    American Idiot (Glenstyle Stem/Bratstyle Bars & Seat)

    Thanks guys. Gary, I am going to need to talk to you about how to tdo the ornament tot the fender stub thing, sounds interesting. Think I am going to stick with this little seat and won't be needing the 7 post. I took it for a pretty long ride this weekend and it wasn't bad at all. Cheers!

    American Idiot (Glenstyle Stem/Bratstyle Bars & Seat)

    Re: American Idiot (Pics Fixed) For the front fender I fabbed a bracket and used this antique stove ornament. Kind of looks like a cowcatcher, but the pic doesn't do it justice.

    American Idiot (Glenstyle Stem/Bratstyle Bars & Seat)

    Re: American Idiot (Pics Fixed) Since I went with the upright bars, I decided to make it look like a Japanese Bratstyle Bobber. So I bought this little girl's bike seat for $1.50. The pink is kind of growing on me.

    American Idiot (Glenstyle Stem/Bratstyle Bars & Seat)

    Re: American Idiot So the boardtracker bar style on this little middleweight frame wasn't really working for rideability. I switched to some moped bars with a higher rise. Had to cut off off the BMX style cross brace. And since the diameter was too small for the stem, I shimmed them...

    When is there too Much Patina?

    It's your call, there are thousands of these frames around. If you like it shiny, then paint it. Personally, I'd leave it OG, but I tend to leave them all that way, even the rusty ones.

    Got a serial number - but can't find a serial number chart

    A pic will be more helpful than the serial number to ID this bike.

    26' RUSTY cruiser

    Very nice work! I particulary like the use of the Garelli Moto fork; I used to have a top tank Super Sport XL. Like the paint/rust work that you've done too. BTW, what is that taillight from?

    Re: American Idiot (Pics Fixed) Found a 4" dia. pipe hanger at Menards for $1.58 Only used about 1/4 of it to make a light bracket to hang off of the stem bolt. Added the pancake horn (another moped leftover) hanging off the bottom of the light. Also some upsidedown Torrington handlebars ($5...
