    Despite not having the wheelie bar I think it's a great looking bike! I hope your issues are resolved soon. Happy New Year!

    Thanks Crash! It seems that my step father is doing much better today, although he has numerous health issues at this point. Not to kiss rear or anything, but I consider you a bit of a muscle bike guru! So, I take your comment as a high compliment!
    Happy New Year!!

    Lot's of pumped up muscle in this one! Have liked it from the start, good job wrapping it up even with the extenuating circumstances. Well done!

    Sometimes the proportions of big boy muscle bikes don't flow well, but you pulled this one off very nicely! The seat and sissy bar placement are the key I think. Great lines and proportions and I love the tank and shifter on there.
    BRAVO!

    Thanks OddJob! I am pretty happy with it......although...Carl has me wondering what a white leather solo saddle would have looked like on it!:39::39:

    Thanks buddy! It took me a little while to warm up to the seat post being directly under the tip of the banana seat, but it grows on you.....I think.

    Great job on this one. Love the way it turned out. I was worried about the seat but the way you mounted it was brilliant. Really looks good.

    As for the wheelie bar...man that would be a lot of Schwinn to try and wheelie..:D

    Thanks Luke, yeah I knew that I wanted to use the tank all along, but it sure required some extra work to figure how to mount the shifter!

    Thanks Chad, the seat did require some redneck engineering! I still would have liked to try out a "whamo type" wheelie bar. Maybe that will go on the build off bike that I didn't finish for BO10.
