Yes, probably a vintage leather seat and undecided on handlebars just yet.
Agreed... pinstriping would look nice
Pedals on, now gotta figure out upper section of build.
Perfect fitment with those tires!
Love this build! The tire color works really well in contrast against the aluminum.
Ok, I think I’m gonna try to mount this Chain Guard and use these bars and neck on my QU14K SILVER build, will see if I like it once mocked-up. The bars seem to be an older mountain bike type but has some custom pinstripes already on there, what a Bonus!
I Like It!
Bummer! It Didn’t fit, Diameter of Chainring too big, I would have to change it out.
I do like the neck and bars for use, looks like I got 2 of 3 options for today! Maybe some Nice Old RED Grips or Aged Red Leather wrap?
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.
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?
Now that all the Graduations and Graduation Party’s are over, time to get back at it!
I’m thinking adding a rear rack but not certain what type yet, maybe this one?
I thought I would get some build time over the weekend but been enjoying the nice weather out here in NorCAL!
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.
Good seeing another SK in the build off, looking forward to where you go with this!
QU14K-SILVER saw the Road first time today! 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...
Got some great comments riding today but also concerning when a younger person commented nice Fixie! 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.
