Alright, just about done highjacking my own thread with meat pics...But I found another shot of the trailer with a small porchetta I did for our town parade last year...Rode 3-4 miles or so towing this little piggy ;)
(Enlisted a couple dudes with tow straps to help on the hills..)

Back to bike updates...
Hand cut some lettering for my seat tube.
I was going to have my buddy cut some font for this project but decided I'd rather have it look more hand done.

Bracket.
Dual purpose here.. Really wanted to add this small light, and I lost the washer for the head set...

Getting down to the last few things:
Get the headlight lit up.
A little more rust on the expanded metal.
Clean up the whitewalls.
Take some cool pics and video!

Bike is really cool! I wonder if lower headlight is upside down tho. Maybe the lens that used to light up a licence plate should be at the bottom facing the front fender?
