This works for me man. Took me a minute to attach that thing to the frame and clean it up but whatever. This is "ratrod" bikes not look at what I ordered from Amazon now bikes

I just realized making these little "ratted" parts as invisible as possible is a lot more time consuming than what I normally do.

I like the the lights and I especially like how cool the long spring solo polo seat turned out.

Thanks, I was trying to make it "just" look like a bicycle here. I decided to save my torch for the official build off. The only other clever thing I do may be a multispeed hub but I really don't want cables on it and don't want to drill this frame after I made all that effort on this finish

I kinda have limited 24" spoke choices here. I have a kick back but I misplaced the spokes I need to use it. I am one short. I mean I misplaced an entire wheel I don't remember what happened to it.

I really like this hub shell though

I also have a two speed manual and a trippl speed new departure. I am not that impressed with a red band and this Nexus is the best riding but one of the old fancy hubs will probably go on here anyway

Trying to come up with a little nicer wheels for this and just tried to lace a 28 hole shell into a 26 hole hoop. Some days you wish you just left it alone

Well there ya go, there's a reason for the seat. I need legroom myself, so I usually go with a bent solid post to kick me back a bit, over the tire. Wheel swaps are fun to watch, I've put half a dozen wheel sets on before I know what I want, like you, I dislike cables. But...
Always gotta help the neighborhood kids, even the old guys that ride by and ask about tires. Words getting around I ditch all the MTB tires I get...
Your build is still awesome.

Carl.
