Kent State so I picked up another Worksman yesterday from an industrial surplus. Cost $40.00!

    I finished this project a couple of days ago and I'm really happy how it turned out.
