    I got pretty much everything but the seat ( still gotta build a seat post ) and a couple little details finished up today. Sprocket and chain all mounted up. Thought I'd show a pic of the paint on back side of chain guard .
    Also removed the yellow decals on the Spinergy wheels. Guess the rims are faded because it left a darker ghost writing where the decals were. I think it's pretty cool. Think I'm gonna let the air out of tires and line up the writing on the tires with that on the rims. I'd rather have no writing at all but hate to ruin the tires trying to get it off.
    Oh, and since the kickstand mount was cut off this frame when i got it I picked up a bolt on one. (Still gotta make it satin black )
    One week to go and I think I'm gonna make it....

    20150727_195937.jpg My wife got me this Scwhinn 27.5 cruiser for my birthday today.
    She said the one I'm building is too nice to ride all the time and that with me being 6'2" fits me better. Pretty cool

    Love the way you detailed the inside of the chain guard. Really like the wheels with the paint job too.

    I was able to get my head badge painted while out on the road this week. I painted the lines on the badge to go along with the tank. 20150731_151952.jpg 20150731_160641.jpg
    I fabbed up my seat post using the stock 13/16 post and a doner 7/8 post. Sorry for lack of photos on the fab part but time was short and I was preoccupied trying to get it done. I didn't want a weak post so I added a gusset. Due to the pitbull brake setup I'm using I decided the best way for it to work was to run it through the seat post. I welded a washer for the hole in the front and made a slot in the bottom gusset. I mounted the oddesy seat clamp in the end of the post to make a moderny / hi-tech (lol) lookin' seat post.

    A couple little details and it's finished photo time.. So glad it's done. I was sweating it for this last week. I have to go out of town this weekend. Leaving in the morning, so if I wasn't able to finish up during the week while traveling it wouldn't have gotten finished.

    Off with the Wife and the bike for some final photos before leaving in the a.m. 20150729_193444.jpg 20150731_152031.jpg 20150731_152209.jpg

    Love the work on the badge and seatpost! They really suit the hightech nature of the build!
