    Musical instruments and bicycles and rust... Very mid-punk vibe.

    Mockup of Handle bar & grip design. Made the grips from some machine bits out of the red tool box. Will do the same deep chocolate finish as the forks. IMG_20170506_123531.jpg IMG_20170506_123114.jpg IMG_20170506_123335.jpg

    IMG_20170507_181403.jpg Took a break from the build. Traded 3 steampunk lamps I made for this 40's Art Deco Stroller. I can't wait to diesel punk it once the build is complete.

    Adding a little detail: Filled in the first tube; the Medieval weld by JB. IMG_20170510_073300.jpg IMG_20170510_074617.jpg
    No, the second pic is not a gun handle; the chainguard is done.

    It's taking on a wonderful steampunk vibe. You'll need some cool vintage goggles when you ride.

    Ain't feeling the fenders for this build. Will be making more in keeping with the direction this build is going.

    So this pair will go into storage for another day. IMG_20170501_165539.jpg

    I am going to use 2 pairs of old skinny rims to fabricate my front rear fenders that will tie in with my "Tank". Will post pics of this weekend's progress later

    Dude, you're cranking out some fun stuff right out of the gate and having fun too! I really dig the handlebar sleeving.

    Starting to see too much shiny bits. Used the rotary deburr bit & took the shine off the exposed handgrips base.
