I made it! It has been raining all day long here, so I put the rest of it together in the rain and got soaked. I think it would look 1000 times better with the checker wheels but procrastination got the best of me and I had to slap these coaster wheels on it just to get it finished and ridable. I took it for a spin in the rain and it rides great. I also never finished the covers I was going to use for the welds on the handle bars, and I wanted to make a layed back seat post to get the seat further back but oh well. I will probably give the checkers another go and do all the other details I wanted to do later. I think it came out pretty neat for a bland diamond frame bike and It was built for under 30 bucks, but I don't think it compares to the quality and creativity of most of the other bikes built in this contest.

Sorry but I had to take the pictures under the carport because I didn't want to get my camera wet and I couldn't find a tripod to use to get better night shots. If we are allowed to post better pictures later than I will, if not here is what I got.
