I saw it out on the town today, it's a good looking build. Stood beside Duck Norris and Canadian Metal without a hint of self doubt

It was third attempt to get them. There bared up back there and would take work. Closed off in the back they would be free to work out of sight. Back a truck in the back the house behind is abandoned.Could have lost a few. Neighbors are letting me lock them in there garage till I build a solution.

Glad you didn't lose anything.
Love the pride your boy has for his Typhoon. Did he come up with a build name?

No but he's heading down the dark hole. Already looking for a tank and playing around with lights.He appreciates old stuff has a calculator collection that would knock your socks off some all the way back to the 1920s (the mechanics in them is amazing). Changed the fork on his own with me double checking tightness. Don't want him to get hurt.I was surprised to see him pull out the maquires and use it. Polished the fenders. He already knew how watched me do it many times.
It's the schwinns the theives are after we don't have many Chicago Schwinns in these parts there's three in our town and all three are in my yard.

Was never in love with the way the front fender sat looked pinched in. So after trying a few things I to bend it I decided to use something I learned from @MattiThundrrr smacked it with a hammer.

Nice work on the wire routing.
This build has just the right mix of clean and funk. Love it.
