    Thanks,
    I dug through my cabinet, found a length of white half link chain. But it doesn't fit in my chain tool for some reason, I'll get it figured out this weekend and try to post a pic without a saggy chain.

    Thanks guys, I'm happy with this one. It rides rough, but looks cool.

    Luke, I've been wondering when someone would do the I am your father bit. :113:
    Good stuff.

    And again I do want to thank paper puncher for the photo edit, and my friend Carrie from my LBS for the grips.
    I appreciate all the positive feedback I've had on this build, it reminds me why I joined this site.:forum:

    Yea, I like the idea of seeing what kind of displays the local theatre has. Just haven't been feeling like going to the mall, I don't know which place Ioathe more, the mall or walmart.

    Wowzers! Makes me wish I spent a little less of my free time playing Star Wars Battlefront on the PS4 and more time making my bike as awesome as this. Great little details!

    :::edit afterthought:::

    Also pretty awesome coincidence we have two pop culture themed Apollos goin in the build off

    Thanks BS, it was a fun build.
    Two pop culture and three Apollo builds. Who would've guessed.

    So I drudged up the energy to make myself go to my local movie theater, turns out they never had any of the starwars props. Just a couple movie posters that didn't work well as a back drop for me.
    So I did an edit at the top of page one and have my final pics for this one.

    Thanks to everyone who liked and supported this build.
