After seeing this pic I'm thinking banana seat laid low and rams horn bars,shoot I'd even ride it.My initial plan was to run a layback post, (thus the name) but I don't think my current bars or apes are the right fit, and I just missed that sweet banana that sloar had. The colors would've been perfect! I'm thinking some "D" bars are in order here. My cheapo tires came in today and I HAD to do a mock-up. I'm liking how it's coming out.
I'd apply the boiled linseed oil at this point....awesome build BTW.
Watch the chain line with that tire (don't ask), you may need to flip the rear sprocket (assuming it's dished)
Keep building brother!

Run a split lengthwise down the straw and slip it over the spoke without disassembling the wheel, the straw will actually tighten up in size once it is split...Ooo, forgot to check the chain line, Thx! It's a coaster brake, so I don't think there'll be any flipping, I'll need to get creative!
Painting the rims & spokes this w/e... Have a very ambitious goal to paint the nipples a contrasting color (blk). I read about the straws over the spokes trick, any suggestions on how to accomplish this without disassembly? (The thought did occur to just replace them with black nipples!) I was thinking to tape the straws at the nipple and mask the rim as best I can...then mask the nipples and spray the rims/spokes. Or I may tear it all apart... I'll see how I feel
I know what you mean by the intimidating factor on some of the other builds, but just bring your strong point and creativity and go nuts!
THIS is why I didn't wanna get mixed up with you characters!!!
1:32AM/6.5 beers (NOT miller lite!!) and I'm considering suspension!?!?
