    Beautiful! Love the stencils and the kick-butt fender braces! If you offered 'em, I'd buy a set of braces from you! The 3spd ND hub is sexy-as heck!

    Gorgeous bike Axsepul!

    those braces are kind of tricky to make. it all depends on the type of fender and bicycle and the wheel position. in my case the bottom rear brace had to be redone again because i did the mock up with a smaller chainring and a normal 9 tooth rear cog. when i decided to use the triplspeed plus i got the big chainring that i was going to use the wheel ended up being a few clicks back. there for the brace didnt work and to be redone.

    here's a phone picture for now. i'm taking it to a bike show tomorrow and should get better pictures if i dont forget the camera!

    Had time to work on rear wheel set up. Drop stand had the ears and was not working for me. There was to many things installed on the axle with the ears, braces plus the rack. Was not leaving a lot of room for the nuts. Removed the drop stand ears and installed it on the holes on the frame. I also had to cut a piece of the rack leg so it wouldn't get on the way of the drop stand when in the down position.

    made these brass id plates. i'll probably end up using one. don't worry, i will not drill the frame. i'm thinking of a fake rivet with double sided tape to the chain stays. i think i made the right choice with the font but what you think?

    i found some plastic tabs on my tool box (i never throw anything away!)
    [​IMG]

    gave the plate a little curve to contour to the frame

    i figured that i was not going to get the flushed look with double sided tape so i used epoxy

    Thanks to all for the good comments and to those that just come by to take a look. I think its awesome that this build have over 3100+ views so far and it makes me a better creator!
