This thing is classy :41:
Coming from a creative young man I’m proud to read your comment, thanks!
I'm digging the rear trusses, but even though they had optional racks, the rack takes away from the build and the flow of things in my opinion. It reminds me of when I see racks under banana seats.
Yah KF, racks always seem to be the kids of death in this forum. I’m just amazed that the rack and rods meshed together without any interference.
Thinking about it, I do sorta have a banana seat. The leather is basically hanging loose between the front and rear brackets. If I keep it it will need some cross cording like the more expensive Brooks saddles. I was thinking if I leave the rear tension rods silver and the rack black they might work together visually and compliment each other.
I appreciate your critique and interest.
You pay amazing attention to detail. Each time I look, I see another sweet little detail. Nice work!
I’m probably anal retentive in regards to details. It comes from years of teaching, architectural design and detailing along with writing architectural specifications. I’m glad you are noticing the details, thank you.
This is awkwardly cool to me, I dig it!

It is an awkward looking bike. To me that is the appeal. It’s different from the frames we are programmed to usually see. Somewhat like evolution in reverse but somewhat mimics chopper bikes. Thank you sir!

This graphic somewhat mirrors my bike experience over the years.

It looks a LOT like the picture. Really cool bike!

Thanks for the props, my goal has been to try to stay somewhat true to the original look. It has an interesting ride. I’m liking it, guess that’s what it all about. Rat on!

Got to thinking...not sure I’ve ever seen banana seat bike with a rack. Maybe someone can enlighten me?
