This ‘68 custom stingray was a fun build. Started with an original frame, fork, crankset, and stem. Most of the other parts came from a donor all pro bike. The 20x3 slick is a really tight squeeze, but it just clears. I always liked the look of the early deluxe chainguard decal so I went with one on this.

I think you did a great job on this one. The changes you made were subtle, but I think they really add to the look of the bike. The meats on the rear tire, the shiny chain guard, that cool old headlight, all of it goes together nicely. Very clean and tastefully done. Great job @kram!

This is what I would term as the classic 'vintage clean' build ! You kept the patina, while still shining her up, and your add-ons and touches finished it off beautifully!

A true old school, hot rod, muscle bike. :thumbsup:
