Nice. Did you do the Olivia/Betty Page graphic yourself?
Is that one of those hirondelle type 2 speed drivetrains that they were just talking about in a nearby thread?
Looks great, really suits the bike.
That is nice. Too many alt-bikes never get the kind of decent finish they deserve.

The Betty Page is a stick on.It was the only pin-up that would fit the odd triangle of the lower tank.They also had a great tall slinder girl in a bathing sute that would look cool on a seat post or finder(not to over do it on this bike)I would fave prefered a bathing sute pin-up but they wouldn't fit.And I really felt like a "dirty on man" in that store that sell all the black Teeshirts and spikes to the kids,looking through all the pin-ups!But for a cool kustom bike I guess I'd just have to suffer!(smile)
And yes,it's the Retro-Direct 2 speed(back pedal)
I also agree that a lot of very cool Kustom bike get short changed in the final finish.My good friend,Jim Wilson, of bikerodnkustom.com is the one that really bore home to finish the details first---then mail him the photos---that works best and should really be a golden rule to us.Marry Christman and happy Kustom projects next year---sam
