Run a piece of masking tape along were you want the decals then place them along the edge, you prob come out straighter

What ever you got to do to get out moven. My specialized pitch is like a covette with a honda motor in it right know but it rolls and rides, the covette parts just come in one at a time.

all thats left to do on this is to get some better wheels and a single speed conversion for a cassette when I change wheels.....gonna leave this one single speed....for now I took an old 6 speed freewheel and removed 5 of the gears leaving a 16t sprocket..... 32+16=2:1..... plan on getting another bike for trail riding...something used
