I think I found exactly what I was looking for. It was at Bikemotorkit.com. But now I'm torn, 'cause I like the one you presented also, Barely. I have a feeling it is possible to go extremely vintage-looking with the Higgins build. The only visible plastic the bike will have in the end will be (maybe) the grips. I thought about making custom grips from PVC and covering them in sculpted foam, then using heat-shink tubing over that. That way I can make nice, really long, old-style grips.
