So we have finally bought a house, so there could be some lull in the bike progress while we renovate, but in the meantime I've been busy!







4 copper wine goblets (left over from Isabel), 4 glass map loupes, some paracord and a few LED rings...

Very cool. I never thought of using para cord as wire conduit before.

I can't wait to see the finished product. The handlebar and gauge set up looks gorgeous. Did you get those reverse brake/clutch levers or just set them up yourself? I always thought they had a slick look to them.

Alright! So, finally some actual progress! A non-nadgered head (previous head turned out to be cracked) and the bottom cases all back together with new bearings throughout.










Things will still be slow going for a while, we're off on our honeymoon in a few weeks, then it's house renos... but I'll keep plugging away at it while I can...

What type of paint are you using for the case? Dig that texture.
