"...I'm really liking the looks of this build, man. I really dig the simplicity of your front end. And I bet it rides amazingly...
And by simplicity I mean looks... I'm sure the time involved in creating it is contrary to the looks. It's straightforward, but the deltails bring it all together in its amazingness..."

Your very kind. It's hard to believe something coddled together like this actually feels like it was all meant to be together.

I'm just happy to get it done!

I had my test pilot Louie, who's a biscuit under 240 to test drive the Higgy. He didn't break anything so i figure it meets minimum safety standards. :shock:

Time to break 'er down and sand....

"...did you warn him about that seat post?..."

Nah. He likes that kind of thing. :shock: Only kidding. He'd kick my butt for suggesting such a thing.

Got this leather bolo braided cord from "Leather Cord USA" on the 'net. Comes in spools (mine is 10 meters) and differnt widths (mine is 4 milli) and colors (mine is antique brown).

I'm gonna drill a hole underneath the bars where your thumbs would rest, then thread the cord thru and out the end of the bars. Secure the cord, then begin to tightly wrap the cord around til i reach the end, where another hole will be, to thread the cord thru. Then I'll tie the 2 ends together.

It feels real good on the hands.

Got the frame pretty much stripped to bare metal (thank you Mr. Porter Cable sander and Mrs. 100 grit paper).

Have to hang the parts in the shed and start painting.

Well, the paint went on better than I'd hoped. This stuff really lays on well and covers in one coat. I didn't even have time to prime first.

If you want the real mil-spec colors, check out Gillespie Coatings.
