One Piece Atatime is done. It’s been a fun build. I used all the original parts on the bike as I got it, except light, nameplate and recovering of seat. Higgins frame fork bearings etc. Huffy chainguard, Murray rear fender, peaked chopped front fender from? Rims were very true and I liked the blue paint so just cleaned them up. Originally had a Schwinn badge glued on so swapped it for this one. Enjoy the competition and thanks for all your kind comments, likes etc. Rigs

Did you adapt some kind of lights to the rear light/reflector housing. It looks very interesting but I can't see it in detail on my tablet? I really like the finished bike.

Thanks. I was curious. I have had a couple anodized aluminum LED lights about that size. They run on watch batteries and you press on the lens to turn them on. Anyway RIG'S bike is a cool build.

I've covered a few seats in my time here. Yours looks good. Nice combo of parts and customization!

Stay tuned for the 'Finished Build Thread' which should pop up around August 1st or so. Next step would be to take a bunch of photos of the bike in different light and background situations. Be ready to select your 'final photo' and post that at the top of your Finished thread once it is up and running.

Thanks for joining in the fun this year on BO 17 !

Thank you. Wasn’t sure on the final steps of the build. Will you be compiling a collage or slide show of all the bikes in each category? Had to attempt the seat myself as no upholsterers in town were up for the challenge. Enjoying your site. Rigs

Here's an example of an old voting thread. The reason OddJob stressed using your best pic first in your "Finished" thread is because that is what's used in the voting thread.

That was quick! I just caught up to your build thread. Neat bike. Especially like the fenders and wheels. That inner tube shot is great! Ha! He must have been desperate to get it rolling.

I got bored so I did a couple hours at a time. The bike was pretty much all there. Be cool to find a tank. Still looking.

How's this build coming along? One month to go baby! 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~!
