    I didn't know if I would have time to do final pics, but I managed to get out for about an hour today. I headed to my favorite spot for taking photos, the West Bottoms area of KCMO.

    Here's the link to my build:
    http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/mbbo-05-class-2-lil-scrapper-done.100355/

    The name "Lil' Scrapper" was born of the crusty Buzz Bike frame that I started with (which was ready for the scrapper), and an homage to my Dad who's mantra for life was "we could just...". The resulting insanity was usually a mix of shade-tree mechanic and country boy engineering, which is essentially what I have here: a mix of parts, and bits, and pieces from everywhere that somehow came together in a somewhat sensical way. At the end of the day this bike was a lot of fun to build and I can't thank Steve and the RRB community enough for giving this grown-up kid a place to play.

    Great work!
    Glass black paint and shiny chrome is a timeless look that always works so well!
    :thumbsup:

    Awesome build and custom touches! And I like your mantra,
    "RRB community, giving grown up kids a place to play"....
    I really think that last pic is your winner...the stance and light is perfect!

    Spotted this in The Oddjob award thread. Couldn't believe this was a class 2 until I went back and looked at your build thread. Turned out amazing!..:41::41:
