    Yeah but it's not a banana
    it's not even a plantain...
    and I don't have a little sissy bar like that,
    and I gotta work on Muscle Spasm,
    and and and, we'll see...

    Carl.

    Heck, Guitar, I’m only seeing one of three requirements on your bike anyway. Your bike is definitely muscular, though. But like His Leniency OddJob (pboh) says, we’re a lenient bunch around here. The sissy would look rad.

    I hope I didn't side swipe your build. My apologies if I did!

    I had some thoughts on how it could be made fairly easily if you decide to pursue it.

    I keep telling you guys it ain't over yet. So, what will probably be the final look for The Wild One, wouldn't pass the the 3 laws of robotics... I mean the 3 requirements rules. But, I do have different bars for it I just haven't unveiled them yet. Only @CRASH knows because I got them from him long ago... Do they fit the build? Mmm well they're wild so that's all ya get... and the voting photo will pass the requirements.

    Carl.

    A little work on the fenders
    install skiptooth chain
    big fat headlight
    3 speed shifter

    Not a bad punchlist...[​IMG][​IMG]
    and it meets rule requirements in this configuration...

    Ain't nobody saying anything but isn't that the ugliest wrap tape you've ever seen...

    Carl, in this case, 'silence' isn't golden. :bigsmile:

    I wonder how long your saddle would have to be to qualify for 'naner status? Maybe a mini naner off of a 16 or 20" bike might work? In Mean Kid Black. Because, I really dig your bars (the ones before the, uh, wrapped apes) and you have the two dissimilar tire sizes....

    I don't know, you just have such a cool little muscle bike build going here. I'd hate to have the 'cool factor' lowered just to meet some rules.

    Now if I didn't go all 'James Dean' on that, I don't know what is! :21:

    A banana isn't going to happen.
    The "wrap" has got to go too. But I have a few more choices for tape and another set of apes (or two) Whatever goes on will be coming back off as soon as the voting picture has been taken. The low bars and chrome riveted seat are the final look. It'll be hanging in my studio eventually... I've got my punch list and another build to complete too!

    Worked on The Wild One today. I've got the skiptooth chain on, the rear fender sorted out and the 3 speed shifter on. Two screws short of finishing the front fender braces, but I did get the headlight mounted. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    No plan for mounting the license plate yet,
    but a 1953 cereal plate would be pretty cool on this '53 Lincoln.

    Carl.

    Cool plate, but the whole bike is black, not sure if it will suit?

    I haven't figured out how to mount it and have it look like it belongs there either... Color I never considered, real license plates rarely match...

    I did get the front fender braces done and I'm headed out to the garage to put it on right now...
