I finished it up this morning and took it over to Wheeler Army airfield for pics. It's a 1942 Hawthorne.

I took it for another ride, on the flat and downhill it's fine, but any incline and it's a tank. I'll be going to Pearl Harbor, Hickam Field, Ford Island, and a couple other famous places pretty soon for some more pics. I'll post them in the "My Neighborhood" section.

I really like the pic with the vintage plane in the background. Great theme build!

Thanks!
That's a P40 Warhawk, our fighter plane at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack.

I was trying to add this photo as the first pic, but my computer keeps blocking it. I can post anywhere else fine. Moderator, can you place this as the first pic for judging?

Sweet military rat build! I've been out of touch lately. When did you move to Hawaii?

In January, changing from the earliest to latest time zone gives me an extra day for the build off!:dance2: I'm continuing my education here.

This bike is using the seat I got from you on our last deal, and the handle grips came off the Portafold.

Oh yeah, that is one of the seats I bought in Malaka, Malaysia a few years back while on vacation.
