I put 25 miles on it today, was quite the loop. I found this fence along the way shortly after the sun came up.




We rode past Centennial Park Along the way, was starting to warm up, but caught a cool down.






Rode past this on the way home.





This bike started for me as a sprayed over rusted 1940 HP Snyder Frame. I think its passed its way around rrb for a few years.

And I ended up with this.


I had a few hiccups during the build. I love the way this bike rides. the seat is far enuff back I can have it low amd still comfortably put miles on it.

This came out really nice. I love that seat post and how it nicely flows with bikes frame
Thanks snake!

I was tryin to set that front spring about where the post came out of the frame, and barely off the fender when I'm riding it. After putting some miles on it today, came out better than I had planned comfort-wise. I'm 6'1", gives me room for my legs when on the hills.

That saddle needs a few more rides to fit my rear, its a bit hard.. :-/

I love how you made those handlebars from some BMX ones.
BRAVO!

Those were actually 70s Honda xl250 bars..

They started out slightly tweaked from a telephone pole I hit while airborne, back in the 80's.. ( 14 and reckless back then )

When I bent them for the bicycle that bend went away. :)

And I had a new cool set of bike bars.
