    That's gonna be a nice riding frameset. Fork? Drivetrain? Looks good black.

    Where did I put the fork, (plain, no integral truss) - sanded it with 320 grit and now it needs more black primer, and I’m out of that one.

    Rust-Oleum gloss black last week and sanded 400 grit today. Was a bit heavy or too soon on the coats of paint on the frame as it still appears soft at drop outs.

    When I thought that the frame looked Davis, I planned for a #5 sprocket, but now I am reconsidering, but still likely single speed coaster brake, aluminum X202 Alex rims or similar.
