    Cool! Welcome aboard!
    What plans do you have aside from the obligatory Banana seat and Apes?

    Got the nanner on today I had to shorten my sissy bar to get it to look how I wanted. It turned out pretty decent for not having a tube bender.

    Are hangers went on today. Next step is wheels and drive train. Then I'll figure out how to lower it and tear down to paint.

    Slammed seat on a big frame always looks good. Should be a comfy ride.

    I kinda of want to shave the top of the seat tube down to lower the front of the seat to bring it a bit closer to the frame, but i really like the angle it's at. I'll have to lower the bike before I make that choice though.

    Will you still have pedal clearance to the road?

    I should. If not though I'll have no problem swapping in a short crank.

    I still need to get a rear wheel and peddles, reattach the chain guard and I think I might be done. I'm sure there's a few odds and ends that I'll need to do as well.

    Looking good! That stretch has nice proportions!
