    Yes, probably a vintage leather seat and undecided on handlebars just yet.

    Love this build! The tire color works really well in contrast against the aluminum.

The bars seem to be an older mountain bike type but has some custom pinstripes already on there, what a Bonus!

    Check with @ifitsfreeitsforme , Thompson Grips. He makes a great coke bottle grip that would look cool on your build. Two colors of a brick like red, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks OddJob...
    My new grey ball end grips might look good on that too.

    Yes, I have purchased a few:)
    I think the ones on my JCH were one of your first series of the Red Dye?

    The Wife got me this 70’s Tote for Fathers Day and been riding and enjoying it since!

    Are you still considering fenders for the SK?

    I may still add fenders but really tight fit.

In my guess it’s been a long time coming! 2-Speed Kickback works Great! I especially needed it going up a few grades in my neighborhood!

    I just realized I could mount a rear fender on the rear drop down stand arms and when parked it can display a full open rear tire and on the go coverage where needed...

So it got me thinking on ride back home as it probably looks New to that younger person, so I thought to add some older, patina parts to it, I personally thought it took away from the design integrity of the SK, what do you all think?
    Here’s a trial with an X53 chainguard, Thanks.
