Looks great man, glad to see it.  Got a color in mind?

I'm thinking about saving up the money to have the frame "chrome" powdercoated. Ends up looking a lot like nickel plate.

As far as the tins... Bright. Not 100% on the color yet, but think 60s show bike stuff.

Of course this is me though so expect all of that to change about 40 times before it's done.

I dig the chrome look idea for the frame.  Don't change that. 

Wheels?

Not sure about wheels. I have a few options in the garage. Likely a 19/18 combo. Drum/drum spoked wheels

I like the way the frame sits mike, looks good... I dig the chrome powder too, I saw one with a little gray added to it that gave it a pewter/nickel look that was bad ass... been thinking about it for my triumph chop

Well I tried but I can't run no more
Tell Katie it's her that I adore
And as long as I love her best
I'm that much further west
