    So I sit at about 99% done. Just have to put on some grips, weld a step up peg and find a seat post clamp I like and it's a wrap. These are probably the last photos I'll post on this thread .

    Not much taller than my other bike ,but has a smother appearance I think . More bike like and less scaffolding like.

    Awesome work, a very impressive bike! Really like the wheel paint/treatment, looks a million bucks!

    Dude, that came out so sick!!!!
    We need a video.

    You should really have this thread moved over to the Anything Goes section of the Rat Rod Bikes Build Off #8!!!
    It is a perfect entry for that category.

    Thanks for the kind words Kingfish. Will make a short ride video when time allows!
    If some one who has the power to move this to the build off would do so I wouldn't mind. Would be cool to see how it stacks up against some of the sweet sweet looking rides I've been watching over there.

    Thanks Rat Rod. The copper motief was a last min decision. Wish I could find a quality plating shop around here, I'd love to have a copper plated frame.

    Looks like it's moved. Now you just have to finish it by this Sunday and post a thread in the Finished section with final photos.

    Glad to see another tallbike in the mix. I was going to make my beast into a tallbike for this competition but decided to go a little different route. Nice job, see you at the finish line.
