Thanks guys! Tomorrow is the birthday party/bike giveaway. I'll try to snap a few pics of the exchange!

Here's my favorite part of this bike, the Continental RetroRide tires with reflective sidewall markers. A bit spendy, but way cool




Fender clearance was an issue all the way through this build. They just didn't build full fender bikes back in the day to accomodate our new balloon tires. Took some squeezing, but I got the clearance i needed.

Final pictures...

The cool reflective tires really show up in the camera flash



And the birthday girl and her foo foo dog seem pleased with the final results. And that's all that matters to me!
