Getting a little nervous. Still waiting on parts ordered to come in and still haven't begun paint. Busy life, 8 daughters, work and loosing focus with the western flyer, can consume a lot of time. Hopefully I can have it painted this weekend for finally assembly next week.

Got paint done, went blue, then dusted it with hammered finish pewter, then started on some assembling. Here are some pics, really can't make out the over spray in the shadow of the carport, will get some better ones in the sunlight later.

Getting close, exhaust installed, new chains installed, gas tank mounted and hooked up, cables for throttle and clutch connected, engine chain installed. Now to drill the axle for the engine sprocket and fix it in place, front fender, seat and basket and she will be done. I did get to take it on it's first pedal ride around the block. Rides like a caddy. So if all goes good tomorrow evening it should be completed and in the finished thread.

Finally it's done. Brought it to work today and ........ well pretty much played with it all day and finished it. Rides great, runs great and has crazy torque.

Looks great.
Maybe next year a trailer for al those extras it is good to have?

I actually have a trailer for it, gonna paint to match the bike and convert it to a BBQ pit, have a blue cooler that fits the basket and ordering a 400w bluetooth stereo powered by a Optima Gel Cell. Then I will sell it as the ultimate tailgating rig.
