We have a cloudy day here and a few minutes to spare, so I got my wife to act as cinematographer and shoot a short ride video of me on our newly paved street and the '53 Bel Airflow Shelby. Smoooooooth....

There's nothing like riding on fresh asphalt!

Looks like a good rider :thumbsup:
You can say that again! Especially after riding for 5 weeks on a crushed up dirt and asphalt granular mess. At least it helped me get all the creaks and pings and crunches out riding on that rough surface!

It is a good rider. The bar extensions allow me to sit back and upright, and the laid back seat post gives it that nice extension to the pedals without riding too high. It's a keeper!

Great looking bike and your mods, especially the seatpost, make it fit you very well. Nice job.

A question was asked earlier in the week about a 26" mountain bike conversion option. The following video addresses that, and a short walk around the '53 Bel Airflow Shelby. @Captain Awesome @Karate Chicken Industries @metalchewy you guys will be particularly interested in this vid!
