    Still needs the shift cable run and a few small adjustments, but here she is. Need headbadge screws, cable clamps and a cable stop, small parts where the cable connects to the actuator, etc

    I'm so jealous of your coaster brake setup. If HodgePodge hadn't been on such a strict budget I'd have been in the market for a 3-speed just like yours. You've also kinda got me reconsidering my chain guard... we'll see.

    I will be taking more pics, I missed my window of good lighting by 20 minutes. The location looks like it will work out though.

    That's what I like about all this....that bike was doomed and now you brought it back to a killer looking sweet ride. I would SO ride that bike. Great job! :D

    Neat curves in frame and nice build, I like the moss patina on the original, guess the green retains the look. Bike looks mighty fine.

    Awesome build! I was directed here by Kingfish. I just recently acquired a frame like this. Yours looks awesome as a SS! Great job on the paint!
