    Didn't see anything like this, so I thought I'd start it off. If it already exists, mods please remove.

    In this thread I would like to see links to, or pictures of, cool things that people are doing in their build off threads. With so many bikes, if is darn near impossible to follow along with every build, but it would be cool to have one place to call out if someone is really doing something you think is cool or innovative, so others can check it out.

    One rule: YOU CAN'T POST DETAILS OF YOUR OWN BUILD HERE! That's what your own personal build thread is for, right? This is for saying "Hey, check out what Joe Schmoe did with this wheel" or, "Hey, did you see what Bubba did to his frame? here's the link..."

    Since I am building a bike, there's no way I can follow what everyone else is doing, but it would be nice to check in on a summary thread once a day and see what's really attracting people's attention.

    "Anger Management" apparently hasn't kicked in yet...or maybe this is keeping him from doing something more rash to something else?

    Continuing the "danger" theme, "Sinister" by Sinner 4 promises to kick rational behavior in the face:

    Smoopy has already done a few cool things. I especially like this skull, but he has another on his rack, and he also patched his tank with old PBR beer sign metal.
