Handlebars custom made with Brass bar end levers, and cables running through. Rear suspension is a soft tail style system using an ultimate performance shock.

Also made some Brass Etched Pushrod Tube covers. My favourite part of this build was achieving the continuous line between frame and forks. This was done by designing a top cover that moves with the forks and follows the curve of the frame.
Frame and fork back plate are painted satin black, with some parts highlighted in Blue.
When I build I do work from a solid plan, just a rough sketch. This may change as the build continues. I’m a firm believer in the ” If it looks right, then it is right” way. I can often spend hours just looking at the build, trying to figure out some design element. All part of the process.
Thanks for looking, and Thank you Pipeburn for putting together this virtual Show in these crazy rimes.
CHEERS, NOEL CONNOLLY
