Finally riding a big boys bike
I'm not going for an exact clone of the 1917 catalog picture, But rather using my favorite elements from the catalog picture, and the couple of pictures of actual bike examples I could find. One of the things I did want for this build was a pair of Tiller bars like shown in the catalog picture, and the original cross brace bars were rusted through and unusable. (They are still getting used on a yard/barn light project). While I was waiting on the bright work to come back from the plating shop I was lucky enough to find a repop set of tiller bars from our fearless leader SM2501, and they were already Nickle plated.
