I'm done. I got back from vacation yesterday and this morning I chipped the ice out of the floor of my shop so I could get to the attic stairs. Got up in the attic, opened the hoist door to let in light and took these pictures of the finished bike. This is my 1960s hiking trail and two track bike, but like Lincoln's Hammer all the parts have been replaced so many times that nothing is original. It's a nostalgia piece.
At this point, I expect that this event will be yet another DNF for me. BUT, I made some real progress, which is better than what usually happens. The fact the I've managed to get wheels fitted to it is a minor miracle in itself. The ride will get done...eventually.
This is where I'm at. Life got busy and I didn't find a headbadge or something more inspired to use for a seat. I will probably just hang a chain on it and call it done unless I have some sort of brilliant inspiration in the next 24 hours.
I actually think it will make a great little scoot to throw in the trunk of a car on short notice. I definitely see myself running it at our Thursday night Retro-Rides and as a pit bike at the Carlisle swap meets...
