    OK, is it just me, or is this bike levitating? I cannot for the life of me see a kickstand in this awesome shot, his build thread nor finished bike photos. It escapes me how it floats upright while not moving...:praise:

    It's supported by sheer coolness alone.
    No, all kidding aside, you can see his kickstand in this pic here. No magic at all. Just great photos and a cool bike!

    It was hard getting my wife to let go of the bike and run out of the pic before it fell into the water. Took several attempts to get it with lots of blow-drying in-between shots.

    In all seriousness about 15 minutes after this pic was taken a bald eagle flew right over the bike at about 15-20 feet. No amount of scrambling, laying on the ground or constant snapping could make up for the weird angle and low light. So close to getting a picture of a lifetime but I am still very happy with this one.

    There it is! I looked at that photo, but still wasn't sure. If the King Fish or any other fish was sticking his head or tail out of the creel, it would be a pic of a lifetime!! :giggle:

    Got back in the shop tonight and made some progress on the 1st Place trophy.

    Mounted the axle to the star base. I'll screw the hub into the freewheel once I am finished with paint and I'm ready for final assembly.

    I had to go back to the MTB chainring in order to be able to have the headlight still work.

    Notched out the rear light section to accomodate the chainring tabs

    Mounted it into the spokes and turned the light on.

    Took it inside to show off to Queenfish

    I'l post another video shortly. I'm pretty pleased with how it's falling into place right now. Just a few more elements to go.

    Here is a video of what I have so far. It's a little off balance right now, but will be better when I am done.
