1979 S&S Newport 26

Just Finished this Classic Beach Cruiser from The Good Ol' Days. 1979 S&S Newport Frame and Fork....Bike came to me in a pretty faded out condition. Sent the frameset to UV Metal Works here in Chicago for a fresh "SHEEN BLACK" finish. "Sheen Black" looks awesome because it's super shiny, but doesn't look too wet. To finish her up, I added an assortment of Ol' School parts with a couple of modern day pieces as well.
