Maybe try making the seat post and sissy bar parallel...? Other than that, quickie or not, this looks super.

this is just not my buildoff with everything that's happened the last couple months then having to put Bare Bomber on the back burner, thought throw together this bike with the frame change to still have some fun, well..... never noticed this until I had it sitting where I walked directly behind it walking in the door today What:mad::eek::mad:
frame is bent its kicked well over more than 1"++ off center why I didn't notice it before who knows, not sure I even want to mess with it at this point :headbang: :headbang:

Is it the frame or is the wheel dished to one side? Try flipping the wheel around and see if it's the same. If it's the frame try to straighten it using the Sheldon Brown method. May not be hard to fix.

If it will ride with a chain on it, don't worry about it being cattywhompus. Straighten it some other day.
I don't think a chain will stay on as far out of whack it is.

Is the frame, bent just behind the seat post. I will look up the Sheldon Brown method.

had just a little time today I wanted use the front fender but just to close with the wheel size so I went back to flipping the front. the red seat came in today and it sucks should have known better for 20 bucks just going to go with the black one I have and paint the green strip red maybe little foam and black tape on front?? remember doing that back in the day but hey its a rat. once I get seat mounted where I want it more than likely going to have to extend the bars 4+ inches grips are barely on now to show.

Is that a rib cage or a laser beam?
:D

got some done today, I don't know what thread is on these older stems but nothing matched it so had to go to plan B. not thrilled with a nut underneath but so it goes.

really liked the green worn on the seat with the spotty black shown thru but needed to be red.

I was going to paint but had a beer and thought how I could keep the black coming thru like the green hauled out the red sharpie did only 1/2x1/4" or so at a time and then wiped it down right away with a rag to get rid of the sharpie lines and it also dulled it!

also threw this on the back old porcelain piece, serves as the fender brace also need to get a brighter pic.
