You know kingfish, it's not the most comfortable bike to ride, but if it looks good...
It's a lot like women's shoes. :D

Functionality and Cool Don't always go together. It is much better to be cool though!! Looks Great, really like that head light!

Thanks ya'll!
Got the Southern Flyer loaded up and about to head downtown to the monthly First Friday street festival and car show. I'm hoping to get my final photos but it my not happen with all of the people there.

Meanwhile, I've been playing around with my driveway shots...

Just got back from the Gadsden First Friday festival and had a blast! The bike got a lot of interest.

Once a month the city shuts down the street for 6 city blocks with hundreds of cars, live bands, food venders and thousands of people!
Here's a picture next to my Type 2.



There were several rat rods there.



Mine was not the only bike present, but it was the only vintage one! :D

Thanks guys.
Got up early this morning for the last of my photo shooting and there was a nice fog outside, so I took the bike out to a shady lane close to the house and took a few. All of my other locations are urban settings so these don't really flow with the rest but I did want to post at least one here.



All that's left now is to pick through the dozens of pictures that I took yesterday and today and post my finished thread! This has been fun. :D

No surprises that this sweet build is getting respect in the polls. This bad boy is definitely a contender!!! Congrats on a wicked ride my friend!

Cool time lapse and cool song. 8) How many images did it take ?
Thanks ya'll.
Glen, I can't remember exactly, but it was somewhere just under 750 images. I was disappointed when I played it back and discovered that the framing was off to the right a little. There's a section where the tail light gets installed that's out of the frame. Oh well, not bad for a cheap game camera.
