Outstanding, literally - color pallet, overall look, seat tube, tire choice and a killer pinstriping job gives this bike one of my votes. Well done dude, well done!

Unsolicited advice: find a place with lots of green grass and photograph it there. The angle of your second photo is really good. That is a great looking ride. Do enjoy!

well she is all done and delivered. This bike was commissioned to honor her sister who sadly pasted away. Based on an extremely rough schwinn canti frame i cut out the mangled seat post tube replaced by a curved piece similar to an elgin. Also the rear drop outs were very rough so i whacked them off and made rear facing drops that lower the rear 1". Fork is an unknown prewar, old nickel plated bars and stem. Kept it clean, minimal pinstriping and done. It rides amazing, i cant get over the ride. Thanks to all the fellow builders who helped me along on her, and a big thanks to p-lo for helping me locate a frame. Good luck to you all in build off 10, its been fun.

The voting will start in a few days. In a special thread. Each person gets to pick their three favorite bikes.

The whole thing looks awesome. Pin striping on the seat is a nice touch.

Smegol thought it was pretty cool too but was too busy finding something to chew on

By the way i forgot to thank charina who asked me to build it. Without her funding the bike would not have happened.
