Default Re: FNG here. Bend, or:)

I'm committed to the Schwinn project now. I was concerned about having just a coaster brake but I threw down on this (not my photo, but I am doing the same springer fork): Sturmey-archer x-fd image by orderodonata on Photobucket

I am relacing both front and rear wheels with 13 gauge spokes with red spoke nipples

And one of these to cap off the rear:

I figure, Throttle, bell, and front brake on right. Left side of the handlebar will have the three speed and clutch. I also got a mirror for the left.

I am painting the Skyhawk engine red on black with ceramic engine paint. Then dremelling off the edges of the cooling fins to match the chrome.

I dig the euro license plate on the Luftwaffe bike so since I am running chrome full fenders, I may look for a cool plate to mount. We'll see.

What do you think?
