    It's been far to long since I built a complete bike...
    Had lots of false starts with this one...
    I have completed 4 other Build Offs looking forward to finishing this one.
    This build won't be a Empty Promise..

    Pile of parts from 4 years ago...

    I have all this in a box... Just going to use Nexus 8 speed roller brake hubs instead..

    Thanks for looking!

    Liking that fork with the red springs. Is that powder coated? Those would go real swell with my planned build!

    Welcome back! Love those 50mm rims. They have such a smooth arc to them.
    Can't wait to see the Chicago skyline or some couches with this build.

    Sorry more lousy basement photos...
    Decided not to use the cool Monark fork not wide enough to fit the hub. And even with the coolness factor I didn't like the straight lines of the fork on the curvy frame...
    Ordered 12g spokes.
    Once the spokes come and I get the wheels built I really can figure out the fenders

    I do like the flow of the cheap knock off springer..

    These bars might even be too much for me... But they might just work.
    Thanks for looking.
