Yeah, me too. I have found 22" wheels easy enough, but I need a whitewall tire to match the rear. I haven't found one yet..........

wow! been almost a week since my last update. got a couple of things done.

got my sissy bars where i want them, used galvanized extenders. still have to drill em.

picked out some new seat material.

and added an extention to my seat, i needed it to be back farther.:happy:

this build has to be on the cheap for me this time. think ive spent 20-30 bucks so far. next is getting it ridable, then tear down for paint.

Looking well balanced so far. Like the sissy bar extensions and the fork...tire sizes look good too! Well on your way!

did some work on my sissy bar. the half inch sleeve fit nicely over both ends of the 2 pieces of bars, but that left the threads bare...and they are sharp! so i put some springs from a long skateboard on there. fit good. they don't do anything, but they look pretty cool:21:

This one is looking good. Like what you did with the sissy. Lots of muscle bikes came with fake suspension. Sissy bar suspension is nice though.

I've been working on a way to put my seat back farther as well. I like how you did yours.

i just wasn't feeling the "western fire" vibe. frame and parts/ class, will all stay the same. just changing the theme...

stay tuned....................................

after 2 days of solid rain (6" plus inches ) it was finally dry enough to paint.

apple red for the frame.

white for the forks, chainguard and chainring.


got the wheelset and tires started also.

hope to have the nanner seat done sometime this weekend.

Poor poor Husker fan. Why hire a mediocre Pac12 coach to replace a good Big 10 coach?

Edit: Why not hire Scott Frost and get the right guy there?

Looks like you had a nice day for painting! We had 55 degrees and sunny...with a wind. Paint would have dried in seconds....
Like the grips too!
