Army styling

There was a picture of a bobber who looked genuinely old with cool saddle bags, olive tank and even painted rust i think.
Does anyone know what I am talking about?
Been trying to find that picture after i lost my phone on the ocean while it was in my pocket

Not this, no. It looked more like a green-ish kind of design.
This is also cool though.

I would also like to know wheat springer front end was used and if it was an easy swap.

It's something I would seriously consider doing down the road as I love the vintage look.

Cheerio,

Roy

I think this might be it? It was posted by member transientwolf and was painted with camouflage green spray paint (on my phone now so can’t drag & drop the image but hopefully this link will work)

The one Eisen posted with springer front end looks like it might have been from the Bike Shed show on Tobacco Docks end of May. If so, I can’t recall who did it but, maybe The Bike Shed people could point you in right direction for a contact.

This one is probably too shiny to be the right one, but it's got the army green thing going. I don't think it's my bike either, because I don't have any rust going on, but throwing a pic up just in case because it has the green and a saddlebag.

Anders, here's a picture from the link I sent above in case you couldn't open it. Not sure this is the one you're looking for, though.
