    Here is a pic that I didn't get posted before the lock
    Heck I was lucky to get any pics posted
    I was so behind that I had to do some compromising
    so some detail stuff didn't get added to the bike
    also I didn't have time to make the seat attach quite the way I wanted
    It is functional but not ascetically appealing
    I wanted the attachment level with the tank but i ran out of time to shorten the seat post so that was another compromise
    and last where i wanted to do the photo shot closed early and plan B was to far away to make in time
    So I rushed and found a spot near my apartment
    So stay tuned as I will be adding some close up detail pics
    as well as some other location shots

    Great mix of parts and re-use of non bike items.
    Love the Dahon cranks. I need to look back at your build thread and check out that seatpost.
    CONGRATS!

    I had some time today before work so now that the seat post is in the correct location I did a quick photo shot at one of the locations I had originally wanted to use for the build off (I bet you can see why)
    I also threw on the bars I had gotten for it in the first place but had misplaced them so i figured now would be good to see how they look on the bike
    Enjoy
