Building it as an SS the first time, to see how light I can get with bad parts (that's a coaster rear wheel in the pic). There will be no mutilation though, since I do have a period correct 105 group I'm thinking of throwing on.

Agreed. Bourbon (or whiskey or scotch for that matter) should be room temp imo.

Brakes? Are for posers... nah I'm gonna try with just a coaster, it's not geared for speed 44x18.
LoL did a bunch more busy work sorting and organizing/putting away.. and some goofing with the dogs.

Good looking dogs. I'm glad I no longer have a barn. It just fills up with stuff.
