    DURALIUS- 1936 Wards Hawthorne

    That’s right, there’s two! I made a bunch of hints along the way but nobody caught on. Just to be clear, this is not two entries, only the men’s bike is up for the vote. The Ladies bike is simply a prop or doodad! Detail shots in the next post. Thank you for looking! Build thread here...

    Well, I think I made it- Half an hour early instead of half an hour late like last time I entered. Had to shoot too early since it was the last day but I think everyone will get the idea. I'm going to go ahead and publish this now! Thanks for looking!
