    Just catching up here.
    Love the black chrome a lot. Can't wait to see what paint scheme you have in store.
    Your attention to finish details is showing. This is gonna be a sweet hot rod.

    I like the flat tank. Reminds me of an old pub bike I saw down in New Orleans

    As I told you guys in an earlier post I sent the fork back to to powder coat shop . The gray was just to plain I didn't like it & my painter hated it he said he wouldn't do another frame for me if I didn't let him put his custom touch on it , I didn't argue . So we agreed to go with the root beer & cream soda paint scream . The fork is got some color on it and I love it . Can't wait to see the frame !!![​IMG][​IMG]
