And I hopefully have an ugly as sin, puch head coming in the mail too. Little bit more rust and she'll be full blown rat-rod contender.

haha
Nothing wrong with that, and as for the Puch heads I like the way they look and run two of them myself.

Actually Dan,
I'm thinking something more like this with the cross bar removed.

Yep apes are nice, I have them on one of my bikes.

I have probably 8-10 bmx bars in the bike pile and was thinking of making up some bars from something I already have and just painting them black.

I do like the apes though, makes the ride much more comfortable for sure.

Worked on the exhaust pipe and the choke lever clearance issue. The choke lever now clears the frame tube... Now all I need to do is weld on an arm to make it useable again.

Choke in the off position.


Choke in the on position.

Thanks, I didn't know they could be found easily.

The extra set of handle bars I welded on top to not have to lean forward so much. The lower handle bars reserved for the fish adornment when at Burning Man came in handy anyway.
