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!

Great job and good luck in the home stretch. It looks like the little state of CT. put up a pretty good showing in this build!

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

here's the video:

and here are some pics:






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.
