Nice to have those old project leftovers laying around.
Watch the ally doesn't get all galvanic and chew up the ?steel stand-bracket and spring. Grease should help.

I took it to work for the second run since putting it all back together. It's done for now as wife is about to pop out a baby. I reckon it'll get a custom made bobber style seat at some point. Anyway, here's a few shots. I'm pretty happy. Real comfy ride.

That's Beautiful!
I see a Harley style saddle with pillion.
A little sissy bar.
And probably just enough room under the pilion seat for a nice alloy 'battery/tool box'.
A Stingray seat would be a cheap option.
I love it.

Yeah, I've got enough old stuff to last my lifetime. Not a crazy, hoarder amount, but about 6 complete bikes worth. Gonna have 2 motored bikes so I can stay lazy while one is getting worked on. I have a super-clean no-motor bike. A beater no-motor for exploring wilderness. And a couple more for spare parts.

Aluminum and steel together can be a problem. I just finally got a frozen Al gooseneck (stem) out of the forks from an old curbside find. After I fix up a bike, it won't be a problem because I'm fanatical about cleaning them. They're garaged in the riding season and kept in the basement in winter. I'll still take precautions to make sure the aluminum reactivity doesn't cause a problem.

My word Cruise, that is one beautiful bike.

Congratulations to you and your wife on your soon to be status as new parents.

Thanks a lot Intrepid Wheelwoman. It's our second kid actually, which is why this build has taken so long!!
Thanks again. Kia Ora.

Well I haven't had a lot of free time lately and today I played hooky from the shop. The weather was so nice (hit 40 degrees) I thought Id take one of my new to me bikes for a ride, I grabbed the GT Chucker and went for a spin. The roads still had quite a bit of slush on them so we both got a little dirty lol.



Later in the day the roads started drying up pretty good so I grabbed the Felt and went for another spin. In retrospect it wasn't the best idea as I haven't ridden in four months and Im pretty dang sore plus I have a gig tomorrow, oh well it was worth it. Really liking both the new rides each offering a completely different riding experience.



Heres to warmer weather

Dan.
