That is too cool.  And you make it look easy!

I had a Raleigh Chopper... actually went through two of one because my original orange one got stolen. I should look into modifying that Schwinn into this...  the Chopper is all straight lines. Only challenge would be to make the seat!  Hmmmm...

Thanks y'all...much appreciated.

Work and fishing have taken up all my time.

(grateful for both)

 

A little update on my 'lil project.

 

Using my trusty bottle of Ambroid Z-Mask,

I slathered it on the handlebars,

chain/guard assembly and the crank/pedals.

 

Clear bubbled on me ....a light sanding is in the works.

anyhoo..here are some pixs

Not to steal your thread here. But, I thought others might like to see what the bike looks like built straight out of the box. No where as nice as yours. But, still I'm pleased.
