i will take some pics of my project tonight and post them. i decided to take the hard route and go with a middweight frame that i have been neglecting for years. this bike has some history with me it was the first bike that i started to restore when was 10. my grandfather found it at a yard sale for 35 bucks and gave it to me as i wanted a cruiser even at that young age. i took it apart cleaned everything as best i could then lost interest in it and sold it too a friend who never did anything to it for 4 years. i saw it hanging in his garage and bought it back taking pitty on the poor thing and did it right (or at least i thought at the time lol) bad paint job, sprayed silver cranks ect.... i rode it a lot till i moved to ny in 2000 and when i moved back two years ago i used some parts off it and she has sat since then. now i think this is the proper motivation to make her shine as the jewel i know is inside. pics to follow soon

due to a leg injury i doubt that i will be able to compleate the bike in time. at work a tool chest fell on my leg and although nothing was broken it severly pinched a nirve and i am done for awhile. i will try but i don't think it is going to happen.
