My military bike project
used a frame very similar to yours, bikedad1. In my case it was a Greenline BC-106m frame. I then added a springer fork, a felt MP seat and some saddle bags from a tack supply place. Like semper's bike, mine gets a lot of attention (I've walked out of Walmart to see people taking photos of it).
Show us photos of your completed work! It's always neat to see another military bike!
