That is COOL!
Initial mock up. 65T chainring, and rust colored wheels. I've still got plenty of little touches to do before I paint.
This is a wild cool tide.

Watznu withca build!!!!
You mock up is very cool and I see you have a very cool hood ornament in a place that I am considering, but probably won't use.
We need an update on this very cool build, so you get the "Leaping Hare" hood ornament back page bump tonight.
I've been working on it these last couple of days, and the bike is now almost complete. I've just got one more touch, then I'll be taking and posting some pictures.
And while you were commenting about the hood ornament, I was commenting about yours. At the exact some time!
A taste of the rust/metallic black color scheme.
Cool hoodie brotha!!!
Nice sneak peek, look forward to more!!!
Looks great! More pics!
I finished the paint, and assembled most of the bike.
The colors used were rust colored primer, and then the frame got a coat of metallic black. I then used a Duplicolor metallic clear coat on top of it. You can't tell from these photos, but the black really gleams. It makes for a great contrast against the flat rust of all of the parts.
This shot in the sunlight is my attempt to show the metallic gleam.
On the "tank," I have these "DeVille" signs that I'll be putting on each side.
I've got a lot of car/motorcycle parts on here. The hood ornament and the "DeVille" signs are from old cars, and the headlight, the taillight, the horn, the grips, and the saddlebag are motorcycle parts.
I still need to make a kickstand, and I need to finish wiring the lights. I'm not sure I'll wire the horn, and I'm not sure any of it will work on only six volts, but we'll see.
