    I have posted in the Colson Project thread, but wanted to start my own as well.
    Here's what I started with:

    Here's what it looks like as of today.
    I ditched the ladies pedals and added some Torrington 8s that I had on hand.
    Installed 50mm wheelset with Shimano Nexus 3 speed. Going to have to either reroute or shorten the shift cable, but just wanted to get it all together for now.
    Installed rack I picked up at ML.
    Also picked up a drop stand at ML but have to find a clip for it.
    Bought a guard that will be installed once it arrives.

    Got the chainguard today. Also rerouted the shift cable along the bottom of the frame. Although the cable is still a little long, I think it looks better this way.

    So far so good. What color are you going to paint it?

    I'm leaving it like it is as far as paint goes. Guess I forgot to mention its a rat rod.
    I have the drop stand for it, and have to figure out what grips I want to use. Maybe a different seat if I find one I like and possibly a headlight. Then I think it'll be done.

    Put the drop stand on today, now I need to find a couple small screws to install the clip. Didn't take a pic with the stand installed because it started raining.
