sorry not yet, i had a last minute brainstorm and have been working on something new for the bike over the last couple of days so i guess i'll have to post one last update in the build thread before the final pics are taken. i'm headed out of town for the weekend so it will be next week sometime.

Re: ENGINE No.9 (complete!)

time for my last update(no really it's the last one, i swear!) :lol: .

one thing i always thought was cool was the hose turret that some fire trucks have so i thought No9 should have one too.

pictured below is the hose cradle i made out of front and rear reflector brackets and the handle is from an old tire pump. i'll paint it all black for the final pics. oh, and if you look close you can see some of the gold pinstripe i painted to separate and highlight the white and red.(my first attempt at freehand pinstripes)

the bracket itself is made from a fender support i had laying around. it neatly folds down out of the way when not in use.

so that's it, i'm done for sure this time and the final pics will be posted very soon. :D
