The style I like........SIMPLE!.......Although, it's gotta TANK, CHAINGUARD, and a KICKSTAND! Not what I usually do. You'd never know the forks were bent, handles and corners GREAT!

Wow that looks great! (no seriously, I mean it this time) Real nice job on the patina and that tank is killer. Looks like a comfortable, ridable bike. And the sissy bar will come in handy for carting away skinny tired English bikes!

I feel the same. For an old guy you built a real nice bike. Looks like a good rider too. A far cry from that bike that was leaning against the tree! Leave this bike on the Cape next time your out this way.

I was looking at the first 6 photos and was thinking "well...mhm...aha...mm..." then when I saw the 7th photo, the full shot of the bike my jaw dropped! You must have hit the nail right on because I love it! :D

THANKS guys for the positive feedback! I know a lot of people aren't "crazy" about banana seats and apes, but I'm a fairly good sized person, and I like how far back I can sit. This was an extremely easy build, other then the fork it remains in completely stock configuration. I tried a similar painting technique an an earlier bike, but didn't take it far enough. It was a little weird NOT bead blasting or stripping the paint. I'm terrible with a camera, so the paint may not come through very well. But I really, really like the finish on this thing. As far as handling, this is my favorite set up..........THANKS again!
