Very slick bike! Finding those big sprockets is easy, making them work with the frame and finding a chain guard that looks right is the hard part. Yours look awesome! Really like the color scheme plus I am a huge fan of Hank B's.

Thanks. I wasn't even considering the sprocket until Missing Link suggested it. Good Call, sir. I had been trying to get that guard to fit on my Silver King, but I decided to hold out for something more "correct".
As for the Hanks, I got them from yeshoney. And while on the subject, I got the triple tree forks on a trade from Kingfish254.
