i got a stand, 2 bars, a seat, sissybar, and a backrest, and a generator light. i know i know the blue bike is dorky. (with the seat that high you should see me get on/off it lol!) i cut almost a foot off it. cause i wanted to clear the shed door lol! for the blue bike, i built it for comfort. style was an after thought (as you can plainly see) but anyway here are the 20 or so pics i took.

i need to buy new cables, for the brakes.

Lookin' good Tater. In my book, comfort and performance are way more important than appearance.

that is tung lin, the headlight has like a million differnt settings, that i havent figured out yet, but it has 2 blubs. the back light and the gen are both clampos, with screws to indent the frame i guess to hold it its a screw with a point at the wnd, not threraded i bought it at bike world usa. the lght is made to go on the stem bolt, or the handlebar bolt. im gonna use a small sdcooter battery i have though, cause i couldnt find a good mount place, cause of the wierd back tire.
