It's like the racing position for touring bikes just tipped back a little so you can see where you're going without craning your neck.

Hi Skip!

Sent from the edge of an alternate universe...
The famous Skipton stretch position.
The saddle position reminds me of the slingshot style dragsters. The engine was in the front and the driver sat a bit behind the rear axle.

Thanks for checking in guys! I’m going to be busy for a couple weeks. :D

Got the fender tire clearance all dialed in. And fender position set.
Then on to getting rid of the ugly cantilever brake posts on the fork.

Not going to use a seat post so going to clean this area on the frame up.

Some more poor basement workspace photos. This is how it’s going to sit tell next week.. Driving a thousand miles starting Thursday to take my oldest to college (Northeastern University) in Boston. Next week it’s lots of coffee and midnight oil to finish the bike... How about those late 80s early 90’s Campagnolo brake levers!? Going to see if I can make those work with the disk brakes. Bike looks rough now but I see my vision taking shape. :rolleyes:;)
Thanks again for looking and all the support. :thumbsup:

Love the fat campy levers!
You'll pull it off before the deadline.
Safe travels to Boston!
Yeah, what he said!
You always bring a unique flavor to a bike and this one is no exception.
Best of luck to your son at school.

Cheers buddy!
