Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Awesome detail everywhere on this bike. I love the slight rearward bend that the tip of the sissy bar makes. The bullet tips on the ends of the sissy bar are incredible too, especially since they do double duty as the captive nut to hold it all together. You are one talented girl! Oh, and bike dads rule too.
Kind words indeed . . . thanks folks!
I had some time on my lunch break to tinker, so I put a chunk of 3/8' aluminum rod in the lathe and whittled these.
the stand-offs will space the sissy bar away from the dropouts like so . . .
Now we can work on getting the fender mounted properly!
I got to check a box!
And with that, I will return updating duties to my daughter.

My hat is off to you, EXCELLENT work. a MILLION times better than Schwinn's original design.
It doesn't matter what I paid for it, it matters what it's WORTH. I never buy anything I will regret KEEPING.
Steve thanks for putting this on the front page. I love this!!!
So many nice touches on this bike. I am envious of the time you two are spending together. I need to get working with Boy on his bike(s) again. Thanks for the inspiration!
