Don't worry about a full bleach white on the tires, some natural 'aging' will complement those shiny rims!

This is the stem I’m using. Polished it up and slid it on the bars.

Brooks leather grips. Leave it to the brits to take something so simple and make it 30 pieces. I counted the parts on my seat before I hacked it up. 35 parts! Anyway, I think they look cool. And definitely fit my euro/deco/rat theme.

Mounted it all up. Really liking the look so far.

Back to the Brooks seat. After I cut out the front spring I used an old fender bracket but it just didn’t look right.

I brought the seat to my buddy Dave at Engle Bro’s Fabrication and he made quick work of the situation. Welded the two main parts together and welded a mounting bolt in place as well. I stared at it for an hour and he had it done in 10 minutes.
