Dumpster Diamond is DONE!

Finally done with my bike, and just in time! Is it perfect? No. Is it finished? Not as much as I'd like. Is it done? YES! All things considered, my bike, Dumpster Diamond, turned out alright. And for my first ever Rat Rod Bikes Build Off, I think I did alright. I'd like to give a huge thanks to my family, friends, and everyone else who helped me bring this bike back from the dead!

Sorry for the lack of detail pictures. This has been literally down to the wire. As compensation, here are all the pictures I took of today's final progress:
