Default was a Huntington...

My ride is coming together. As I mentioned in a previous post, the lines on the Micargi Huntington had great appeal to me. I was apprehensive about bike quality at first, but this one certainly seems to have a sound frame. All else can be tweaked. I put a springer fork on, and flipped the handlebars over. The fuel tank WILL be painted black (I like black). And I intend to fabricate a sort of "psuedo-tank" for the open space below the top tube and above those swooping rails. It'll be a pair of opening panels that'll give me a place to put the CDI and lighting system controls out of the weather. Being that my chainstay seems out of the way of the chain, I MAY dispense with the "tensioner", but I want to see how much stretch I have to worry about first. And, if there's any money left over, a set of all-white tires would really complete the look, don'tya think?
