Of course I had to jump into this build off... Kinda wish I had saved a couple of my already-almost-done SpaceLiner customs for the build off but it gives me a reason to start a new one. Here is what I will be starting with:

I had built up this FleetWing Mariner I got from Joe as an easy cruiser for my girl with a rack for her radio, but we broke up cuz we lived in different states... I went and got the bike back.

I have a chrome tank that I am going to try to make fit...

Not sure about the rest of the parts I am going to put on it. We shall see.

Re: the Navigator

Nice ride.

Is that some "engine turning" treatment on the chainguard? If so can we see a close up of it?

Thanks

Scott

"I am...the Navigator"

That was a sweet movie. This should be a cool bike!

Re: the Navigator

picked up the bike a while ago... but I've been distracted with my Roadmaster project.

Anyway, here is the "before" picture.

and here is a rough mock-up... nothing is actually attached, still waiting on a couple parts.
But this is the general idea:

more to come...

the chainguard will not actually be gold... going to strip it or repaint it.

the seat will actually be a little higher than that when mounted, with "bounce-room"

3308140775_54006e63a4_b.jpg

Going to be mounting this up here... somehow.

it's between this chainring and one that I am getting in a couple of days...

Re: the Navigator (finally getting started...)

I'm gunna go out on a limb and say it doesn't need a tank. But I could be wrong. Really like it so far Joey.

Dude! This is why I was stoked to have you jump in on this build-off! I don't know how you can have so many unique ways to do up a spaceliner, man!

Re: the Navigator (finally getting started...)

That looks great. I like the brass chainguard with all the chrome. The spiro sprocket would look great if it was all silver.
