Nothing Beats Hands-On Builds. Had to make it a rolling bike to get some inspiration with Real Build vs Electronic Build.
Never a dull moment with nicks and scratches and fingers hurting from turning the metal bolts. The Touch and Feel of Steal, Rust and Dust!

Here is what I've assembled thus far, enjoy.


Tell me about the interesting crank / chain ring assembly and the rear rack, I've never seen those before....new to the game. I like the look!

Take-A-Seat! I think I'm going with the middle choice here.

Faux Tank Paper Mockup. I'll have to figure if it will be Real Steel or at least make it to appear as real as metal:)


An Old Rack for a Chain Guard?

Kinda looks cool! Most definitely need to figure how I could mount it...

I love the tank insert, I may steal/borrow some of that idea when I build my X53. I like how it mimics the placement of the scoops of the actual tank
I like that second guard a lot, it has similar lines to your tank insert.

I definitely like the saddlebags.
Maybe distress the tool bag to match.
The drop bars look cool from some angles, but from others, not so much.
It's a great looking build no matter how the details shake out.

A little 60 grit should distress that tool bag nicely.

This is kinda starting to resemble something,but I can't for the life of me quite put my finger on it. Very cool looking though.
