Wow, that's pretty different, I like it.

As a skateboarder from the 80s I do remember skull skates well, pretty cool seeing their logo on the seatstays!

The final addition to the build has been a pair of Hoffman chain tensioners - an essential addition as the back wheel was slipping forward.

Knight BMX finally reissued their C-Dub cruiser bar and I just ordered a set. I think they will be a good fit for this build.

Thanks Kaiser. I'll post some more pics when the new bars arrive.
Its funny you spend all this time and effort (and cash) building your dream bike and you just don't feel like thrashing it. Even the prospect of riding it in the wet troubles me. Is this a common problem for folks that build nice bikes?
