HEXtreme Build Thread



Here is the Walkaround Video (I may add more videos later)



I know a lot of people go minimalistic on their Finished Threads. Sorry, I can't do that after pouring so much work into the build. Here are the results.

Here is the final result. WARNING - PIC HEAVY as usual!! I tried to mix the detail pics in with the full bike pics.

ROUND ONE OF THREE - SEXY HEXY PIC OVERDRIVE!!!

Man, you outdid yourself again! If that's even possible?? This classic highly desirable frame was the perfect template for those killer wheels, way out fork and bars, and your patented 'royal' touches. Wildly cool!

The bike is great, and the details are what really make it. Most of all, you really capture the best of every angle in your photos!

Thanks brother. I've had the frame for a few years and then last year as I scored the wheels and then won the forks and then bought the bike that had the seat and redline Hanks, there was no way I could have built any other bike!

WELL DONE BROTHER!! GREAT BIKE.

Thanks my brother!! Glad we made it through our 11th BO in a row!! We've had a blast in every single one of them, but nothing beats the time when we met up in Philly right before the end of BO6 a little over 10 years ago. Check out my post about that!

What can anyone say mate, class act from start to finish! You have really helped me throughout this whole build off with encouragement and advice.....for which I am eternally grateful. I think you definitely have this one ‘in the bag’ :)
