Wow! Your build got a thumbs up from the man himself! I can imagine his calendar: Continue with executive appointments to administration, meet with foreign heads of state, check out Jasnook's bike build, lunch with Melania...

Looks real clean. Is it me or did you mount oversized tires on those 700c rims?

Thanks, is getting there.
Tires are 700x38. Their the stock tires that came on my 2015 Schwinn hybrid, same bike the wheels came off of.
I'm debating over 28s or 32s once I get the bike on the road, and money permits.

Just one project tonight so far tonight.
Cleaned up the shifters and mounted them on the stem.
I sanded the casting marks of the shifter arms before I polished them, so they look better than new.
I'm really happy with how well these, and the stem cleaned up. I wish I could get all the parts to look this well, but unfortunately some of the chrome on the steel parts was just too far gone.

Making progress, saddle, stem and shifters mounted.

Next up, clean/polish/mount cable guides. The one is pretty crusty, but it'll definitely look better.
