    Here's the frame and fork as bought off eBay. Nice solid frame. I sold the standard fork and bought a Shockmaster springer for the project.

    Here's the setup after frame was powdercoated by Powdercoat Studios. I added the darts then took it to Lit'l Bill of Indianapolis for the red pinstripes. It's ready for the crankset to be fitted this weekend.

    The bike can be built up as soon as I get my front wheel (Felt Cruiser) from Motostrano. It's been back ordered two months.

    Rear wheel is built. Sturmey Archer three speed with coaster brake on Felt Cruiser rim.

    Where do you get your plating work done and approximately what sort of costs for things like stem , crankset and bars?

    Bike looks way nice. Hopefully mine will look as good some day.

    Bill, the handlebars, Lucky Seven seat post, seat post clamp, the chainring and four small parts for the springer were ~$250. I use Badger Plating in St. Francis, WI. The stem is a nice vintage one I picked up at a swap meet. It didn't need replating.

    another +1.
    the shape better complements the curves of the seat and chain stays IMO.
