I know I say so my self, but the project is coming together nicely. Everything on the bike has come from the dark recesses of my shop space--wheels, tires, tubes, crank, all of it. I've done better than I thought I would, actually, as even those stretches of cable and houseing tentatively hung above are made of scraps and discards. I have a saddle waiting to go and both grips and pedals waiting in the wings. I think I'll be able to field the parts-bin utility bike having only purchased a three-dollar rear shift cable.
I have more to say about parts, compromises, and adaptations, but the update, for now, is that the project is viable. The timeline may be off, but it's going to happen. I hope your projects are all proceeding apace . . .
