Post your finished bikes from the build off here
Ladies and Raters, I present, Eddie´s bike:
Head Badge in place, now she´s finished!
I learned a lot with this build, ( viewtopic.php?f=37&t=20727&start=0 ) my first bends, my first welds...
Best thing, Dad likes it and he is very happy with it!
Thanks for watching!

I think that lever-less skewers on the front wheel and seat post binder would complete the sweet retro vibe. Shave the horn bolt.
it's all about the bikes, man. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50053
I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
Thank you all so much for the kind words!
There are a few details I´m not so happy with, but time was against me. I´ll be able to dedicate more time to it when I get back, but for the time being she´s staying like this. (I really never finish a bike).
Couple of friends asked me why number 14. In case you also wonder, it was dad´s number when he played Basketball for a local team.
Thanks again guys!
Oh yeah! I liked the black/yellow sketch but I like this paint scheme is even better! Gives it a nice vintage look! Nice looking headbadge too! On to build the next bike, you must know more people who need a bike!! Looking forward to your next build!
"Dä ä aldri kört!"
very nicely finished!! love thne checkers on the underside of the fenders!

Thanx everyone for the kind words, I´m glad you like it.
Galt: I decided this colour combo is less flashing and goes better with my "building style".
I´m trying to figure out the way to make that design of head badge in metal, maybe coper or stamped aluminum, we´ll see... I´ve been looking at yours as a guide.
Necessaryevil: in regard to levers, I´ll be replacing the seat post one with something more appropriated (basically cause I found the original one among the parts box ) The front wheel is the best one I´ve been in contact with, so I wont be messing that up.
I´m glad you like the checkers detail, but truth is I would have never tried that without the inspiration given to me by the members of this great site, so I can´t take credit for it.
Thanx again for your support!
