I wanted to have something of a cross between a Bowden spacelander, and a lowrider bike.
Also wanted it to look like an old field find Caddy. I'm happy to have it.


Thanks to everyone that followed along, and gave input.

Definitely a cool bike and fairly rare kit . I am sure not many people have built them . It came out really nice a head turner for sure[emoji1303]

I like the low-slung look, definitely reminds me of an old Caddy.
Very unique build, really captured our imaginations!

It was great watching you work through the challenges of this kit and then really making it your own with the killer paintina! Excellent rusty work. The late addition of the guard really set it off to.
This is a top contender in my book.
Congrats brother!

Thanks man.

I hope it's a top contender for a lot of people.
Might be a while before I bother to work with bikes again.
A lot of other projects to work on.

Thanks.

Maybe bass boat glitter would have gotten me closer to the top.....
:21:

I actually really like your patina job, works better for me than over the top paint on that bike, the body is already very cool, adding extra flash to it might have actually made it worse...
