I haven't named the build yet and it is my first time so I am already in awe of some of the progress and sketches I've seen but I'll post what I've started with and where I am at. Basically its a 1977-78? Sears Free Spirit chopper. Sold off the the gas tank and chain guard and am building with whats left. I sand blasted Frame, fork, bars and wheels. And laind down a two-stage candy red on frame and blacked out everything else and thats where I'm at now. Tires arrived today, still waiting on seats, grips and chain....Then I am going to try and weld up some custom goodies. Stay tuned!

Good idea ditching that oddball tank! Word of advice, forum wise: when you upload your images, be sure to click the "Full Image" option. It makes for easier viewing

Some progress, finished up the chain guard, and built the "spider tank"
had the idea to replace the old tank with a spider perched on frame. used my other fire cat frame to help mock it up. spider and chain guard will be white. Going to make the spider a white widow. So I think that is also the official name. White Widow.

So I finally have the actual name for the bike. Not sure how to change the name of the thread or if I can. Bike is all together just need to touch up paint and add a couple last touches. The bike's official name is "White Widow" The spider perched where the tank once was will (by tomorrow) have a red hourglass on its back. I had to weld a pin on the bottom of the spider that drops into the frame so when I put bolt in behind the spider it stays fixed real good in place. Photo shoot tomorrow!

Yes you can change the thread name. There's a pull down menu you can use. See the "dot dot dot" button at the top of my thread in the screen shot below? It brings you the "edit thread" option.
