    Done. I didn't get time to do a couple things, so had to either leave them or use parts from other bikes. I'm happy with how it turned out, and actually like this version better than the original build. It rides really well, and I had no problems during a 2 mile ride. The photo shoot was rushed as I was on a tight schedule, and looking at the pics now, I wished I had leveled pedals and aligned the writing on the tires.
    Details:
    Scratch built frame
    80mm rims
    Maxxis Holy Roller 24 x 2.4 tires
    Sachs Duomatic rear hub
    Redline cranks
    Brooks B68 saddle
    LED conversion on vintage headlight
    Vintage style microphone converted to tail light
    Modified Wald cruiser bars using threadless stems to mount to triple tree fork legs
    Leather tool bag

    Absolute killer bike. The lines of the frame are perfect, the components are great, and the lights and their placement just finishes it off. Love it.

    Sweet ride. Everything fits really well, to the point I could see nothing worth adding or subtracting, great job.

    I've always loved that mic light. This baby stretched out beautifully.
