    Re-routing chain

    Thanks. It looks pretty cool in there, I think... I just wanted some feedback before I start taking apart 10 speeds. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk

    Re-routing chain

    Has anybody tried this to change your chainline? I switched the wheels on my BONINE build "The Graverobber", and now I have rubbing issues in my chain line. The ring stays in place when I pedal it, but, I still need to go bigger. I just want to know if anybody has tried this, and have you had...

    We used seamless paper in my wife's studio. it goes from the ceiling out to about 8 feet from the wall on the floor. It was like 110" wide or something, so just the edges were blended out and then the vignette added. I wanted the bike to be the star, not the background. I was inspired by The...

    Las Ditch F-4T

    **Friday** Brought home some steel wool. I worked the paint a bit to make it match the rest of the bike a bit more. I used some more purse parts to mount a dual horn setup as well. I got a late start, then, I had an issue with the fringes on the seat. I hopefully have that solved. I think...

    Dried quickly, and put it back together. I can't find my steel wool, so, aging will have to wait until tomorrow. I needed to find a reflector for the back of the rack...that was becoming a chore on short notice. Until, that is, I found this sweet, vintage toy gun holster! How sweet is that...

    Thanks for the good vibes, everyone! **Thursday** Time to tie in those pistachio rims a bit more. Mixed up some matching paint at work today. Got it all masked off and prepped. Tried a few new things with this one. First, I didn't want to have to work the rust around the tank rot too much, so...

    **Wednesday** Seat time. My wife was just throwing away this purse! Can you believe it?? I'm calling this seat "The Calvin" after my mullet-ed coworker. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk

    **Tuesday** The chain guard was a great addition. But, it needed something more... I didn't want to add fenders, I was digging the look I had going. But, it needed something behind the seat. I had a rear rack off an old Elgin that I decided would be a good fit... It was just begging for a...

    **Monday** I removed the original crank and added the wheels, tires, chain and crank that were intended for the Dead Sled...she was already a rider! Then, I remembered the Packard chain guard that I had been saving! It was grey primer, and it just wouldn't do. I hit it with a good coat of red...
