Today I got the frame and chaingaurd cleaned and sprayed with clear coat Satin finish. Just 2 light coats to seal in all the original paint and patina.

Looks great, but you should edit the post and select Full Image. Do this for all of your posts so that people can see the pics without having to click on them to enbiggen them.

Today I added a handlebar mock up.
I really like the way this is looking.

Those bars are cool! Are they originally for a bicycle, or some other 'rider' like an atv ?

LOVE THE BARS MAN!!!!
I like how they are looking on this build too!!!

I just got a set of those this year. They are from a Murray Mark 3. I also had some faux ones made by @karfer67 five years ago for my SaltHammer build and I used them in a flipped position.
