Well it was a Long journey, It has been very fun and while the work was hard it was relaxing at the same time. Even when things went wrong it was fun.
Well heres what was done:
Started as just a custom paint in mind. Ended with removing the braces and putting them inside the fenders. Welding the front fender to the fork. Making a Custom "Kick Stand" more like a prop rod. A completely revamped skirt/chain guard that is one piece now.

This is the photo for the List thread:

Now the rest

A Special thanks to:

My Dad, For all of his help and teaching me to do this work.
The Gulf Kruisers, for making kruising around the bay area fun
RRB members, for all the encouragement and good fun, as well as supplying some of the parts.

Thank you son for letting me be a part of this project. Can't wait to start the next one. (but you didn't have to crash the wife's bike to make that happen)
