It was a great backdrop for VerBoten, so why not Rockafella too?
My childhood hero.
Queenfish asked me to take pics that show off the seat. This also shows off the bars and tank well.
Another brilliant build. Love the photos. I think you have a great eye for photography as well cycle building.
Gotta have a fountain pic
No Wet Dogs Allowed
Here is another overhead shot for Queenfish
These were fun to take.

Dumps like a truck truck truck...
I even got this shirt for my final photo bike ride.

Who else is worn out, but still pumped up with adrenalin of another Build Off finished?
YOU DID IT BROTHER B. ANOTHER MASTERPIECE. I REALLY LIKE THIS BIKES FLOW AND COLOR. KUDOS MY FRIEND
Thanks brotherman!!! How many does this make for us?
I think we are up to 7 that we have completed together! Can't wait to hit Philly again and talk bikes and drink beer with you.
If you make it down to Savannah, we'll hit up this PBR dive bar "Pinkie Masters"
I took Rockafella out for a ride this afternoon and had the coolest experience. Earlier in the park, a nice Asian tourist asked to take some pics of my bike.
Later, I was waiting at the fountain for someone to come by that could take a ride video for me. It turns out that him and his family are visiting from Hanoi, Vietnam. This was too cool since we were in Hanoi when the Build Off started!!!! So here is the ride video he did for me. You can hear them talk as I go around the fountain. (Those are loud insects you hear in the background).
Afterwards I asked if they wanted a picture taken and the guy asked if they could include Rockafella in the photo. How cool is this!! Only in Savannah!! I love my city!
He was having so much fun sitting on it, I told him to go ahead and ride it around. Even though the geometry is a bit stretched for him, he rode it like a champ around the fountain.
I got my OddJob Certificate of Autho-Rat-Zation today. Thank you Mr. Job for the honor to be included as an OddJob Award Weird-Oh. What a cool prize too!!!!
I still think the grips are what pulls this whole build together.....

I agree brother!!
That reminds me. I never did put together my parts list and thank yous. I not only love the color match of these grips, but the styling on them. They look awesome on the bars and the electra leather tassles fit perfectly. Thanks again.
