I'm going with an aluminum rims to match the car, to stay old style I'm running a skip tooth setup. Carlisle Lightning Dart rear tire.


Using my black Brooks seat.

Bearing cups are shot, never seen a pair with gouges like these.

Put a mockup crank in to get the chain length correct.

I guess I'm really getting tired, I'm starting to like the ugly green color.
The frame has a LOT of dents, what do ya'll think leave the dents to show the bikes history or remove the dents, and loose it's history?

This is the aluminum rim that I'm going to use drop center in the front and a wider aluminum flat rim in the rear.

Kick stand from a JC Higgins Colorflow.

Found these bad boys in the garage.



To tie the bike in with the car the bike is going to have a Shelby vin. tag with the bike vin.# The tag I'm going to use is for a 68 Shelby the one pictured is for a 65 Shelby.



Shelby steering wheel center cap emblem.

I'm going to bolt in an aluminum panel and paint it black.


Not sure if I'm going to use the 428 cobra jet emblems, at 40.00 ea.

Great theme to go with...Looks like its all coming together.
Interesting to see the color under the green.
Mo history revealed the better...Dings and all.
