well i got this bike from tgriffin in trade for butcher, so i thought about tossing some less rusty parts at it to make it rideable. still needs a new(er) wheelset, this one is pretty rough. leaving now to ship butcher out, so dont be worryin todd. :wink: i got later stingray bars with some random coke bottle grips i thought would be fitting, and the seat off big red(its a seat that came off another higgins), since i dont have gas for my welder to do up a seat post to make the solo polo work. i called it "The Great Pretender" cuz i was listening to the song when i did a sketch for the bike. :mrgreen:

thanks galt! i was thinking of taking it to the local sandblaster and then spraying it up in a dark navy blue, with ivory scallops and the solo polo wrapped in ivory naugahyde, with taller apes and matching coke bottle grips(not these ones, they're too scuffed up)

i kind of want to paint the rims to match the frame color, and then get a WW and a BW tire like his, it just looks so cool!
