Nate, welcome to the forum family from a swamp in Michigan. Nice build, thanks for sharing.

Welcome from... central Illinois! I'll have to keep an eye out for the off chance I see that bike rolling around.

I'm really liking that bronze color. I've seen that color do horrible things to certain bikes, but it's the perfect choice here. Really fits that bike well.

Is that chain hitting the brake linkage? The line the chain takes looks weird if it does clear it.

Thanks. The chain at rest does touch the brake linkage. The chain tension is perfect and clears the linkage when I’m on the bike though. It’s never actually touched it rolling.
