Thank you, Dooly. I won't actually travel very far. But I do ride everyday. I'm a car avoider.
(Though lately I've been driving more than normal because I've been suffering from gout (of all things). But that's a whole 'nother story.)
But it'll get daily use, that's for sure.
Here's another 'mock-up' pic. I'm not sure it's much different from earlier ones I've posted.
But it gives a notion of what the bike'll end up looking like.

The basket is hanging kinda odd. That's because I've taken off a couple of cargo rack pieces plus the basket support struts and painted them. They're now hanging up to dry.
