    Thanks brother. This time around I tried to build a classic that still reflected my style.

    Thanks bro. You know the rims gotta be straight when the tolerances are tight. The crimp tool did the trick, and the fat rim was actually easier to lace and true. I've been out cruising this bike and I love it.

    Great bike. Great patina. I love the fat/skinny wheel, the headlight, the blue dot taillight. Nice photography.

    Use what ya got, build to your strengths, and ride em'.
    Thanks for the kind words brother.
    Thanks man, photos make a difference in the final voting. I've seen great bikes go unnoticed from bad photos, so I'm always working on them.

    Great looking ride with a lot of cool cool details. My favorite styled frame to boot.

    Big and small together look great here. I love the look. Excellent work.

    Thanks! I like the big and little dragster look too. I think every bike I've built has it. This one has the biggest difference, that 2.4 tire on that 57mm rim really looks plump. I'm dreaming of a tank for it... Thanks again.

    Carl.

    I think your last pic is the best! Looks like a tough setting....for a tough bike!

    I'm making each one of my favorite BO bikes, the desktop background on my computer, for 3 days each. Your bike is one of them.

    That's a very nice looking bike. It has the rat and drag feel to it

    As always your build was so much fun and overloaded with creativity. There are so many cool contrasts you have successfully pulled off on one bike. Fat and Skinny. Dark and Shiny. What a great ride!!!
    CONGRATS!!!

    Thank you, I'm honored.
    THAT is what I was going for! Thank you.
    Brother, I'm still chasing after you. It's missing a few pieces, needed a tank and it's really the first one that I've done saving the original patina. But I'm happy with it. Glad you like it.

    Carl.
