Here is a Walkaround Video







It's been another fun Build Off, I've had fun checkering and choppifying this bike. I know a lot of people were minimalistic on their Finished Threads this year. Sorry, I can't do that after 3 months of work. :D:grin::21: Here are the results.

As usual, another great build there KF. And, I think your photography skills are catching up to the building skills. You have some great shots.

Thanks man! I think it comes from treating every bike ride as a Savannah photo shoot throughout the year. Not bad for a smartphone camera. :D

Very cool bike KF Thea’s CNCs are not easy to come by as you know and this one is a one of a kind for sure. Really like your work & your photos are not to bad either . Are you sure you didn’t hire a professional.

The 'contemporary industrial' style of the shiny chrome and frame, along with the hot rod look of the checkered splashes and the raked front end has a unique and catchy look to it!

Another one of 'King' build!

I promise that I built the bike myself and didn't hire a professional :p:p


Rat Fink-Check
Alfred E Neuman-Check
Dude with a beard and a flute-Check
Way cool bike-check
You know that I'm always gonna have some fun with my builds.
That Fink Hot Wheels shifter was a blast and makes me laugh every time I hear it.
What... Me Worry was sort of a last minute afterthought, but I love how it turned out.
The bearded flute dude has been playing downtown for a long time. I heard him on my ride and couldn't pass up the photo op. I love my city!!!


Kinghish when you told me what you wanted to do to this I was skeptical but man it came out nice. Very well done buddy. Sent from my SM-J727P using Tapatalk
Now you tell me!! It was your suggestion (or dare) for me to put the Mothras on under the steertube :eek::eek: :21:
Thanks man!

I really had fun with the checkerboard work on this one. Thanks for the matching racing socks!

Thanks Kota, glad to see you back on. I like this build a lot, but I'm not sure if I like it more than Rockafella. One thing is for certain. I'm always gonna have fun with my builds

I always enjoy watching your seemingly freewheeling approach to builds. Seat is amazing. Looks like a really fun ride.

Thanks man! I never have a complete plan for any build. It's always an organic try this, try that flow. Sometimes there may be a general direction, but not always. That keeps it fun and I get to be just as surprised as the viewers :D .
