when I first read a Nanner seat my first thought was NO don't do it..... then seen the pics, I Like it!!
I thought the same thing, but it really helps to balance those huge bars! It's undeniably a Kingfish build now!

Had a great day riding around on my bike today.
Johnny Mercer seemed to like SaltHammer.

Almost forgot about adding this little detail to SaltHammer . You have to have a stopwatch for a Salt Flats speed run. I used a bike bell clamp and screwed some washers to it and attached the old stopwatch with some 3M tape.

I am done with SaltHammer. Been riding it taking photos for the past couple of days. I still have sorted through them, but here is a walkaround video I took today in Forsyth Park.

Still sorting through my pics. I really like how this one turned out on Pulaski Square. I love how these giant oak trees create covered rooms out of the squares.

LOL, I'll be in the Finished section in time. We have until tomorrow night and I am having too much fun running through the pics I have been taking the past couple of days. It's been quite an adventure and not all of it has been in downtown Savannah. I have a special guest in some of the shots that I took at Fort Pulaski.

Looks great King Fish!
Thanks man. This was a very fun build even though I had a broken frame halfway through and had to start over.

I love the bars that @karfer67 made for me. They get as much attention as the Moon discs do.

I'm really surprised how well the meshing of the 30s headlight with the top of the chrome seltzer bottle and a tractor light trim ring turned out. Also check out the transformation of the headtube between the first two pics.

Awesome build! Always love watching the kingfish process unfold. Bike looks super cool. Love the little salt shaker caps on the tank and is that a St Christopher medal on the bars?

Thanks man. I got a kick out of adding the salt shaker caps too. They were silver so they polished up too.

Good eye, that is a St Chistopher's Medal on the bars.
