I guess I can call it finished.
The main idea was to build better frame than my previous board tracker and use as many components from it as possible.

That's me.

Some specs:
Custom build lugged frame with stainless steel lugs and cromoli tubing.
Old space liner fork modified to fit wide rims and disk brake
Dynamo hub in the front, 8 speed Shimano Nexus Hub in the rear.
Shifter mounted under the saddle (the billiard ball)
Etc, etc...

Great work!
Congrats on finishing, I think this is the first scratch built lugged bike on RRB!
Thank you. I did not plan to be the first one with a lugged frame, maybe I could set a trend here [emoji2] [emoji2] [emoji2] [emoji2]

Love your work! This bike has a great balance of retro, vintage, cool, and ingenuity.

I like the 3rd pic from the top for your voting picture, just my opinion.

Which country are you in? I see European style buildings, ocean, and beautiful modern architecture too.

Again...well done :41:

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!!!

That is an outstanding build; a great eclectic juxtaposition of modern and old components cleverly blended to create a harmonious kinetic construction - well done!

Yeah. A lot of ppl ask me whether it is a fat bike. And every time I have to explain that it is not [emoji2] [emoji2] [emoji2]

It's somewhere near the Barceloneta Subway station. I don't recall the name.[emoji106] [emoji106]

Even after finishing the build there's something to improve. Changed headlight position and the shifter cable allocation.

I really love your work man!
That frame design is killer.
Definitely a top tier builder in my book!
