    After being sidetracked by what started as a simple "let's replace the foyer door" and turned into a month+ long remodel of the foyer and stairwell I finally got back to this build. Tonight's progress included finding and fitting of headset bearings and cups, selection of gooseneck and handle bars, possible choice on the hand grips and initial sanding of the bare frame. Will try to tackle the sanding of the tank, fenders, chainguard, and front fork. Here's hoping the other home improvement projects don't get in the way.

    today's progress consisted of sanding the tank, chain guard, and fork. I think the fork needs a little more sanding but I need a break first.
