    I bought this off a member, made a few changes thanks to more members. I added a newer "vintage look" stem, Newer cross brace bars, newer Sweet Heart chain ring, 70s Schwinn Ashtabula crank, newer white "Bow" pedals, front and rear lights, vintage squeeze horn, and antique wheel powered bell. Let me know what you guys think.

    I love the bars. Where did you get them from?

    Those bars look great! Since you have named it Nomad, did you see the Nomad car badge that was in the for sale section?

    Looks great, ILB. Wish I could get a clearer look at the stem you went with, as well as the bell and how it mounts to the fork. Really nice build. We oughta organize an annual Del-Val Worksman ride...

    I like the stem.... nicer than the Wald 4 it replaced. But...that bell rules.

    Thanks man! The pics make the bell look like its totally rusty, when in reality is has very very minor rust. Let me know when/if you get a Worksman ride together! :)

    Just added the Nomad name badge. I wanted to keep the space on the top and bottom of the letters the same, that's why its spaced evenly at the top and bottom of the "N" and spaced evenly at the top and bottom of the "D," What do you guys think?

    I don't think there's a better way to put that badge on that guard....
