I’ll be using a raw Worksman Newsboy frame as the base for my build. This could be a quick finish. [emoji4]

Look at you with your fancy schmancy gum walls and cross brace handlebar, you call that bare bones? What's next, anno chain and billet pedals? Piker. :crazy::rofl:

Just realized that someone else already used "Bare Bomber" as their name.

Might have to change mine to avoid confusion. :)

"Bare this," and, "Bare that." What are you fellas, a bunch of naturists?

Maybe you should change the name the the Beach Streaker (or Don't Look Ethyl!)

Might have to change the name again...ha ha! :bigsmile:

Today we got home from the 4th of July parade and I decided mock up the Worksman.

I had this red sealed bearing headset that ended up fitting the frame so I gave it a try. Took me about 2 hours to get it all put together. Didn't put any grease in the BB yet.

The reason I'm thinking about a name change is that I want to paint the frame and fork or maybe have it powder coated. Thinking about going with a light blue color. Thought it would look good with the red components.

I'm also planning to go with some black wall tires in the same style/design as these white walls. Need to order a set from Clyde James Cycles.

So here's how it looks mocked up....cruises really nice too.
