    So far..
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Punch list:
    Wheelie bars
    Recover seat
    Shifter
    There's a little more, the lights need wired, gotta fit a rear reflector, maybe a license plate and I hate the grips I have although they match the fork. But I doubt I get the lights or the shifter done... It rides easy though probably spend all its time in third gear anyway.

    Tomorrow I'll be looking for some white frosted green fur... May hit the LBS for some grips too.

    I kept the frame, rear fender, skiptooth sprocket, chain, chain guard and Carlisle back tire...
    I used Occ forks, laced a Shimano 3 speed coaster to a 20" rim and got a skippy cog for it. Twin Schwinn headlights, apes, crank and chromed kickstand from a 26" bike and an old 1.75 front tire and rim round it out. I liberated the seat and sissy from Psycledelic adding a chromed post.

    New grips and a seat recover will be cool. Scoured the area tonight and came up empty but I've got a couple more ideas as far as the seat covering. Wishing for some sunlight so I can get the paint to pop in the photos. Thanks!

    Carl.

    That green shag has a bit of a shine to it. Should look pretty good on there.
