    Kota, thanks appreciate it. Our drinking water has been replaced with Vodka straight from the tap.

    There's just so much "wicked coolness" going on here! I haven't been this fascinated with a build in a long time.

    This build is really taking on an identity all it's own; and that's hard to achieve in this very creative environment of builders! I'm liking your direction and the bike is coming together nicely.:thumbsup:

    Finally decided on this double leg stand. Will finish the other leg, when I find the matching spring. IMG_20170604_141714.jpg

    KF, you know a thing or two about details. The devil is always egging us on. I am trying to join a 12 step program to manage my dodads addiction.

    Okay, tried the seat with the seat post mounted. Gonna call it good for the saddle. IMG_20170609_085802.jpg IMG_20170609_092439.jpg IMG_20170609_163439.jpg

    Doesn't look too comfy but who knows, I have a bare spring seat that's real nice to sit on.

    It is not that comfortable. However, it fits the flow of the build. I have a Brooks leather seat with copper rails; tried on the bike and did not work with the spirit of the build. Let's face it, a lot of the unconventional things we do in our builds are not always functional.
