Marshall, you orange 'crushed' it! From the braided tubing to the dice pedals to your moon discs; and that color combo. As we used to say in the '70s, "MINT!"

This will turn heads on any boardwalk, sidewalk, or as you have proven, old wooden bridge. Stellar build! :113:

Thanks Oddjob. I had a lot of fun with this one. I got it with no original paint so a quick trip to the paint isle was in order. Saw a can of satin orange and it was on. Congrats on your build, i've been following it from the start.

Great looking ride, I had a feeling from the start that this would be one of my favorites builds..!
Thanks Crujones. Had a good time on this one. Got my color scheme picked out and just rolled with it. A few bumps along the way it worked itself out. Congrats on your build. It's still one of my favs this year.

Darn, all the puns have all been taken! Sometimes I wondered which way you were taking it, but it has always been a fascinating trail to follow1 :)

Thanks GeePig. Changed a few things along the way but I squeezed in plenty of little details.
