Well done man, she's a beauty!

Looks really laid back, but all 1930s gangster cars and fast planes at the same time!

...About the bell... Maybe you should get a bulb horn? The again, maybe not...

- I bet you're glad you didn't fit those modern bouncy forks!

Yeah, I am glad I was able to fix the original fork. It was a pain but worth it. I have a chrome bell on it now. I do want to get a smaller front sprocket and a chrome chain guard eventually just because I get grease all over my pants.

I'm not normally a fan of bikes having things they don't strictly need

But the racks are really nice, a creature comfort

Cool co-ordinated beaker too

And I will stay tuned to this thread to see how the bike looks with a chainguard

With a suitably 'retro futuristic' dyamamic looking chainguard - I bet it's gonna look even better - with the bonus of your clothes your staying clean 8)

What a classy build
