    Yeah Jack, put grips on and call it a day!
    now I see why you've kept it put away when I'm over.

    Due to lack of time and mostly money I have to drop out I will never be able to finish the way I want it by the cut off All I have done is take it apart so maybe I will enter in the next build off and do it then if money and time allow. Sorry guys good luck to all who finish.

    Sorry Jack, I've offered up the kids but no cash buyers to help you out!

    Cool looking bike like it sits. I say go through the moving parts, add some grips and call it finished (for now) and keep it entered as is.

    Nothing says that you can't do it again later with your original plans!
