I love the shifter and cable also, not something you see often.
Nothing too exciting today, cleaning and rebuilding hubs.a few weeks ago I scored theses two headlights for $1.00, for the pair, at a yard sale .
Smaller one had bracket, so i put it on the larger one. I had not even really looked them over, turns out large one has internal battery holder.
looks like it was never used, threw two D cells in light and horn work fine.
it might find its way into the build.
Am I wrong in assuming that $50 word means pushing 60?
Great score on the lights!
Lights look awesome!
Started paint, having some trouble with major fish eyes... will figure it out.
Nope, you are not wrong for assuming. And that might be the first time in history that making an assumption was not pure conjecture.
You might have a tribe of tiny grease monkeys getting it dirty.
It could happen.
Seriously though,the color scheme looks good. I hope you get it figured out.
Yup, just a minor setback, its all good. Wife wanted just blue, but I wanted to surprise her with the blue and creme, I think it looks better than solid blue.
Yup, the two tone looks great.
That blue and creme look great!
in the home stretch and I ordered a few new parts, humm we shall see if they arrive in time.... either way I will havea painted ride-able bike at the finish like... just wondering what parts will be on it..... Keeping it interesting
Peddling to the finish line...
Well, lesson learned on last minute parts orders... Looks like I won't have any of it.... I will cross the finish line though, No one to blame but me, last minute changes, are just that last minute. BOA-G tires will be here mid week, Laid back seat post, somewhere in the USPS system, same for my grips... A cool bike will cross the finish line, an even cooler one will be done shortly.
Ugg, rain, thunder, Lightning at the finish line..... Can I make it???
It might be tricky to build and hold an umbrella at the same time, still about 7 hours to do though.
Done! pics to follow
