    I am getting errors too.
    I started a thread on it and tagged Steve.

    I saved the pics to my PC, and it all seems to work that way.

    Okay - so the trick seems to be... create the post first, and you can successfully add pic via Edit, afterward.

    No issues viewing it here. Dig the retro-mod look of this! Custom leather work, design flow....:thumbsup:

    Looks like an all-day rider too!

    Thanks! Yeah, if I was going to just cruise around town all day, this is pretty much the ride of choice. If I need to make miles, I have a vintage Raleigh Competition in a similar color scheme that would probably get the nod. The nice thing bout that four-pawl Hornet108 freewheel on here is that I don't need a bell. All I need to do is coast, and they can hear me coming.

    I have an Alien hub with this crazy inverted cartridge freewheel assembly. Really need to build it into a wheelset soon.

    Thanks fellas! I sort of regret not being able to finish my original concept, but I have to admit this is a pretty sweet compromise.

    Nice blend of the colors and those mags are the bomb.

    I scored a "new" set of wheels for it that I'll swap out next week. Phil Wood hubs, HED 650B hoops and Rivendell/Panaracer tires. In the meantime, thanks to all who dropped a vote for this bike.

    Your builds always have a heavy dose of "coolness" to them that I really like.

    Thanks. I try to go in with an idea, and some sort of plan, and I do my best to respect the bike and its history, if that makes any sense. I also like to try doing things a little differently than everyone else. If that translates into cool, then that's cool by me. :cool2:

    A nearly new HED/Phil Wood wheelset arrived on Friday, wrapped in 650-41.5B Fatty Rumpkin rubber. Now Tycoon is far lighter, and a larger percentage American made. IMG_20180820_123354_156.jpg IMG_20180820_122932_591.jpg
