Thanks y'all. I've tried doing my own welding and... well... I'd rather have Charlie weld for me when he can.
Here's the latest mockup. Glad the dropouts are finally done so that I can move on. Much more work ahead!

Thanks Carl, I really appreciate that.Some visual ques and details just work and there's no reason not to revisit them. TRM has carved a niche out of the custom rat bike environment for himself. Years from now folks will see these bikes and point at those details and say - "Look at that, and look at those..." and things like - "It looks sort of like a Spaceliner but then again..." I'd love to see them try to figure it out! It's looking great brother, a nod to it's Raceliner roots.
I haven't settled on the rims yet but they will most likely be of the older chrome steel variety. It will get a modern rear hub with 7 gears and a coaster brake.What you putting on this for wheels? Always liked the modern front wheel on the Raceliner. Any gears?
I've got some ideas.Those lines!!!
Opting for the right saddle and bars will be the game changer....
Sorry about mixing you up with another builder, now I know what you built. Raceliner is a gorgeous bike, and Quoise has a perfect stance, it looks like it's moving when standing stillI finally took a few minutes to do a rolling mock-up and take it out of the shop for a look.

I'm really liking how the 24" fork and wheel are giving all of the horizontal lines a downward rake. It has a more aggressive stance than the Raceliner had!
