The bull looks killer on there! STP sticker is so classic. Love them polished rims with the patina-d bike. :inlove: You going to be applying any special sauce to the paint? BLO?
Thanks! I might rub it down with BLO later but no time before the build off ends. Got one last thing to add though!

No pics yet, but here's a bonus picture that I like.:)

I'm pretty happy with how this restomod turned out!

Here's the first and only complete picture taken just before its first test ride three days ago.

It has come a long way from how it came to me!

As cool as it is, it just seemed like it needed one last thing to give it a little more personality. Something more assertive. The tires and wheels are really the only thing that is a modern upgrade but it still looks pertty conservitive.

So... this happened. :D

Dang, it almost doesn't even look like the same bike! Once again, you knocked it out of the park!
Thanks!
Well..........there goes that RRBBO 17 idea 😂
I'm sure that I'm not the first.
Bike looks amazing. Another incredible TRM velo creation!

Another 'Winston' build!
Thanks OJ

I had just enough time to mount the wheels and load the bike along with my drums before a gig at the 'FIRST FRIDAY' downtown street festival last night. I've taken other RRBBO bikes in the past but usually after the build off has ended.

Here's the X53 in front of our sidewalk setup.

My cousin Charlie (the guy that welded the chainguard) was also there in his '35 Ford Cabriolet, so I rode to where it was parked and snapped this shot.

Had several folks asking about the bike and one guy wanting to know where I got the Hoosiers. :bigsmile:

Killer save and build.
The Hoosier lettering is just the right amount of hot rod to add too.
CONGRATS on a wicked X53. Glad you found time to jump back in this year.
