As I’ve mentioned, I was going for a part deco, part euro, part board track, and all rat rod creation. There is no paint on the bikes except some copper to cover the red stripe on the hub! Polished aluminum, polished steel, fresh copper! Both bikes were cobbled together from 9 different Hawthornes and Silver Kings. Modern wheels tires, bars and chains. Drilled 1936 copper pennies throughout.

I will never try to build two bikes in one month again! I’m typing this 29 minutes before the deadline! I hope you like my entry and thank you for your consideration.

I just want to thank everyone for all the compliments and likes the last couple days. Means a lot to this guy. Especially since I'm mostly just a lurker the other 8 months out of the year. It seems like this might be a record number of finished bikes, too. Awesome! I'm glad this little niche of people had something to do to take their minds off of everything else for a little while. Great builds! Great people on here!

Elegant is the first thing that jumped into my head when seeing these for the first time. Clean, simple, beautiful... not easy to do.
