Nah, she's perfect as she is.

Eddie, what's the suicide knob for--or is it just for fun?

That's nice. Are you going to put a new headlight in the original "bullet" housing?

i thought about making the light work, but then i thought it was time to move on to a new project!!! from what i understand its not-so-ordinary to still have the plastic lens in those old bikes.

BJ wouldn't know an alt bike if it came up and bit him on the ass. Looks good in white to me.

One thing you could do to improve pedal clearance is to put the orig. front fork and a 26" wheel back on and keep the 20 in back, it would still be way cool and would handle a lot better that way too.
