Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
Man I love this build. One of my major influences is Mad Max and this things just screams Road Warrior!

Interesting! I never expected a nana seat on this one. More More More!!!!
of all the seats i had it seemed to work the best. my sticking point was the sissy bar mount. i didnt want to weld it to the frame just yet. There is a rear derailleur and a disc all of which work off of the rear axle. there is a lot going on down there and i needed it to be clean and i wanted it to be functional. i got a hig and low setting and 6 " of fore and aft adjustment.
i have spent way too long on some things.
I really like the sissy bar. However, why is it requisite to include the bananna seat? I know this is the prevailing trend right now; "nanna" seats are all the rage. I just think the ride looks right with the Brooks & the Sissy Bar. Okay, now you can throw eggs, boo & hiss!
This is still one heckva' build, nanna seat or not.
It was a matter of what looked best that I had. The Brooks was the easiest choice for function and simplicity, but looked lost on there. If only it was a little bigger.
I tried 3 bananas and the green looked best. The size is right for the bike and the color pops
Well so much for my tirade on nanna seats. The green nanna & orange sissy bar really do complete the style.
Can't wait to see this build in the completed section to take it all in.
As JakeSensi said, "...there goes another of my votes".
Excellent job on the sissy bar! It totally flows with the sweeping lines of this bike.
I hope your 5 speed drum wheel works out. I have one of those on a Spitfire II that I want to rat out.
