    I am in no way a photographer, but I have looked at others work, then I did the best that I could. Here are the rest of my pictures that I thought were presentable.

    Do you think they would allow you on the other side of that fence to take some pictures? Great background.

    It doesn't look like they will. It is a small airport on the east end of town. The fence has a sign that says only airport vehicles allowed.

    Thanks, the bike fence belongs to a good friend. And he has allowed me to shop from it! Actually, there are parts on this bike that came from this fence. I may call the airport and check on going inside the fence. But, I have let a few chores slide while I finished this bike, and with good weather finally here, I better get some other work done.

    Sammi , I wish that it was mine. That place belongs to a friend named Dean Bell. He has actually gotten away from bicycles lately, working on some 55-57 Chevy, etc. I have tried to get him to sign up here, but I don't think he is much of a computer guy.

    Thanks man, it's funny now, but when I started this build....I thought this bike might be a competitor! After all, this was just a winter build off, not the "real deal" B.O. 7,8,9, etc. etc.... But, then a cool patina Bluebird shows up, an Indian board tracker, your Bhuzzard, a 49 Mercury, another cool Elgin, and so on and so on!!!! I have a sneaky suspicion that @chattymatty is going to double down with his unique builds soon .... and the list continues! WOW! These build offs have gone off the chart in skill, artistry, and workmanship. I'll be happy if I finish middle of the pack.

    Your bike really came together. Lots of different parts that all work well as a unit.

    Work some magic with the airport and get in there!

    I finally finished the spring cleaning in my shop. Here's a pic of Super-Sonic at home with the rest of the gang.

    Thanks man! When we bought this place, I couldn't decide whether to tear the shop down, or repair it. It had huge vines growing through the back wall and roof. It was major surgery to repair it, but I'm glad I did it.
