First off thanks to those who voted for this bike.

I recently stole the wheel set and tires off my build-off bike for the Heavy-Duti I just got.
Looking through my wheels for a set to replace them with I decided on this orange set. Dug out some fat tires. I faux patina'd a rear fender, put it on and removed the wood box. Replaced the saddle with a more comfy Brooks which could use some weathering/aging.

You know I walked past the bike at the Bike Fest and on first glance I thought just another old rusty weathered bike.
The next time going the opposite direction I realized that it was Uncle Touchy. You really did a great job giving it the weathered patina look.

It was a sweet ride to start, but I really like it even more now with the orange wheelset and fenders. Perfect changes for this ride if you ask me!!!

Many bikes were built during the build-off, few will be remembered, this one will not be forgotten.
