You guys are wizards! Love the mods and the re-purposing of the items which car builders do quite often! Beautiful workmanship and the seat I know people will be doing that little trick for a fix on their old seats! Beautiful final result!!

Thanks for all the "likes" and comments. A thumbs up from your peers is better then a show trophy any day of the week. Yes Jim has been watching the build from the start. His input and advice has been a major assist on this build. Plus the TRM tank is first class quality. At the show we thought we were the only two entries in the custom bike class. Marjie and I were joking who would beat who. We did not notice the one other bike in the class. Here's a pic of my bike and Marjie's Elgin. In the background is the winning bike.

We didn't want a rack on the back but liked the ribbed design. So we joined it with the chain guard.

We had to weld the chainring to the cranks so to remove the pin that holds it. Also I used modern wider one piece cranks and sweet heart chainring.

I think the saddle is a 1930s Persons. I took the cover off a $35 cruiser saddle. It was a single pan saddle so I modified a bottom pan from a dual pan Messinger saddle. That way it was easier to stretch the cover and make it conform.

I just love how the seat turned out GOOD JOB!! I noticed you have a couple other seats on the floor to the left I would like to buy one for my old schwinn spit fire. If they don't have a home would you be willing to part with one? Please let me know. Thanks and Ride ON. Razin.

What kind of chain did you use? Is that not some sort of implement chain. Very cool look to it. NICE CHOICE!! Razin.

My buddy Curtis and I enter the bicycle portion of the Sacramento Autorama almost every year since 2010. This year we decided to do a TRM convertible tank on a 48 Monark Deluxe. I figured I wouldn't ruffle to many feathers because it was a girlie.

I went through the standard amount of parts switch/mock ups,...lots.

We ended up dropping the skirts. We thought they interrupted the lines.

Now the fun stuff. Curtis is a very talented fabricator, he did all the fab work. He's great to work with. "Hey Curtis lets put a bracket on the chainstay so we don't have to use a strap", "okay".

We cut up a repo horn tank to place under the TRM tank

Removed the bottom support bar for a cleaner look.

Would you be willing to part with one of the seats you have on the floor? I'm looking for one for a Spitfire custom project. Thanks and Ride on. Razin.
