Here is the place to put your finished bikes!

Pics must be here by midnight UTC+6 (central America time) on the 1st of march 2014. Any posts made after this time or any posts that show as edited after this time will not be included!
You may however edit your posts after the voting thread is up and running.

Voting order will be the order the bikes are entered here, please make the first picture in your post the one you would like used for voting and please make sure it is a decent but not huge size.

Have fun!

Looking forward to seeing them come in!

Luke.

OK here is my entry for the winter build off
i apologize to those who read the old version i did revamp it.
1950's huffy mainliner wrapped in gorilla Tape mossy oak pattern.
all components are junkyard bicycle parts the wheels fork and bearings coming off a huffy stalker the crankset coming from a road-master as well as the bars.
seat and seat post from a 50's columbia it's a messinger seat
brake levers are mismatched but have been wrapped as well as the bars to match the rest of the bike.
win or lose this was fun and i will be participating in build offs more often.
thanks Luke for setting all this up.
Sean

lol yeah i thought bout arctic but the mossy oak was more my taste personally.
well we don't have 9 inches of snow here but what we got is frozen over so it's really slick
still gonna try though lol.
good luck with you're build.
