    If anyone sees a pic they think should be up top let me know. I like the Six Pence Pub one. Cool backdrop but the bike still stands out.

    It's yours Miss Funk, but unfortunately I would have to charge you $10,000 in shipping. :bigsmile:

    Thanks for the compliments! They mean a lot coming from you. This has been a fun bike to build and another spectacular time was had playing with bikes with my build brothers and sisters. It don't get any better than this! :banana::rockout::banana:
