Couldn't get my video to work, I'll play with adding it later but wanted folks to see that I actually rode it around today looking for places to shoot pics. All together about 20 miles today. It was the first time my shake-down run was also the one and only maiden voyage... It's officially my favorite bike!!!! It's comfortable, easy to ride and quite! I also really dig the way I can take the back wheel off and the chain completely without breaking the chain. As I said in the beginning, since I built this with a lotta junk I'd used for my first two builds, and I was paying tribute to Mr. Cash, I figure I'm already a winner for the amount of fun I'm going to have on this steed.

I really like how the chain goes above the chain stays so you never need to break the chain to remove it. And, the second picture from the top is my favorite. Too bad your internet froze up so you couldn't download them to the finished thread. Bike came out great. Lets go hit the boardwalk this weekend!

Thank
This came out awesome, nice work!
Thanks man! When your starting thought is, "what would Cash have done?" How can you go wrong...
I know most folks would probably have said he'd have gone black, but I really gave it some thought and in his elder years he was more stripped/open on his life and just raw to who he was. The seat cover represents how diverse he was as an artist and the many performers he recorded with and still learn from him.
Sorry for the long rambling response, I just realized I hadnt explained the aspects of the build as I thought each part out, I'm not good with that part of these threads.

I now I really wanted the pics to get on there but oh well....next year I'll try to account for the 10:00 deadline....just seriously glad I got any up in time...I also see Luke or another moderator was nice enough to combine the three in one. I was rapid firing them to ensure I got as many before the close because my internet kept freezing.

:bigsmile: Haha! You noticed that did you?
I sometimes help clean up threads by combining posts, it's the minor OCD kicking in... ;)
