Looks like a good project. And it’s purple, so extra points! Nice fenders too.

What makes it a “motoglide”? A decal? (I’m not seeing any “moto” there.)

One thing I don’t like is bikes that have big high rise bars, and a tiny seat. Where I live it would be seen as a typical goofy mismatched “homeless biker” look.

Also, I have a bucket of those bicycle spoke reflectors. That’s the first thing I take off of a bike when I get it.

I am glad that I don't live where you do. :D

It wouldn’t surprise me if you were, and for many reasons. I live in one of those neighborhoods where old people usually look to see if a guy on a bicycle looks homeless or not, before they call the police. I look too suspicious already!

Half the people here are afraid to even drive a car on the road, so if you’re on a bicycle you’re either a freak, a kid, a fitness nut, a poor student, or homeless. And the traffic here is particularly nice compared to wealthy places like Santa Barbara and San Francisco.

One of my go to bikes, never been homeless. The 4 speed is very nice to have, 26”in the front, & 24” rear.

Picked up this Mango Toucan 3 speed tonight after dinner. Mainly got it for the diamond edge tires.

Is that gripeShifter mounted on the stem? I like that! Bars are nice and tall too
Yes, they put the "gripe" shifter on the stem. Probably when the added the Electra apes and complained about the shifter cable not being long enough anymore.

I always wanted to put a gripshift on the seatpost but I'm rather short and have to slam all my seats down

I’ll bet it felt very small after riding the monster Colson.

Not so much. Going from a stretch to a feetforward bike isn't a big leap.
