And now the final transformation below...Took a while to get from A to Z but the paint will be all the better for it because it had a lot more time to cure. Scott should have his trailer for his kayak soon and with the ponds quickly melting hopefully i can get some pics of this ride in action.
Here she blows! performing its intended purpose up in Jefferson, NH. wicked middle of nowhere.
To all those counting this is a 1976 Raleigh Sprite in Lemon Yellow. Not so much lemon as rust nowadays but all that will change. I think Benny is going all black. **insert quote about going black now**
And here is the 100% complete final edition. pretty damn sharp, and even more so considering the 'before' pic.
And here it is complete. got the new wheels yesterday and threw them on. They look pretty good. black rims would have been better but you can't beat the price. Chainline was perfect with no tweaking and everything else came together nicely. Pretty soon I'll post a pic of the art I am getting in exchange for this bike. Word on the street is its gonna be EPIC.

this is my first completed project. Finished the Bumtaxi a couple of months ago. its a 1959 or '60 Hawthorne Cruiser. I bought it for $10 from NORM, my friend Scott's neighbor/landlord. He loves dumps apparently.
Thats about it. A really ghey site where I post projects that Im working on, more so that if the two people who are interested in what Im building ask me about something, instead of telling long stories I can just give them a website to go checkout.
I'll start a few threads about my current projects soon...
