    Finally got this one painted. Repop springer fork, half inch pitch drive train. Hunting a few more things to complete it. Nice Greenway cruiser build.

    Turned out real nice! I like the rim color. Is that considered orange or a red?:)

    Hey Frank, really like your choice for the rim color. I was in home depot 3 times today buying stuff for my daughter's fixer upper home. Every time I see something done to a bike that I really like I write the idea down in a notebook or make a photo copy of it and place in a folder I have called"future plans". Your wheel color will be in that book. looks great.:)

    Haha, thanks Tinker! Actually had these wheels sitting around for a while, so decided to do something with them. Along with the light green Schwinn paint I had from my Panther project.

    Topped off this project with a beautiful Mesinger resto from Scott aka Rustjunkie.

    Had some issues with the three piece set up, so went with a skip tooth drive.

    And the orange Oury grips were cool, but got dirty too quick. Grip Wells instead.

    Never thought I would be into customs.......but right now, I'm doing a very mild custom 41 Roadmaster/ Whizzer. Like your color choices.......mine will be a black frame and yellow components ( fenders, tank, chain guard, headlight) Pictures to follow soon in the motorized thread.

    This bike looks great. I bet it would look neat with a whizzer engine kit.

    What issues did you have with the bottom bracket? I'm planning a 3 piece conversion on a CWC frame as well.

    Hello Ratina,
    Had a clearance issue with the drive side crank arm. Didn't really put any effort in to solving the issue, and went with the traditional skip tooth drive.
