my bike is almost done....

Just waiting for warmer weather to test a new shifter before I waste time modifying it. I still have a jockey shifter to customize and mount. Currently using the sturmey archer 3 speed twist shifter mounted on the seatpost. I also may drop the front springer using a new crown.

Rear wheel is a sturmey archer 3 speed internally geared hub. Painted rim and spokes flat black hub left original. White wall tires front and rear. 144 spoke front wheel. Dice valve caps. 22 inch tall ape hangers. Skull grips. Cup holder. All the gearing has been changed to get a easier gear for climbing hills. removed front fender so I can se the spokes shine while riding. Installed front fender on rear for a "bobbed" look. It functions great because the bike is so long i tend to back into things which scratched the rear fender. Now the tire is a bumper for me. Sealed bottom bracket and upgraded cranks. Huge chrome ding dong bell.

Still debating a motor kit but I dont think it will happen. To expensive once you get the shifter kit and all the proper bits.

Hope you folks enjoy! I know I like it. Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Cant really think of anything else for this machine.

Looking good. Forget the motor kit. Get a motorcycle, get a bicycle, not something that combines the worst of both worlds.

good looking stretch. they're what i like.

i like a seat with a backrest on mine. since you can't stand up and pedal harder it gives you something to push against when you're putting in more effort.

Nice ride, I like it. Forget the motor kit here also, you don't want to spoil it.
