Doubling down on the chrome. If one hubcap sized chrome chain ring guard is good, why not two?

Whoa... that's some pretty tight seat clearance! Probably best to skip the second trip to the buffet.

Thank you very much!

Haha, yup pulled the seat down from the warehouse. I think I used the spoked wheels from the same model? Thanks for uploading those. Made creating the rough 3Ds much easier and let me put most of my focus on the overall design.

Love the tight fit between the fender and tire!

Thanks.

I found reference somewhere online that showed pinching the sides of a motorcycle fender closer together to increase fender radius, and match tire diameter. Had an old thin tire 26" front fender that I was able to get to fit the 27" tire. Still a little bit of a bulge near the chain but not too bad.

Here's a couple drawings and rough 3D model images showing where I'm headed. I'm kinda best guessing the seat-crank-handlebar positions. There will probably be adjustments along the way. I also plan to smooth and paint it too... if time allows!

Figuring out how the donor frame will be chopped and reassembled.

Side view dimensioned to establish seat-crank-bar approximate locations and head tube angle.

A couple rough 3D model images to get an overall feel.

The showroom quality on this bike is stunning!
It was my favorite before the paint and polish even went on...What can I say now?
