Default starting a new build US ARMY style

This is a new build I am doing. I started with a Schwinn beach cruiser and completely striped the bike of all components. I removed all the old blue pant and primer so I could start with a clean slate, and now I am painting it with od green. Next I will pull the covers from the motor and paint them the same green. Some how I have to find the stencils the us army used in the 40s. I will be using all steel rims with 12 gauge spokes front and rear with all black tires. The seat will be moved back 6in and ammo cans hung on the sides of the rear wheel for saddle bags. Thanks for looking at my new build and I will keep you posted with the progress.
