Is it just me or is that stem installed way higher than the minimum insertion depth? Looks like I can see the top piece of the wedge peeking out over the headset.
Today I finally got a freewheel for the Fuji (been single speeding on a 6-spd cogset up til now), put an Ideale and some creme tires on it. I still don't know about the tires. The back one is lumpy so maybe that's a sign to go back to black. Reckon it's time I remove that reflector and figure out my chainring situation. I'm thinking I'll put a bash guard on in place of big ring, maybe make my own bash guard by grinding teeth off an old wasted big ring.

If it's a decent ride, enjoy it.
Your rear brake pad is seriously misaligned.
Been zipping around on my Centurion cruiser lately. I found this build to be very well suited for riding in my area.
I hope I didn't sound like a jerk, I'm just suggesting he adjust his brake pad to prevent wearing out prematurely. It's not exactly a trivial detail.
Gotta ask: what was on the sandwich?
