    Looking awesome!
    It is probably hiding with my missing chrome bolts...

    I saw you painting. And then you kept painting. And painting. Wow! Nice work.
    And to think you were going to bag the whole deal.....

    Thanks guys.
    The paint job was tedious, very glad I didn't attempt the flames I was originally thinking.


    Still haven't found my chain, I'll spend a couple more hours looking before I settle on something else.

    I like tbe chrome showing. More 'muscley' looking. Mural looks like a tattoo...which only adds to the cool factor!

    Per previous convos, they just keep getting better. :thumbsup: Just noticed, did you change the spring since the 'episode'? Looks longer, different mounting position. And, how's she ride now?

    I only changed the mounting clamp, originally I had a metal conduit hanger. I replaced it with a rubber pipe hanger.
    Spring is the same one, mounting point might be different. I just put it where it looked good.

    It rides fine except going up any kind of incline sucks.

    You and me both, major struggle with this one for some reason.
    I'll need to get a pic of it, but this thing is longer than my car is wide.

    Sometimes that happens, I can relate, nearly walked away from the whole bike building thing a couple of times recently...

    I'm willing to bet I'm not the only one that's glad you didn't.
