    Each little detail this keeps getting better and better.
    This beauty is a definite contender in my book.

    I got the decal in the mail today I was waiting on . The skylark got its wings . I thought a little detail on the saddle pan would look cool . [​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice touch on the saddle. I like the contrasting sheen of the decals to the aged metal.

    I wasn’t sure how it would look but I like it I guess. I kinda wish I had misted the decal with some flat paint to make it look a little aged .
    But that’s to late now .

    Ok I made my nexus 3 speed shifter today. It consists of a sauce dipping cup that fit snug over the rubber shift grip . I had my friend Ed the welder , weld on a 3” or so long rod to it . Then I found a spring in my parts box they slid over the rod . I wiped in to home-depot after work and pick up a cabinet knob i though would look cool . I had to drill the knob so it would fit the diameter of the rod . Spared some paint on them to age it a bit and some scent color . Not bad for $5 bucks . I had ever thing but the knob .[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It actually fits tight without anything but I still may put a little glue just to be safe
