Waaah! That is really cool.
I tried being serious, but it was boring.
Very nice... And the pics with the snow in the background really pull the white details out of the bike. Everybody has their opinions of what could have been done differently, and every time I look at the bike, I can't help but imagine a straight tube coming across horizontally under that curved top tube, and the bike having a tank....
I greatly appreciate the positive feedback on this project! I was fortunate enough to get a couple of nights to take it out on the road before the snow and cold. It's smooth, comfotable, and it's pretty fast for a single speed. I'm in love with this bike and I'm extrmemly proud of the end result. Thanks again!
P.S. I plan on taking some more pics when I get another sunny day
The frame really came out nice, I like the stance, the color and stripes! Gives me some inspiration.

Bleh...winter finally came. I've got this parked in the garage next to my Flightliner and Stingray (the other two bikes I've built/aquired and haven't got to enjoy yet) and every night I go out and visit and long for just one more day of clear road to sneak out for a ride. This one's got me hooked! lol
That's a stylin' bike! Lots of interesting details. Nice Job!
The roads are melted off...supposed to be 49 and sunny Saturday....sounds like a recipe for a ride!
Made a few minor changes over the last year. Ditched the cylinder bag for a wwII ammo pouch then had to use a different mount for the headlight to clear the taller storage unit. Put a Chicago Schwinn head badge on it as well.
The bolt to lock the crankset failed on me THAT was a fun experience, so I switched to a hardened clevis pin with a steel sleeve between the crank arm and chain ring...so far, so good
Other than that, it's the same creature and I LOVE it!
