    Of course I had to jump into this build off... Kinda wish I had saved a couple of my already-almost-done SpaceLiner customs for the build off but it gives me a reason to start a new one. Here is what I will be starting with:

    [​IMG]
    I had built up this FleetWing Mariner I got from Joe as an easy cruiser for my girl with a rack for her radio, but we broke up cuz we lived in different states... I went and got the bike back.

    I have a chrome tank that I am going to try to make fit...

    Not sure about the rest of the parts I am going to put on it. We shall see.

    Nice ride.

    Is that some "engine turning" treatment on the chainguard? If so can we see a close up of it?

    Thanks

    That was a sweet movie. This should be a cool bike!

    Re: the Navigator

    picked up the bike a while ago... but I've been distracted with my Roadmaster project.

    Anyway, here is the "before" picture.

    and here is a rough mock-up... nothing is actually attached, still waiting on a couple parts.
    But this is the general idea:

    more to come...

    the chainguard will not actually be gold... going to strip it or repaint it.

    [​IMG]
    the seat will actually be a little higher than that when mounted, with "bounce-room"

    [​IMG]
    Going to be mounting this up here... somehow.

    it's between this chainring and one that I am getting in a couple of days...

    That's looking great so far! Especially since it is sticking with the "Space" theme.

    I'm gunna go out on a limb and say it doesn't need a tank. But I could be wrong. Really like it so far Joey.

    Dude! This is why I was stoked to have you jump in on this build-off! I don't know how you can have so many unique ways to do up a spaceliner, man!

    That looks great. I like the brass chainguard with all the chrome. The spiro sprocket would look great if it was all silver.
