    I am entering a build I started years ago and never finished.I want to use this WBO to get it done...
    The bike was almost complete,except for wheels and tires,handlebars...
    But I used the engine for Blue Arrow.
    So I need to invest in a engine,wheels,tires,handlebars,decals to finish.
    I am also going to do some changes.
    1- I am now going to go for a different tank,so I need to lower the bottom bar.
    2- The color I want it to be darker and looking like it stepped out of a barn from 1910.
    3- Maybe extend the front and rear stays to fit in 26"
    4- Decide where the bottom bracket will go (maybe back to the original position.)
    Something old n tatty like this...

    This is as far as I was 2 years ago...
    Wheels belong on my Electra Jeremy,nothing was mounted properly .This was th mock up.[​IMG]
    The original frame is a Monet Goyon a french bike...
    That would have looked like this in it's hey day... $(KGrHqZ,!h!E9onJjYqiBPpPuSErQQ~~60_12.jpg 300px-Monet_goyon_1.jpg
    The tank I am going to go with.it is flat and thin. The tank that i started out with doesnt suit the top bar... $(KGrHqVHJBUE8e4mjbCpBPKF!zGe4g~~60_12.jpg Hopefully it all fits in.

    Ha! I thought I was the only loafer...
    Cold here and I'm still sourcing parts.
    I play in paint.net and pull out stuff I already have
    for a pic now and then but mostly...
    feet up too. :p

    Update:::: Bike is still in the shed.
    But I have ordered parts and they are on the way...
    A 80cc engine kit.

    Decided to go with the project 346 in creme.Instead of the boa-G's .The tread is more authentic for the era.

    Well I pulled it out of storage for the first time in 2 years...Covered in dust and rat footprints.Paint chipped etc... DSCN3630.JPG with the tank i originally wanted.
    But I dont like the way the top bar is straight. DSCN3631.JPG Have 2 tank choices another torpedo style or the flat blue...Inputs welcome.
    I think the green is to short,the blue will be perfect.Also I dont need the bottom bar in... DSCN3633.JPG DSCN3634.JPG Notice a lot wrong with the bike,playing around with it yesterday.
    The front guard has to be lowered
    (I put it on wrong the first time:headbang:
    The rear wheel is just a mock up,but will be re-laced with a 3 gear hub and suicide shifter.
    I have to find a way so that the motor fits in with pedal clearance.The rear wheel brackets are so wide.So either I extend the axle or try to close the rear.
    (now thats a first,we all try to widen the rear not reduce):crazy:
    I wanted boa-g's for this bike so the wide rear was excellent,but found the 346's more authentic.
    Also I think I will lift the rear end,by welding the drop outs lower.I don't like the way it slants down at the back...
    Basically,it's back to the drawing board with this bike.
    WHAT WAS I THINKING:crazy::cry::headbang:

    How about this? Nothing has to change except the two top bars.
