That polishing work was well worth it!
This is a beauty! I especially like the guard and how it is so wide at the front.
Nice work!

I loved how the guard turned out but made made me realize it needs black leather for the grips. Starting to build a new wheel with the three speed hub now that @SwissGuy got the indicator. Then stick shift

Wood on bikes, one of my favorite things! I've got something in mind very similar to your pedals. Of course, now that you've already done it, I'll only be 'imitating' not 'innovating'. :wink1:

Still innovating. I'm sure there's 3000 ways to bolt two boards to a peddle I'm still figuring a better way. Clear coated mine in slip resistant spray.

Copper end caps look killer with the leather and nice contrast with the silver.

@ingola One month to go, bring it on home~!

The Finished Builds category is up and running. Start a new thread for your build in there using the name of your bike build only, then add photos, highlights of the build, a link to this build thread, etc. Remember, your first photo at the top of your Finished Build thread will be the one used for judging in the Voting Thread after the Build Off ends on September 6, at 12 noon, Central Time in the USA.

RaT oN~!

I was originally going to finish the bike today but little guy decided he wanted to build his first rat. I had a Schwinn typhoon he fell in love with but also wanted a springer. So he changed it.

Then decided it was dirty. Polished the fenders. The front one rattles it would drive us nuts but he loves it.
