Nothing lacking in that paint job. One of the best so far by a mile. Nice touch on the BO 07 marks on the dropouts.

Those are big compliments. Thank you guys! I think its fitting for every bike built in this build off to represent when & where it was built. When people ask what the BO-07 means, you can start a good convo and maybe even light the fire under them to be involved next year.

Lookin' great!!...........I reckon the ride height is just right and suits the integrity of the build perfectly........you can't have a fixed fender with suspension without a gap.

My inspiration is coming from the 24" Firestone I built for my son. I just love it, and I can never get enough of it. I always told my boy that one day I'd build its bigger brother so we can cruise the sidewalks together. If all goes well.. LACKLUSTER may just look like this:

Thanks for the great comments! Not much left to do. Although I have a couple more little details to handle before the final pics are taken.

Re: >>>LACKLUSTER<<< Custom BO-07 extended rockers.

Brrrrrr half way down page two is a cold, lonely, dark and decollate place. I don't even want to know what page three is like. I took a peek and saw tumbleweeds blowing through there...

Let me know when you post it. Glad my tire selection or build inspired an idea!!

Re: >>>LACKLUSTER<<<

I seriously need to keep my mouth shut. That's at least 4 ideas that people said I helped with in the past week. :p

I have been thinking about removing the "Hank" lettering from my tires and doing my own Flex-Liner 7 lettering instead. I'll wait and see how yours comes out. Yeah, that was my plan all along, to plant seeds all over BO7 and let everyone do some R&D for me to steal later. 8) :mrgreen:

Looking sharp. The HD tires on Fugsley had a raised outline. I sprayed some of my paint into the can top and used an artist brush to drop the paint in. Of course the tire was laying on it's side to do this.

One Jerald down, three to go... then comes the red. I'll go back and do some touch ups once it dries.

No doubt these babies are gonna look sweet. I can't wait to see the red. I guess I am going to have to get some Jerald's to add to my cool tire stockpile.
