WOW! Does that look GREAT! :mrgreen:
thanks mark! this is gonna be my space-age taillight! once i got it off the clunky bracket,it cleaned up way better than i thought it would. this makes the third taillight i`ve gotten, from the boating section of ebay! :lol:
The stem really gives it an alien feel.
Kind of like something out of Men in Black. :wink:
Dang, this build just keeps getting better!
Nice work. That is the second stem i have seen on a cruiser and they work perfectly.
today was nice and sunny,so i took the frame outside and spent another 2hrs. deep cleaning it. the natural light made it alot easier to spot the blemishes! then i massaged the rear dropouts,with a dremel tool,to make it easier to adjust and load the bigger rear tire. next i cut another inch off the bars,narrowing them to 24" wide.much racier! the drivetrain will be installed tonite,this is the combination: sprocket from mid to late 50`s monark,new blk. crank w/ 9/16" threads, and some n.o.s.,cold war era ,czech. made pedals. notice the hi-tech wax paper packaging! :lol:
Looks good! You'll be ridin' on the Moon in comfort and style. 8)
Dang I really like how this one is turning out!
wow thats one clean bike !!! i like how the grips kinda match the tread too.
keep the pics comin
If it ends up looking anything like the other bikes you have built it will be awesome.
Looking gooood !!!!
This is exactly why I like this website
complete and utter coolness
it`s picture day! got the drivetrain done,minus chain. gotta leave it off till i get my moon tank brackets made. had to borrow the seatpost from my `41 lafrance,then mounted a n.o.s. blk. leather troxel,i had been saving for another project. mocked up the speedo on the narrowed bars,but i`ll make another bracket! now i have to fab up mounts for the headlight,taillight,aux. landing lights,and finally the nuclear power drive. :shock:
Wow. That looks so cool... 8)
forgot to post pics of my space age headlight! one 1958 darwin explorer headlight,in it`s original bag! now if i could just find a 1958 gibson explorer,in an original bag!! :lol:
Looks great and the lights are SWEET!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Man that bike is sweet!!
There's only one thing about that bike that I don't like. It's at your house, not mine. :mrgreen:
