Well I still have to tighten the leather grips onto the handle bars but I got excited and started snapping pictures anyway. Tomorrow I will take the official shots but here is the bike basically finished!

I'll start with the bike next to the original sketches and tank mock ups as I prepared for the CAD... it was a lot of time in front of a computer getting the shape exactly as I wanted but well worth it.


And here are some additional shots...

Now that is one sweet ride. I love the tank, the raw frame and overall very cool. Nice!
Thanks a lot! It isn't what I originally visioned for the build off but I am very happy with the way it turned out. It was my first time building a bike so I learned a lot that will help me for next years build off.... so let the brainstorming for the next bike begin!

Final pictures of the bike will be taken tonight.

Awesome bike, quite possibly the best tank in the build-off...

Luke.
Thanks, that really means a lot! Hopefully this was just the beginning... I'd like to get to the point where I'm making something I can reproduce easily and share with anyone else in the hobby. I've already started thinking about ways I can modify this design to be a better for a mold and easier mounting to the frame.
