Default Re: Out of the shed and back on the road

The bars had no chrome left, so I painted them off-white. I like Rustoleum Almond. Found some bow pedals and installed the crank. Used some axle adjusters I found at Vet Stadium Cycle Swap.







Got my license plate back on. Waiting on an ebay vintage large reflector.



Dan's making some cool acorn axle nuts to fit the special 3/8''-26 Sturmey Archer hub. I'll install my speedo drive when I get them.

I know it's not original because I eliminate the tension bar front mount, but I found this way is easier to adjust without the motor tilting. I also did away with the two-piece top rear mount. It looks cleaner and the motor stilll slips right into position.








Then I make this little clip that bolts to the front of the motor and mates with the tab on the frame.

Got my speedo installed. Still need to do the cable and drive. I want to use this nice Persons seat but it just moved every time I sat on it. So I made a special seat post clamp with an extra hole for a stabilizing bolt. Works great.

Finally got my reflector from ebay, but it looked a little naked by itself so I made a bezel from aluminum I had at work. Looks better now.
