    D'stressing is looking good.

    With some amazing polished or machined options in anything goes, the look you are coming with is an encouragement to anyone starting out that seeing the potential result can be from a whole other direction.

    Probably not, but I'm going to wait and see when it's back together again what looks good and what doesn't.

    Not sure if I can get all this stuff to play nice together, but this Huffy ten speed chain ring looks at home with these hubs, don't you think?

    Nicer if I can get the second chain ring off without ruining it, but if it has to stay, no biggie...

    Home stretch, got the front fender on, working on lighting. It'll be there, just not sure if it'll be working. Running out of time:

    Couple minor updates and I'm done...leaving town and don't have a cool trailer to take my project with me like Luke, so into the finished forum it goes!


    Found the amber lights for the bars I originally intended to use, I wanted them to be turn signals:

    Made a tag to cover up the dent where the factory riveted the chain guard support. It says "Experimental".

    Found some cool bezels for the front headlight bulbs. They're actually shock bushings.
