    VERY nice build, this bike makes an impression the second you see it! I have a chrome spaceliner and they are hard to customize and look right. Seems like every part I put on is removed the next day. Good luck!

    Took DevilWing out for a cruise on the Farmington Canal Trail. Finally got some riding pics and video:

    here's the video:

    It was a good ride. However, one snag. The left pedal disintegrated about a mile into the ride:

    I just put the pieces in my pocket and rode another dozen miles on just the spindle.

    I have to replace the pedals already but I am looking forward to putting dozens, hundreds, thousands more miles on this thing.

    I was having a hard time trying to get the broken pedal back together, and I wanted to take the bike for a ride with a working pedal and not just a spindle, so I found a replacement with the pedals I pulled off the girl's higgins I am working on. This pedal spins smoothly.

    I kinda like the way it looks. Now the question is whether to replace the left pedal with the matching one, or to leave them mis-matched.

    There's a long story about what happened to this bike after I sold it to Skip. It was in a hurricane on Cape Cod, then looted from the storm-destroyed house, then found randomly being ridden around in New Haven. They were able to get it back and I guess it's been handed around between the New England Rat Rodders.
