got it rolling. Not done, rolling. Finally after years of collecting parts and bikes. I always just build one bike for show that year. I pulled this together with spare parts. And, like all of us on here, we got lots-o-spares. Spare frames, wheels, cranks, bikes, pedals,...you get it. Now let's see how long it takes to complete it. The pressure is on!

Not sure I understand the poll thing. I couldn't post until I did it. Probably just me 🤪 put the proto down Paulie.

Fenders mounted! Props to my boy Mark D @ Sutter Street Cruisers for the job. Mark saved me hours of tedious work. Mark also steers me through these not vintage waters. I see what I like then he tells me if I can pull it off or not.

Next step will be welding a tube under the tank. After that I should be able to paint. Woo hoo!

Before you weld in another tube under the tank………….You might consider other methods of mounting the tank. I say that because it looks so good in your previous pictures.
what about using a flat strap so it’s hidden under the tank?
Or what about an internal piece of flat welded to the top bar sticking down?
Or… sorry I just realized you didn’t ask for suggestions.
carry on, Sir

Suggestions are always welcome Oak Tree. Funny though, I've been thinking the same exact thing. It looks so clean just hanging there. Maybe prettier zip ties,...🤣 I'm working on that idea. I don't want to cut up the tank.
