Mint Trip is definitely a different direction than my last year's build off bike "Hombre"

This year I wanted to focus on the basics of a cruiser bike with bold color combo.
Made it down to a local landmark of sorts. The barn they filmed parts of "Days of Thunder" is located about 5 miles from the house, located in Mooresville NC. A really neat place for some finished bike pics. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed building it. :forum::rofl::emo::bandit::ninja::nerd:

Awesome work! Wow, your colors are a perfect combo, I really dig the giant chain ring, and how the springs on the fork and seat emulate each other! That is, appropriately, one "mint trip"! Bravo!

First off CONGRATS on building another wicked ride!!!!
#2 should be your voting photo for sure. It shows off the bike the best as far as a one glance view.
The other pics are great supporting pics though.

Okay, thanks for your valuable input. After a good night's sleep, I can see clearly now. Pics have been re-arranged to the proper order. Cheers!

Which saddle is that btw? Beautiful! Also, I agree that your first pic is the "final photo", but that 4th one under the busted building with the light streaming in, broken wood, and your mint bike...the juxtaposition is calendar worthy!

Thanks oddjob, it's a long spring Messinger restoration done by The_Black_Monark . His work is top notch.
As far as the photos go, it's going to be tough. I too like the sunlight peeking down through the barn roof onto the bike. I appreciate your input, I'm glad the deadline is....oh poo, it's almost here! :eek:
