    I assume these are flat Lobdells, they’re pretty rough though.

    It’s finally off the stand. Got more done recently but the weather’s been crappy. Got my seat sent out and waiting on my A.S. Stem bolt and wedge. Got a 2 speed set up for this bike, but it’s not gonna work. The bigger sprocket won’t fit under the back of the chainguard and I didn’t have the heart to cut an original guard, so I’ll have to find another project for it. 7A92E7DF-D226-4E62-91C6-43B87F9CEE90.jpeg 753F54CE-D6E2-4D96-9154-3582E90DC8F6.jpeg 8536A109-934D-4D62-933F-55E8A921FEA8.jpeg F4AB856A-9650-4D56-9A73-3005C94C24ED.jpeg 5C43A768-A869-4321-98F4-853A529230F8.jpeg C06551E4-7E75-46C0-9B92-FDDDFC203AAB.jpeg D83C99A1-7D74-4E47-92C0-2E563A25092F.jpeg 8394B529-B0CE-46A9-9B17-860B673A4F67.jpeg 9D4E8174-2990-45DE-9819-8960F241A6B6.jpeg E4B246B7-986C-457A-8B6B-825CF86E12AD.jpeg

    Great job, Rusty ! I'm a big fan of the tubular truss rod fork with truss rod holders. Good thing the the fenders weren't missing or beyond repair; they're not the easiest fenders to find. Enjoy the ride.
