    Nice vintage styling, a very tasteful faux-retro ride indeed. I'd consider some vintage pedals instead of the plastic ones and have some gold pin-striping done on the tank to complete the look.

    Yea the plastic folding pedals are so I can get it in my van,but it would only take a few minutes to take screw on ones off.I keep on scratching the paint so re- paint and pin striping planed.

    I made it by welding a step through electric bike frame and a mountain bike frame together,and adding a second crossbar.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
