    Thanks! Those are LED converted, so they actually work too. (in case you didn't see it along the way in the build thread)

    Trip into Lowertown, St. Paul for some photos on this Top 10 June day. 70 F with light winds and full sun.

    Which one's your favorite?

    Number 2 or number 3 have best contrast to me. Sweet bike conversion!

    2, but I like how the flames and gear shifter stand out on 5.

    I actually prefer plain or out-of-focus backgrounds for bikes but they can be hard to obtain if the right sort of camera or location isn't available.

    Was thinking a plain background would help the flames stand out. Looks like a great bike and a great day for a cruise!

    I guess #4. The bike looks great in all of them though.

    Like the way the bike looks in 1 and 5. Flames look good in front of the shadow but the square opening is a little distracting. Looks cool on the rock.

    I sent Blackheart (my build off 13 entry) to my brother as a gift and not long after it arrived that "pesky Rat Fink" turned up on the valve stems...

    Took the Trans- RaT and Faded Glory to the A&W to mingle with the V8's and Straight 6's.

    When you go to the dump and get rid of the old deck material, and pick a couple of cool pieces!

    Wooden two wheeled cart. And a couple of what appear to be tiller wheels, or for disking up the ground.

    If I turn the cart into a 'sales' tool, it might even qualify for the build off...has two wheels, and is moved by 'peddling' ... :rofl:
