I’m calling it done. This thing kicked my butt. I replaced the seat post so it would be at a more natural level. Also replaced the cables with proper colored wire and at a more scale thickness. I chose the seat stripe without filling in the pleats. Looks kool.

Very nice looking bike, those came out a few years past my bicycle riding time.  What scale is this?  Is that a "racing slick" on the rear?

Looks very good. I built one a few months ago and have been thinking about doing another.

TarheelRick, Yes it is a slick and it is 1/8 scale. Thanks for all of the nice comments everyone!

Best looking one I think I've seen so far. Replacing the cables made a huge difference.

Wow! Looks great. I like it. I've have the Apple Krate version in my pile. Waiting for me to build up the courage to attempt to try building someday. I've heard so many stories about how hard these kits are to build. I'm more than a little intimidated by it. It's nice to see how beautiful your's turned out. I hope I do half as well when I build mine. Great job.
