    Well it was close, but I got 'er done! Features include Skinny 26x1 3/8 tires, olar powered lights with the wiring inside the frame, a Girvin 1 1/8" fork in a 1 inch headtube (still don't know how I managed that!) and a really cool brass bell. 8)

    Looks like a very comfortable bike.
    Love the matte finish on the parts.
    Well done.

    Great job 'C! :D

    Be careful tho. :shock:

    I think that fork is cursed. Seems those who have it befall a dreadful circumstance.

    I bet if you place the bike on the right side of tha garage at night, when you wake up, it'll have moved to the left side!! :shock:

    Congrats!
