    Thanks Funk! You are right, it is a massive bike, probably wont do one in this scale again, already sick of disassembly and reassembly just to take it for pictures... :roll:
    That barn is awesome! Everything in there was used at one time on the family's farm, going back many generations...


    :shock: Not going to happen! Tall bike? Maybe... Massive car tires on a tall bike? No! I value my life too highly... :wink:


    :D Exactly the response I hoped the bike would bring! Thanks PHK!


    Thanks Troy, and thanks for your encouragement and enthusiasm through the whole build!


    Thanks Geech!


    Thanks Steve! Those wheels look amazing in the photos, they look not quite that good in real life but very happy with how it all came out!


    Thanks Tater! I would love to see their faces when they read that post!!! :lol:


    Got some videos today, even tried to get a Klunker slide shot for a laugh, but the brake still needs more adjusting and bedding in, so is not up to skidding that huge rear tire at the moment (thinking about a switch to hydraulic) and I was too worried about getting seriously maimed in the process, still made for a good video! :lol:

    I will post them up to YouTube later on tonight...

    Luke.

    Way to go Luke! Funny how our builds were so far apart but both need Videos to show them working. I really liked seeing your turns on it as the wheels/tires lift on the edge. And your a big dude, that bike really fits you.

    Such an insane build, from how you did it to the actual finished bike! True devotion to the Build Off!! I keep thinking "of course an Aussie would put the chain on the wrong side." I could never get used to the light switches and the car wipers/turn signals being backwards during my visit.

    That thing is beyond awesome....

    One question, have you thought about possibly mounting disc brakes on it? duals in the front of course.
