    This is my entry :mrgreen: . The name came from my mock up build and the wife saw it and said " It's a bike once it has wheels on it and that's number nine.....don't you think you have enough bikes?" And #9 was born.

    Okay, where did you get a threadless fork that looks like that?

    Maybe you're playing tricks on us. :wink:

    Nice contrast

    The orange rims and black spokes look awesome.

    Reminds me of some '70s factory hot rods with orange stripes! Just looks cool.

    I wish they were the Nashbar 3speed wheels. They're just a single speed coaster brake wheel set I had left over from my Norco.
    Thanks for the compliments guys! :mrgreen:

    UPDATE

    Sorry guys, not keeping the yellow...it was a 50 mph paint job and I have something else in mind. The wheels are done! Found some nice tires at a local LBS with a tread pattern that goes with my inspiration.

    Strippin' paint
