After an extensive jig build, the bike is starting to take shape! Talk about building anticipation!

Could that be a awesome build name? Anticipation?

And lots of greasy balls showing around this buildoff time period. I enjoy seeing that.

More graphic fun:
I cruised 1001 Fonts to find a font with a similar vibe to the Spaceliner font. Then I took some measurements off the guard and broke out the Cricut software... I made up a stencil and placed it roughly where the old script was, then sponge-painted it in. This is how it came out:

This thing is fearsome, scary... The frame is huge, tall bottom bracket, seven inch crank. I can’t believe that hooligan scorchers raced these things for money on city streets and sidewalks. No brakes, very grunty gears, the fastest thing in the city. I’ll have to take it very easy, you could kill yourself on one of these so called safety bikes
