After two months of building, the Hot Rod Deluxe is finally done! :D A total of $53 and 63 man hours :shock: I started with a rusty 1953 Columbia 3 Star Deluxe and sanded it down to bare metal (a total of 21 hours) :p I always wanted a bare metal bike, so I thought this would make a nice candidate 8) I had many problems to overcome throughout the build such as the fork, rear wheel rubbing, and where to find all the parts. Now that it's all figured out, I have a good looking and riding bike 8) I appreciate all the feedback and help given to me throughout this project :D May the best bike win! :mrgreen:

This bike could not have been completed if it wasn't for two members :wink:
KZ1000(Rick)- GAVE me the whole bike
ifitsfreeitsforme (Ian)- GAVE me the rear wheel

Thanks again guys!!

Nice work little bro! Hopefully we'll see that bad boy in person sometime soon.

Great color combo, perfect stance and the detail work is top notch.

Good luck in the contest, you've earned yourself a top spot.
