    Love how you were able to bring this one back but still keep all the age on it. Looks great.

    Great job, this one cleaned up awesome. I love the patina and the accessories fit well while not detracting or making it feel cluttered.

    Ed, you nailed this 'vintage clean' build! The 'trust in rust' motto came through as you kept the ratty in rat rod on this one.

    I still drool when I look at that saddle rat-ification! :41:
