Well, the sky turned an evil green, the winds picked up, first came the ice then the rain. The swap was over before it started. Glad I didn't venture out.

On another note, I spotted this on the wall of a building around the corner from my sons' new/ old house. I know @franconuevo is a big fan.....probably others here too....

Hmmm had a thought just now... If you Don't want to cover the headbadge, could put truss rods on and mount the light a bit further forward on the fender in front of them..

All this, including the patronage to the Purple One, could only happen in Minnesota my friend. We escaped with only a few downed limbs, no house or vehicle damage. Others, not so fortunate.

The tribute art is in the Uptown part of Minneapolis where my sons have recently moved to. Fascinating area of food spots, entertainment, beautiful lakes, and the art; oh the art.

OK, I get you I drove thru Minn. ..once..(this has nothing to do with the purp one BTW)..just during one of my long rides..LOL.... went southernmost to Northernmost, I think it's the most northerly state in the U.S. No? It's beautiful out there..all of those Ice Age states are for some reason.

As far as the fender mount..bar mount..tough call..but.. as I ask myself whenever I'm in a 'quandry' about well, anything...."What would Joe Biden do? ":43:

Okay. No more fish tales...let's GTB!

Spent my Sunday morning in the BACK40. You know the old saying, God would rather have me sitting in the BACK40 building bikes and thinking about God; than sitting in church thinking about building bikes in the BACK40! :bigsmile:

Headlight is mounted! I kind of went against the grain of the voting public, but I ended up with a 'low slung' stem mount. It got the light up a bit so I can still appreciate that cool brass head badge, but not too high.

Really like how it turned out. Now I'm thinking about something to spruce up the 'rear' of the bike.....:cool2:

I think you got the light just right....nice fishing trip!!
Perfect !
That looks really good there. Bike looks awesome.

Thanks guys!

I took a few laps on it this morning, and it's solid with no rattles. If I could come up with a cool rear light, I think I might be down to the wire on finishing this build.

My first time at Lake of the Woods. Think of another of the 'great lakes'...it's that big! Wall-to-wall-walleye! It's got a unique kind of appeal. Wasn't a big fan of the 4 foot waves for 6 hours a day. But the catching and eating of the fish was awesome!
