    Thanks guys. I'm keeping all the parts, even the bald rear tire :shock: . Basically I'll just do a paint job and add a couple of details.

    I found a busted rear rack in the parts bin. Military bikes need a lot of cargo space!

    Hugo, why don't you make a box inside the frame like the Swiss army bikes?

    Battle damage on my fender!

    I took that old 26 inch rack, turned it backwards, and trimmed it to fit. Just needs a bracket to mount it to the fork.

    Lots of space to transport ammunition

    Next: stripdown!

    The chrome on the handlebars and stem was looking a bit sorry, but I didn't want to paint them. I scavenged a sample of camouflage netting...

    ...and I got myself some "Chrome-o-flage" (r) !!

    [​IMG]

    It wasn't easy, but my cat helped me out: "Ah yes, I see what you did there. Looking good, carry on."

    [​IMG]

    NOW I'll do the stripdown.

    Terrible time-management skills have killed my BBO participation. I know I'm missing out on a lot of cool stuff and it's my fault. [slaps himself on the head]

    I do intend to finish this one, and if the moderators could move it to the Builds section, I'll eventualy get back to it. Hugs and kisses all around.
