Many thanks to my MIL for spending nearly 4 hours with me today taking photos at three separate locations. We had fun driving around a one time booming industrial town, New Britain, CT looking for interesting backdrops. The three locations we used were Walnut Hill Park Rose Garden, a place dedicated to the women of New Britain who gave their sons and husbands to the WWII effort. LTC Construction's property which had some great old warehouses, and New Britain Business Complex, which was once the proud location of Stanley Works.

Here are what I think are the best photos:

The next two are a couple of my favorites:

I think that's it. I hope I haven't bored you with too much redundancy.

Best of luck to all the builders. There are some amazing bikes, and I am not worthy.

I'm glad that even with your busy schedule that you were able to get the bike done. I must add that it's a very cool build with great subtleties in the details and should do quite well in this competition!
