Vintage 80's Shogun SS conversion

Built this bike for the gf. Goal was to maximize the chance that she'd use it as much as possible, by making it as pretty and comfy as I could, hence the easy gearing/upright position/oversized tires. Took around 6mos. to gather all the parts, then a few days to rattlecan it and put it all together, all just in time for her bday. She loves it, so hopefully she'll ride the hell out of it!!
