I got the fender on. I'm happy with it. Dig that fin!

I usually like to build a spare, stripped-down, purposeful bike, but I must admit I'm enjoying dressing this thing up. I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just need to add vintage, jewel side reflectors, a bullet taillight and some cool valve caps.
The fender is cool it looks like the rocket man helmet

I bought two of these many months ago from Ruff, thinking I'd find a use for them. I'm gonna tuck one under the back of the seat.

For those who actually have followed my build, remember the early '50s Monark that gave up the wheelset, tires, bars and fork for my Kristmas Krate? I found a brass fuel tank made to fit the ol' Monark, and built a motor bike around that tank and frame. I finished it today. Here it is, complete with Monark-style fork, front disc brake, rear V-brake, mags, tuned exhaust and CNC plates over the engine:

Cool ride~! It has kind of steampunk meets 20th Century look. So, are the CNC'd plates over the engine made specifically for that engine, or is it a kit that generally fits a range of these small engines? That's a really cool finishing touch, SD!

They are made just for the two-stroke generic Chinese bike motors. They even have them in colored "anodized" finishes. There's a whole world of custom and hi-po parts for these kits.
