    I think you need a pic location that will provide more color contrast to your silver frame. I have a feeling that the bike will be lost against the concrete gray in the first four.

    I think you may be right about that, thank you. I'm going to experiment a bit with the photography.

    Just wondering if the motobars and LED headlight ever made it onto a build.

    Here's what the new part is for, waiting on the bracket to come from England to hold it. 20190725_220849.jpg 20190726_200625.jpg

    Don't have it done yet, waiting on some more rasta parts. It's a Kona Hei Hei.

    Thank you for all the support during this build and thank you to all that voted for it! There were so many great bikes built, I never thought I'd get second place.
