I can't wait to go night riding with this. I couldn't be happier with the way the light turned out.
You did a fabulous job with that old tail light that's for sure...

Trust me Miss Funk, I haven't been stretching my build out. There have just been a lot of details in the final assembly. Plus I had two biz trips over the past 3 weeks. I definitely made the most of this weekend. Glad you like the way it turned out.

I'll definitely get one that is focused a little better for my final photos. It's actually the lane entrance to my next door neighbors courtyard. My Urban Paint Booth just to the right of this on top of my trash cans.

Low and fun. Obviously not the most ideal riding posture, but I went for looks over function in that regard.
Well, now we need to see pictures of you riding it. Just be careful throwing a leg over - that seat back looks like it could hurt...

Man, that came out pretty well. I wasn't sure about the brown/cream on black, but it works. That tail light ought to stop traffic. Interesting, as we both started with essentially the same bike and used similar design elements, the two bikes came out very differently (as you expected). Fraternal twins?

You are right my brother from a different mother,,,,,,,, But mine came out better, right????!!! :p 8)

It has been fun following your build too and seeing the different paths we took. You have one sick ride!! We should have a little side comp. Whoever ends up with the least votes buys the other a set of the new RRB drooling eyeball stickers. Whatcha think?

I am very pleased with the color balance between the black frame and fenders, the primer red seat, tank, skirts, and flames, and the crème accent wings.
