    Had a great time with this build and trying out new ideas. The bike rides like a dream. Had a fun photo shoot this afternoon with my son and his girlfriend. The stars of the show were the SF Woody, the Mississippi River, some great brick and cobblestone, and the downtown Minneapolis skyline.
    Again, thanks for all the suggestions, kudos, and comments along the way. It's been a great ride!

    In case you forgot what it looked like originally, here is the way it started out:

    Here is a compilation video of my build start to finish. My son on drums and his buddy Charlie on guitar a few years back as a couple of funky 20 yr olds. Enjoy!

    A couple of shots from the beach at Carver Lake, just a couple miles from my house. That's what you get when you live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes....a lake in every neighborhood!

    Well done OJ. :41: not sure what pic I like best. The bricks is cool with the drive side shot,but also like the close up.
    I don't think it's possible to get an angle that shows the rear sticker and the tank sticker at the same time, that would be cool.

    Make sure you keep this one around for a while, I wanna kick the tires one day. :thumbsup:

    Thanks Falstaff! And if kicking the tires means a test ride, by all means! I had a buyer in Florida, but I couldn't let this one go. Too much heart and soul wrapped up in it for me....

    Great job OddJob. Love how you incorporated your woodworking skills into this build. It captures that sixties beach party vibe better than Annette Fumin'-cello.

    Dig the vids with the groovy music too.:thumbsup:

    Good move to finish early in the north. I shouldn't be too far behind you.

    Looks good, glad to see someone else use filler in the normally open frame space.

    Got out for a ride to Carver Lake beach today. Little local lake only a couple miles from my house. (that's what happens when you live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes)
    Took some pics on this 59 degree November day.....highly unusual, but sweet!

    This bike really pulls off the 'Woody' wagon look for me, without being a literal 'over the top' build with things bolted on the try and 'transform' it into a car.

    Thanks Doc! The best medical advice I ever received was, "If it makes you feel good, do it!" Everything about this build came from a good feeling I had about it being what I was really trying to create; that vintage Woody wagon that I always wanted. Albeit, two wheeled....:)
