Dressed up the ends of the sissy bar with some of the silver salt shaker caps.

I am very happy with the Electra stripes. I couldn't resist pretending like I did them, but if you notice, I did make the original post with a winking smiley.

I can hardly keep up with all these doodads. But I must say the salt hammer caps are a perfect fit on the sissy bar & the spring was meant to be , nice fit .

I spent way too much time building up the More Cowbell bell. It does make some noise, but honestly it's more of a cool looking doodad than anything.

It was fun posting all of that today. To be honest it was brutally hot with a heat index over 100. I needed to space of the courtyard to install and look at the pieces, but I was drenched in sweat the whole day. I would take breaks to sit in front of my shop fan and post the latest update to the doodad channel.

Well I finished Rockafella around 730pm tonight and took it out for a ride while I still had a little bit of light left. First time out with @karfer67 's Felby bars and they not only look incredible, they were in a perfect riding position. I LOVE THESE THINGS!!!

I went for a good 2 hour ride playing around with some dusk photos.

I made my way over to Bobbies Diner just for @OddJob because he had said he couldn't wait to see this fifties build in front of it, so here you go Lee!!!

The name of the musical at the Savannah Theater is "Return to the 50s" which is more than appropriate for this build.

Had an awesome time today riding around for over 3 hours taking pics and talking about my "old bike" with tourists and locals. Met two French families, one Belgian, one German, and one French Canadien. I love my city!!!!!

Spent the second half of the day working and taking care of something at one of the new rentals. I have a lot of pics to go through, but I will get Rockafella posted up in the Finished section on time.

I can't wait to catch up with all of the finished bikes too. It's been another fun build off! Thanks brothers!!!
