    It's about time you showed up! Been wondering if you were going to jump in!

    What kind of tire is that rear slick?

    Figured you weren't just building a girls bike...welcome to the party. Looks like you got something interesting cooking.

    You buzzed down another tire to make it into that slick?

    Glad to see you in the fun again! Your craftsmanship and style are always so cool to follow.
    That was some quick restyling of that frame. I love the lines and flow so far!

    weird pedals from a old stationary bike
    20180529_215234.jpg

    i finished the welding but something moved in the rear , might just notch the dropout to make the wheel fit straight
    anyhow , this is what it looks like after 1day :)

    now thinking of a name change to : ''Time frame'' :39:

    The bike has a cool vibe, and your signature stamp on it OHP! Take some pics for your final photo before you change the bars , etc. This looks cool as it sits. Then modify for riding later.
