Bike X1857

I all most forgot, I picked up a new springer fork for the cruiser bike. It is chrome and matches the ape hanger handlebars nicely. I will post some photos as soon as I get the scanner working again. I think I'll just have a few in progress shots as I can't bring the bike out for paint yet due to the weather.

This bike has been in the works for some time now, I think I bought it mid to late summer last year and I've worked on it off and on since then, getting sidetracked every so often. I will be finishing some of the strip work this week when I'm not working on a painting for the 15x15 show, so I should have a working bike in the next three weeks. Then paint, depending on the afore mentioned weather as I need to paint the frame outside. My paint scheme is simple, flat black and little else with red rims in the future as well as antique white spokes and maybe red hubs. Depending on how I feel, I may not have a chain guard on it, I don't like the original, and I may end up fabricating a new one in the future.

I guess my plan is to get it ride able and then worry about making it cool. Even in its unfinished state, I think it will look cool, sort of ratty.
