    You may find that it has a sealed beam lamp in the housing. Nice find just the same. And a belated congrats for your skinny wheel entry. I thought it was a winner from the start.

    I have been inspired by the builds that I saw in this, my first buildoff and have been encouraged to further persue my hobby. How awesome is this community!

    Finds up north

    Reporting from the westernmost province of this north country. I found something interesting at a thrift store a while back. The biplane fork crown and bull moose caught my eye at first and I thought that the crankset looked kinda desirable, so I coughed up the $20 and loaded into my pickup...

    Did a double take on the reflector sticker. Took a minute to realise the significance. Good one.

    Fenders or Fenderless ?

    I thought a chopper style suicide shifter might be appropriate for this build. I mounted a thumb shifter on the seat tube. I spread the clamp enough to fit on the seat tube and installed a longer curved bolt with nut. Its not real elegant, but it works my mind is already trying to figure a...
