Thanks for the welcome! I've been looking around here and I've discovered some really nice bikes that have been built!
We'll I guess I'm committed to this now.... I scored a 1958 Schwinn Jaguar frame on ebay the other night!! I visited most of the Goodwill stores in my area with no luck. This frame should make a great base for my project!! I'll post some pics of it when it arrives later this week.
