Since this build is going SO SLOW, and I have no real end-product in mind, I have decided to change my entry bike for category #2. I will continue to progress with the Elgin, but it will take a lot longer than this build-off permits. Going to build it for my wife since this is the only bike she has shown any interest. Since my category #1 build bike (Homemade Shine) is very shiny, I am going to build another shiny bike to carry on the same theme in category #2. I have not completely decided on all of the particulars, but I have a basic idea of what I want the finished product to look like. Here is my new starting point: A late '36-early '37 Monark Silver King with a Monark-style springer fork. Still working on a name for this bike.
