Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
I have moved my build operation into the garage until it gets real hot then I will be moving back downstairs. Bike is looking good.

Looking awesome so far, can't wait to see it finished!
Those little short throw shifters work great with the nexus, but when you take them apart for paint, pay close attention to the sequence of all those little brass washers and how many were on each side of the plastic cover! Just TRUST me on this, it won't shift if you have them wrong
WOW I wish you had posted that earlier I spent last night taking the shifter apart and then back together for over an hour LOL. It was either to loose or to tight to shift butt I finally got it it shifts perfect
Been THERE! Sorry I didn't see this until today. If you extend the handle, the plastic "nut" in the center will loosen (vibration) too and throw off the shift pattern
Keep it short and check it often
still working on the corner in my basement to be my new work place so didnt get much done this weekend..I did a mock up with the shifter and JC Higgins sighn (with zip ties for now) and it still needed something so i found some fenders to fit the 3" tires and just sat them on and i like it so this week i will paint them the brown and off white colors of the chain guard
