This one took on the "bolt it on mantra" of 70s bicycles but with newish stuff, steers like a mountain bike, wheelies like my Schwinn Crate I had as a kid.

This bike all checkerboard touches are duct tape, seat bag stripe and green buckle accent are duct tape ( except bag). On vinyl if you get area that won’t stick, glue it ( I used a little monkey glue on this bag, used sharpie to black out glue if showing) Kinda tricky to cut, so I keep to straight edges.CA0E6DEB-5A91-4880-9876-FB380CC459D2.jpegthat won’t stick glue it. I used alittle monkey glue.

When I built this bike I got ready to put the rack on and discovered I didn't have any of those clamps that go around the frame. I came up with something else. I used a small "L" shaped bracket and attached it to the bolt that holds the fender, placing it on upside down. I bolted the bracket in place and attached the rack to the other end of the bracket. Made for a very clean mount without the klunky clamps. The rack doesn't come in contact with the frame so no scratches. These are the best pics I have. Hope you can see what I did.
