I'm not real sure about the 14 tooth sprocket yet. It will pedal easy though. Kinda like the second style better though. Opinions?

Wow!
It's looking magnificent!
I love how symmetrical the truss bridge is on the frame.
To me, this is the definitive characteristic of the arch bar bikes.
Without that symmetry, they just look like a hastily added afterthought. With it, they look like a well planned design.
Call it, Feng Shui?
I don't know, but that's just me.
Great looking project!

Patric mentioned Hudson, not a center drive bottom bracket so Merkel is out. Would love to find that o.g. badge!
