    Maybe mimic the total curve of the tuquoise on the body on the guard. Make it sweep around from the bottom front around the front and along the top to the rear point

    Maybe even angle it more to match the angle of the sweep

    I like the chainguard even if it is not a perfect fit. I think the bike is very Art Deco and the chainguard (an actual Art Deco design) supplements the theme real nice.

    Honestly the bike looks so good and that two tone paint is so pretty, I think it would be better without the rust and fauxtina. I sincerely believe You should push it in the hotrod rather than the ratrod direction.

    Something like the 50s version of that guard would fit better...like KF mentioned, it needs to accentuate the curves and the points...

    ...finding one on short notice might be an issue, however :grin:.

    Thanks for the input everyone, I'll figure something out.
    Hopefully I'm still off work tomorrow, it's the last full day I have to work on this.

    Actually, I personally: think chaingaurd needs to go ;
    It messes up the whole :
    geometry, and look of the body.:(

    I like the guard, so I think it'll stay.

    Still one thing I'd like to do before calling it done, but may not be able to get it. So I went out and took some pics, just in case.

    Love the guard, but you need to focus your camera for those other pics.

    Yea, I was a bit over heated when I took them.
    Still a few days left, I'll get something.

    Another thing to watch out for is a smeared lens. Nothing worse than taking a bunch of cool pics on a ride only to find out they are blurry when you upload them :mad:

    Love it man!
    The bomb still seems less "finished" with the patina paint though. It doesn't seem like it is at the same high caliber of the rest of the expert painting you've done on the bike.
    Incredible build.

    I noticed that myself, I did always like it as is. But I have an idea.

    I'll be pushing this to the wire.
