    Well I cut that one a little closer than I would have liked, but better late than never. I have to admit I kinda burned myself out getting the bike done for last weeks Shiny Side Up show, and this week I was swamped at work. So instead of some subtle paint I went with some sticker bombing;) With the race look I was goin for I think it worked out pretty good.

    That being said, I want to apologize for not commenting nearly as much as I would have liked on all your awesome builds and threads during this build off. It was a very busy few months at work and I put a ton of time into this bike and was simply too tired/lazy by the time I would upload my progress at night. So I want to thank all of you for liking and commenting on my thread and encouraging me along the way:thumbsup:

    Cheers!

    I can only Imagine the hours that went into this build not to mention the hours just thinking about how to do it ! It looks great and the bare metal look is cool and no paint to chip , I like it ! I would buy a plane ticket to take it for a spin , just kidding ! But it is wicked cool great job I bet you could use a vacation now !!!

    Great design & execution. The seat & sheet metal work are standouts.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. This is one of my three choices.
    Well done,looks and sounds amazing. I've never had a motorized bike run or sound like this.

    Haha how right you are, I almost forgot what the sun looked like:rolleyes: And you'd be more than welcome to take it for a spin, thanks!:thumbsup:

    Thanks! I really put my heart and soul into this one, an homage to a life long love of racing and vintage motorcycles. And on a surprisingly small budget:grin:

    Thanks:thumbsup: Like I said somewhere in my build thread, from the get go I was trying to make a pedalable motorcycle instead of a motorized bicycle:crazy:

    Haha thanks! :grin:

    Thanks! Stance is big for me so I tried lots of aggressive lines:aggressive:

    Thanks:thumbsup: Much appreciated.

    Thanks Falstaff:thumbsup: You've actually really helped me stay motivated towards the end of the build while I was getting a bit burned out. Thanks for all the kind words:blush: And thanks for the vote:113:

    More like BRAAAAAAAAPPPP!!! :grin:

    Thanks bud! I just wish I had time to really finish it for the show. And thanks for the vote:thumbsup:

    Haha thanks:grin::grin:

    Thanks for the vote:thumbsup::grin: But I'm just lucky I have access to a really good gas welder at work...

    Thanks Kingfish:thumbsup: I really had a blast building it. I guess the years of trolling sites like BikeExif finally paid off.

    Not to sound like a Sandow,but....

    You're Welcome.

    All seriousness though,I do really like this bike. And I think you have motivated me to do a motorized build of my own, just have to make the time between work and school.

    Not only a motorbike, but it's the first one i've seen in ages that isn't either a direct Indian or early Harley tribute...

    (Not that I don't love Indians and Harleys, mind you :oops: )

    In other words, LOVE IT!!

    Haha thanks. You should definitely build a motorized bike, I built my first one while in college in my in my 3rd floor apartment kitchen. Rode it to class every day:thumbsup:

    Thanks, lol I cant recommend it more, definitely opens up a world of fun:crazy:. I got the sprocket from a broken mongoose bmx bike i got for 5 bucks at a yard sale JUST for that sprocket. Ive never seen one before so I had to get it...

    Thanks:thumbsup: I almost didnt make the vid:whew:

    Thanks! Ha ive already done the Indian tribute:rolleyes: Ive always wanted a sweet cafe racer too, so i went for a small one:grin:
