    I like where you're going and the idea of low handlebars, It would be nice to have them low without flipping them. Maybe a stem or bars with no rise?
    Whatever you choose I think the bars would look good black.

    Thanks Cameron & Randy! I will have to cut at least an inch or more off the steerer tube & I want to keep the bars as low as possible. I was thinking black chrome on the bars. Not sure if I will flip them or not yet. That set of bars came from the free pile at the Midwest Bicycle Swap Meet! :) Gotta love free stuff especially when it's cool.

    Got the bars & crank coated black chrome today. The bars on the top are chrome (& rust) for comparison. The grip is just there to help me decide what color grips I will use.

    YEP! They are long & very beefy! Very well made. I'm not sure if I am using them on this build or not yet.

    How did i miss my doppelganger's build this long? I guess i have been cruising the traditional build forum too long! We are using similar frames too, i'm rocking a 38 Huffman (that's what i bought it as, no good reason not to trust the seller)this is it so far>

    Brent: You are right, very similar frames. I really like what you have done with yours. 8) Thanks for lookin! Hope to have some progress made, but my son is getting married this coming weekend & I'm not sure how much time I will have to play with my toys. :lol:

    Re: BlackJacked ~~ Back in the Black!

    Thanks Cody! Last night I stripped the gloss black powder coat off the black pieces of the fork. Took a full hour. That gives you an idea how durable this stuff is. If it was just painted it would have taken 10 minutes. I didn't take a pic because it looks just like it did before only matte black instead of gloss. Also just got my "killer bomb proof seat post" I had slowriderz make for me (Thanks Chad!). Since it's been so long since I last posted here is the most recent pic before the forks were redone & this is not the new seat post.

    Assembly has begun. All parts are coated, now I just need to find some rear axle nuts that fit & I'm set. Pics to come in the next few days.
