Default Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

Now that the fiberglass work is done I roughed out the shape to get it ready for finish work, then mocked it up on the bike.

Below, is an idea of where this is basically heading. It will have a different, older type seat, 36 spoke wheels with a front drum brake, Whizzer-type belt drive and the mud guards will either be moved down to meet the bottom of the fender or I'll shorten the fender to meet them. The rear fenders have mud guards, too, but on the back end for some reason. I'll move them to the forward end instead, behind the chain and belt. It will get a brass headlight and tail light and painted. Not sure what color yet.

Nifty filler necks/caps are going to look good. They're not vented so there will be vents at the front end of the tank/s.

In retrospect, it would have made a lot more sense to start with just a bare engine and no "kit" and a bare frame, too, but sense is in short supply here sometimes.
