Manton and Smith Continued

The Manton and Smith is starting to come together. I also added the smaller size coke bottle grips and a 1950s era "brown letter" Sturmey Archer shifter.

The top sports a white "dart" design like the frame, and the lower edge of the crown lug is outlined in matching red. I did some detailing on the fork crown to further tie it into the design. The bracket/fork bolt is in place and just needs to be cut to length.

There is still some adjusting on the wheels/axles to do. But the wheels seem to fit nicely.

I mounted a "universal" McCauley chrome chainguard. It works well with the fork and the theme of the bike.

It's not done yet, but getting there.
