Done for now. Missing a lot of the original Corvette pieces but kept the namesake branding. Might add a front rack down the road or a rear.

Nice! And the hammered powder coat should wear like iron! I haven't tried the Continental Retro tires, any opinion on how they ride?

A beautiful looking bike!!!
Thank you!

Thanks! They aren't real wide 2.0" if I remember correctly. They seem to ride real smoothly. I like the look, had planned on using some 2.4" black walls until I ran across the Conti's.

Adding middleweight chrome fenders. Put the front on, seems to fit well.

I really like where this is going!
The tire choice looks good. Powder coat very unique. Looking forward to seeing more! :)
Thanks! I added fenders today, need to do some photos. I had the bike at the Midwest Bike Fest, might take it to show and swap in Augusta on the 18th. Bring your stuff.

Fenders hug the 2.0" tires pretty well. No rattles yet.

Hey thanks! I don't know about another build yet. Need to downsize first or find a project that talks to me.

Teardrop rear reflector arrived today. Next time it gets up to 40 I'll mount it up. Setting here thinking it could use an LED.
