    Slipstream...
    It’s rideable, disk brakes not set up yet.
    I totally waited to the last minute to get going on this one. So glad I got it to the finish line. The Build Off is always a ton of fun to watch and especially participate in.
    Thanks to everyone who took a look, liked and commented.

    Started out with a 70’s Mohawk frame and some 26” mags off of eBay. Bought a disk brake kit... I think just about everything came out of my parts stash or free parts from friends.

    I love this bike!!!! Who needs brakes anyways :D
    You are the fender master and the other details are killer!
    Especially that slick paint scheme!!!
    WELL DONE Brother!!!

    You probably already know this, but Don't forget that when the Voting thread is created we will use the first pic from your Finished thread. I'm not suggesting anything is wrong with the current pic, just making sure everyone knows.

    THAT FENDER :43: Awesome! I love the color and these wheels are crazy!
    Will you be working on a rear fender as well or do you consider it done-done?

    Thanks for all the props!
    I had originally planned for a bobber rear fender. Wasn’t able to get one to fit with out clearance issues. Thought it would look ok with out it. But now the I see the bike all together at least the front of the rear tire needs to have the same fender coverage as the front tire. I think it will help the flow of the bike.. so yes it’s “done” but more to come. :cool:

    Did a little tweaking (on the bike) :cool: today. Front fender off tell I get the bike all dialed in rear fender to come. Got a “new” cool shifter from @Dr. Tankenstein. Going to set up a front derailleur also.
    I did just do a bolt on front disk brake tab to test the bike out stops great just with front brake .. bike rides fantastic Perfect riding position. :)
    A little video..
