I think you've got a great final photo at the top! That green and the green of the plants really give it a bright and sunny look.

Clean, polished build, looks like it rolled out of a custom bike shop.

Looks like you found a pot o’ gold at the end of the RRBO rainbow brother!

Great bike and I’m not just saying that because my favorite color is green...

Cheers!

That paint is just as mesmerizing as the batflector!
Great fountain pic too.
Congrats!

Thanks Kingfish I think it turned out great considering it started out as a bent frame headed for the scrap heap .
I paid $25.00 for the frame crank and fork the rest I had in the parts pile and wanted to clear up some space .
Will probably sell it now that its done .
But it is the best riding 26 inch bike I have ever owned that frame is around 22 inches good for a tall guy .
