VOTING IS OPEN.






There are three places to vote.

1) The best first place to vote is at http://www.lowbrowcustoms.com/show-c...mp-voting-2017 here you can see all the bikes and read a bit about them, then choose a name and vote for it! My name is Christian Newman, the picture they used of my bike is pretty old.

2) On instagram check out @show_class_mag and comment "vote" under the picture of my bike (my username is @ctnewman and the pic they used is old)

3) This online poll is hosted by the Show Class. https://www.poll-maker.com/poll1009690x35F8B500-42

Vote once in all three locations. It can be for me or for a competitor, I just appreciate any participation.
Thanks!

I wish I could vote again in the category of most articulate, funniest, and most painstakingly documented. As it is, I'll go vote for you now.

Last I checked it was you and Catlin in the head to head lead. You were up by a few.

PS...

Everytime I see your posts or IG stuff, I hear Jerry Seinfeld's "Hello Newman"... as one of the voices in my head.

I'm sure I missed it, but what is the upright spring on the kicker cover?

I hadn't noticed the lacing pattern on the front wheel before. Somewhere back in your thread, I'm sure there are good side-on shots of it. Do you recall what page? It'll take me half a day to admire my way through the whole thread.

Got a few things done the past few days..

Got the brake mounted, which involved making this fixture:



And then making polished parts to weld on to the frame. The welds came out really nice but I don't have a picture.



Then the caliper mounts to those. I know what you're thinking, how do you adjust for chain stretch, well, it's not simple, and it will involve shims. I know it's not the best solution, but it was the cleanest, and it's not like this is exactly a miles bike, so I don't intend on having to deal with that too often. I am using a Beringer caliper, which looks really cool, although I have a chrome one on order... interested to see which blends better.





I also made a kickstand. It's made from 1/4 plate, cut out on a bandsaw, then welded and sanded. The bevel in the top, which is hard to see in pictures I put in with an angle grinder, I'm surprised it came out as well as it did. The spring mechanism is a stainless gas spring in compression. Still operates like a normal kickstand. The gas spring is hidden when it is retracted. I think I will make a nicer shoulder bolt, though.









Here's a little video showing more:

I also foamed the seat. Initially this is how it came out:



But I wasn't too crazy about that hump. So I cut it off and made a new one. Good thing this gets covered.



Thank you for all that have voted (especially those that voted for me). Tomorrow is the last day of voting. I encourage everyone who hasn't already done so to go check out the bikes and vote for someone! There are some great bikes being built.

There are three places to vote.

1) The best first place to vote is at http://www.lowbrowcustoms.com/show-c...mp-voting-2017 here you can see all the bikes and read a bit about them, then choose a name and vote for it! My name is Christian Newman, the picture they used of my bike is pretty old.

Talking Re: 1940 SS Knucklehead: People's Champ 5 Build"

I think we need to start voting for someone else just to make it a little more of a competition.
Awesome work can't wait to see it finished.

Modified my new cycle electric voltage regulator. Got the idea from LeBeef, tried to send him some money for "the inspiration" but he refused. Cool guy!



This is what his look like. I think it looks a little cooler, but I couldn't just copy it, so I had to com up with my own design.
