Steve, Thanks for the recognition on the RRB Facebook page with the "RRB Bike of the Day" honor for Firewing. That's pretty darn cool!
EDIT: Or as one person from Germany posted on a share of the RRBBOTD - "Supergeil!" - Super Cool :)

this ride inspired me in a lot of ways, back then i always turn down the idea of a nana seat on a cruiser, but thanks to this ultra cool bike things are now different on me.

Some final shots of Firewing a couple of weeks ago.
Time to box her up for her new home.

Really great bike and love the pictures! I recognize a lot of the places in Savannah from when I vacationed down there awhile back. Beautiful place.

Thanks Jane! I love showing off my city. If you or any other RRBers are ever in the area we'll hit the streets!

Thanks OldSkool!!! Someone has to keep it fun around here. No reason to get uptight about children's bicycles being built by grown men and women. Don't get me wrong, I take my builds seriously, but in they end, if it ain't fun it ain't worth it.

Firewing is rolling on the West Coast now.
It now has a new owner in the Bay Area.

Firewing was at Shiny Side Up in San Jose this year. The new owner took it there. She didn't get to enter it, but her custom from karfer took Best Vintage 2nd Place.

Thanks to @blwnmny for these pics he took at the show.

Anytime KF, my pleasure buddy! That was a nice show, I didn't take a bike, it was sort of a kast minute thing, but what a really nice show. Next year I'll be better planned, I felt like a duck out of water without one of my old cruisers. LOL! Well organized!
