fantastic build as one would expect. you have inspired me to up my game in the photo department. well documented!

Thanks man!
I always try to document the work AND the experimental mockups just as much for myself as for everyone else.
I went for another ride and took more pics of course. I'll post some up.

In an urban setting a new photo op is around every corner. I turned down a street I don't normally ride down and saw the columns and thought it might be cool to hide the bike in there. So I experimented around and here is what I got.

Even though ride videos are not required, I posted one in my Build thread and also in the third post of this Finished thread.

Here it is:
Ride Video around the Vietnam War Memorial





I even took it one step further and provided the first ever Dance Video for a bike in any Rat Rod Bikes Build Off!!!!!
:D :rockout::banana::banana::rockout:

I wanted to see that seat post support the rider! :praise::praise::praise::praise::praise::praise::praise:

No worries at all man. It supports my 250 pound butt VERY well actually. Just like it did on SaltHammer a few build offs ago. That solid steel boomerang of a seatpost doesn't flex or wiggle at all. @slowriderz builds some quality stuff.

If you include my first shake down cruise before paint, I've now been out on four 3 hour rides on this bike and love it.

I even rode it down cobblestone roads to River Street to get this photo of my PHAT butt on the river walk.

And to give you a feel for what I mean by cobblestones, these are old ballasts stones from ships. I rode down seated fully on the seat.

This poster that I won after BO13 popped up as a four year old memory, so I updated the collage to show all twelve years of my RatRodBikes Build Off bikes.
