    Got the wheels laced and all together with stainless steel spokes (268mm). Painted the rims Rust-o-leum semi gloss black. Had to use a Schwinn front hub cause the stock one was a little old. Cleaned up the Hawthorne hub with 0000 fine steel wool. With tires mounted.

    Well Kev I have decided to go with Black on the stripes. The red and green would look awesome but I dont have any other colors on my bike and not sure it would look right. Plus i don't want it to be too blingy if you know what I mean. I really had to think long and hard on this too. I am prolly going to stripe it in the next week or so and get a pic up too. Thanks, Troy

    Got my bars painted yesterday. They are the same color as the frame. I put a white stripe on the bars to flow with the rest of the bike. They will get pinstriped in black like the tank.

    Painted the stem Semi-gloss black like the rims. Was too rusty to save.

    I went with Adam Banton grips and I will cut the flanges off. They have Stratacastors in them to go with my hot rod theme. Rockabilly!!!

    My second favorite beer "Tall blonde" makes a great breakfast beer. Great progress on handle bars- the stripes look great.
