I want to paint it, and I do have a paint scheme in mind that will look great on it.

I'm also thinking left side drive now.

is there a point to doing that, or is it just for the coolness factor? And will you get disc tabs fabricated for the rear, or just use V's?

Just never did any build with a left side drive, and this one won't be any different, I need a tensioner for the frame.

Rigid fork hardtail with no tabs on either, I'm going V's. Apparently I have a thing for orange bikes(not the bike company.)
