    Rear fender and rack installed
    Should be fun trying to get that rear tire aligned so it doesn't rub.

    To keep or ditch the rear rack? What do you guys think?

    Do you have a profile shot that is more from the side? That one is up too high for me to see what the profile of the rack looks like.

    Pointing up too high. I'd either ditch it, or find a way to bring it down flat.

    Yeah, you really want a rack - how else will you transport a 12-pack from the local quick-e-mart?

    Looks like you just need to bend the front of it back up.

    Haha this is true, but honestly I hardly ever use a rear rack on any of my rides. I typically go fender less and rack less. So this is different for me, not sure how I'm liking it.

    I think this bike looks good without it.

    I think it would look better without the rack. The reptilian lace fenders are looking sweet on there.

    Took a break from the build today and pieced this bad boy together, just waiting for the 3 piece crank to arrive and going to order me some coke bottle grips. Picked it up locally from a fellow RRB member.

    Yes to Luke's suggestion...and if you want even more compression, while still retaining the smooth movement, add a nylon washer in the mix...

    I like the flare up of the rack...it mimics the flare on the bars, and is juxtaposed with the curving arc of the seat / rack stays and the springer / fender braces...but maybe that's just me. :cool:

    Unfortunately guys I'm going to have to bail on this build. I just picked up 2 really nice and expensive bikes and I gotta recoup some money. So I'm going to have to sell it off.

    Throw a crank and a chain on it, ride it and take some pictures for the finished thread before you sell it. It may not be what you had planned, but it looks like a rat rod to me (and a nice one at that)! :thumbsup:
