    Thanks! It's all little details now bro.
    If I can get my suicide disc brake done I'll be really happy...

    It seems it is always the details that take the longest... They don't usually, but they seem that way... :crazy2:

    It's a good ride now, there are bits that won't make the deadline but will make the bike eventually. Instead of rushing and botching up the front disc, I'm waiting til I have the cash to purchase the adapter I need. I'd also love to run a better fork than the OCC, and the seat should probably be black. Yet, I'm really happy with it. It really is the first bike I've ever built! Oh I've painted a couple and swapped some parts, but I pulled out the welder after 20+ yrs, and fabbed a frame from two different bikes! This was a lot of fun and hooked me on bikes again. I'll get pics posted soon...

    Carl.

    I used the chain guard from my daisey tandem, the light from my 36' CWC, and tossed in a weasel for good measure... The bars from Crash with the striped wrap just set it off I think. Headbanger is a fixie right now too, the stock freewheel gear had too many teeth. Nice for parades but a muscle bike should roll. It has a quick feel to it now but fixie without toe clips on the pedals can be tricky. I really think a bike should continue to evolve, but this is where it's at right now. Down the road there will be more.

    Carl.
