Cool Bike. It has that Happy Circus Bike effect on me. I like it so much, I have Questions. What powers the lights? Where are the Batteries? Is that a Red Horn on the handlebars? Just wondering, because it has a bell on it and a light on the front and a backup light on the rear. What do you call those brake levers? I really like them. What is the zip tied bracket on the front hub do ? Is that a bracket to hold the Speedometer or a Drink Holder?
A lot of questions huh? But it does look cool. That seat is very interesting. Small Girls pan with a lot of springs. I would call it Curvy Girl Seat...
Thanks for Sharing the pictures.
Your right, a lot of questions. The LED headlight is battery powered from a box on the underside of the fork. That is a battery powered horn on the handle bars. In some of the pictures I have a whizzer speedo on the bars but later on I swapped it out for a cup holder. Starbucks is close by and it makes for a nice morning ride. The zip tied bracket on the front hub is for the drum brake. I had a ride coming up quick and didn't have time to make a nice looking bracket. The brake handles are for road bikes, I thought it would be a fun change from the traditional brake levers. I found the horn annoys people as I approach and added the bell to have that "he could be selling ice cream" sound that appeals more to the folks around here. Nobody refers to me as a Curvy Girl but the seat is a girls seat that I recovered in leather. Its a fun rider. It has 24" wheels with the thick brick 24x3 tires. I have been using swap meet parking lights from old cars and repurposing them on some of my old builds. I appreciate the questions and interest in my bike build. These are fun to build, ride and share.
Nice job! The Shelby " jimmy D" springer is tops. I like the look, and the ride is great. Nice looking bike and unlike the girl's Huffman and 53 Monark , the girl's Shelby springer can be cut down to fit a boy's frame.
