finished another restoration a little bit before Christmas. This was a pre war Shelby Cadillac. The client said this was given to her great aunt as a birthday present back in 1936. To celebrate her turning 90 this year, the client decided to have it restored. She did not want a era-correct resto; but rather a "Resto-mod". She wanted it to be functional as well as safe for both her and her great aunt to ride. Here's what we started with:
and here's the after, we added a newer style drop center wheelset, converted to standard roller chain, added a chainguard, reflector pedals for safety, fresh bars & grips, Delta Defender tailight, sweetheart sprocket. We also added a newer seat re-covered in leather. We straightened the front fork. I had hours..upon hours...upon hours of bodywork on this thing; but the end result was worth it. (sadly, I did not get the front light back in time from the platers for the reveal; but hope to have a pic of the bike with the light very soon):
ziggyboy: Also, I take back the apology I gave. The truth about yourselves is not popular, "Anywhere." I got a better term, this Shout Out section has been Guns-jacked. Lastly, lay off the hayseeds, Houndog, the gas is gettin' so bad, I have to plug my nose here.

ziggyboy: You hayseeds still bitchin about that education I tried to give you right wing morons? Get a life for Pete's sake! Cook some grits or something and give yourselves something to do besides jack jawing. Unreal! W. Bush or Sarah Palin can't even be this dumb.
