    Thanks for all of the compliments guys and gals!
    I love the way my bike turned out and I was on cloud nine all day Sunday as I rode it around Savannah.
    Since then I have been a bit overwhelmed by the love it's getting getting right now.
    Thanks for all of the support and especially for the votes.

    You knock this build out of the park. Details, design and execution. Incredible! Bravo.

    Man I just realized the threads got locked before I had a chance to chime in over here.

    Beautiful job on this one!

    The turquoise/red scheme really works. Perfect blend of classy and flashy.:thumbsup:

    Thanks for the props!

    Same thing happened to me Chad. When the Finished threads were locked I went to the build threads. Since then, I have went back through all of the Finished threads that I didn't get a chance to compliment builders on.

    Before I took Flexy on it's last Savannah Ride, I took some photos with starsNbars and VerBoten.
    I am glad that Flex-Liner 7 is going to a good home. While BEER RUN was my first build on RRB, I consider Flexy my first full custom build. Have fun @Big Ape !!!!

    Congrats Kingfish.
    You've built an amazing bike and everything works well,from paint to soup can.
    I'd love to have this one in my garage,maybe even park it next to Flexy....Well if Flexy were in my garage.

    Miss Funk created a pretty slick 1st Place Trophy for me. It's actually a mini VerBoten. Thanks @Funkme !!!!

    That trophy is sweet! Fedex pushed delivery of Flexy back to Monday!! I am going to call the terminal Friday afternoon and see if I can pick it up there! I ain't waiting thru the whole weekend if I don't have to.

    Hey Kingfish, I've been on the road so I'm a little behind, but Verboten looks fantastic. Knowing that pictures rarely do justice to actual, I can only imagine how truly impressive it actually is. Question is...how many pictures did you take that didn't make the cut for posting???

    Thanks buddy! But I didn't have a whole lot of time to take pics on that last day between two storms. There may be a few that I have that could still be posted. I am not shy about snapping a photo.
