Default Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

Trying to wean myself off a Volksrod forum a bit and spend more time here, shifting gears and projects.

Just put together a 26" Fito Modena Retro 7-speed and so far like it a lot. Flipped the handlebars upside down to make it look a little more old-timey. No motor for this one as it is for daily exercise.

But then I bought a Rover GT-R 26" beach bike that I plan to turn into something of a flashback to 100 years ago. It will have a MA legal 48cc four-stroke. I like the motorcycle-looking forks and I'm thinking of adding struts and painting them to match the frame. Also like the black wheels and spokes, short fenders (I might cut off the bobbed part) and the heavy upper tube "tank". I designed decals for the upper tube which I'll get a photo of when they arrive.

Well ... tried to post the photos but found out that since I'm a newbie I have to make three posts or more before I can link photos.

So here's #1.
