Build thread: viewtopic.php?f=67&t=56465&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

I started off thinking I had plenty of time, but with other projects and work, it took much longer than I thought it would to close this build out. I'm proud of it, but here's a funny fact: It's not my type of bike. See, I had the idea all planned out, but the parts and pieces that spoke to me all assembled together formed a bike that's not my style. So, I love it, but I'll probably be selling it in the not too distant future. Next year, I'll probably go with something a little more stripped down.

ANNNYYYWWAAAYYY, here she is, and thank you for your consideration:

Really nice bike. I love the colors and the whole bike.

I know what you mean about the parts talking to you. I usually let the frame/parts decide what direction I take the bike.

Congrats on building an awesome ride....

Wicked looking bike! I've seen a bunch of rat rod cars and trucks with no upholstery, just the seat springs also, nice touch.

Ahahaha! I've never seen that bike before, and yet, there are a few similarities. I guess there really isn't any truly original ideas anymore.

Nice bike, by the way. Did you make those bars?

Bike looks great, lots of cool little touches and it all blends well.

I used exercise bike pedals on my build off bike last year, very similar to those with the rubber straps, I eventually had to cut them off because the rubber stretches while riding and I came to a stop and my feet were stuck in the pedals and I almost fell over.
