    A couple of days ago I saw this up close at one of my favorite Bike shops and it might be a considerable investment

    I like the longer chain guard and a disc brakes on a new Rat FInk, but honestly i like older chain ring and cranks more then newer ones.

    Just got back from a weekend in SD with the Courier, Betty and Flying Sue, the girls looked good on their bike for sure! The only hitch was a low front tire after lunch with the Courier that required a little downhill walking. Got some air and then loaded up that rack with groceries, booze and charcoal....now back to reality....

    Did the 3g forks fit with no modification?

    5090E341-EE5E-49D0-886B-DD6F7771C62A.jpeg Blew the Peace bike apart a few weeks ago and dropped everything (fork not pictured) for paint on Friday. Already got the hoops back from powdercoat and working on re-lacing them. I’m afraid a GIRL bike might be the coolest one in my stable! It's nice starting with a clean complete bike where I don't have to source and buy a lot of parts. Already have the saddle I'm gonna use, just gotta buy whitewalls, grips, a bell, and lights. It'll also get the cool fork struts that came off the recent Red Betty purchase, and probably a chrome rear rack. Stay tuned....

    Just finished building a Electra Cruiser1 i got last summer. It was all beated up and rusty. Did some magic and address fat franks. Came out quite good I think. Here it is with my Straight8.

    Not that i want to disappoint you, but that is not Electra. It is made by Hyper Bike Co, as stated on the chain-stay. I have never seen one like that here in Europe, but internet sources the photos of that bike to the web site of... Walmart.
    Anyways, the bike looks nice, and if it is also a great rider as you said above, i think it makes it a great canvas for a new project! :)

Not done yet but almost there...just a before and after (after and before, the way the pics loaded haha) shot for now. Just gotta add the chainguard (painter forgot it) and emblems, then take it up to Parker AZ to see Jimmy C for the pinstripe treatment. More to come if anyone is interested....
