    Hey Skipton,

    I'm liking that yellow!

    It makes no sense to be SUBTLE!! :lol:

    Good Luck!

    Thanks Cman

    I debated for a long time if I should do the ends... very happy I did!

    MplsCoaster Thanks man! The yellow had me a little worried this morning but when the bike started coming together

    I really started to like it!


    Got a lot done today! :mrgreen:

    Hey Skipton,

    I can't believe how much you got done while I was on my ride :lol:
    The color scheme is incredible!
    Glad you trusted you instincts :wink:
    The yellow bars are so cool! 8)
    The yellow fenders with white tires are fantastic
    And you still have the tank yet.. :shock:

    First Rate Build!!!!

    Well Done

    Right now, without the tank and lights, it looks like an early 1900's concept design, for SPEED!..VERY COOL build!

    Hey Skipton,

    "Bellowing Yellow" is great! I love how kids just say the right things.

    Looking good with the brakes, that was a lot of work!!!
    Shifter and it's location look good.

    Good luck on the rest!

    Re: ~SPEEDY~ Now known as *BELLOWING YELLOW* Full Fendered Fun

    I have been trying to come up with a cool name for months. And Garret walks out to the backyard and sees the bike on the stand in the sun

    and said "Dad you should call this Bellowing Yellow" :mrgreen: it was so cool!

    I am so glad I could get a brake to fit 8)

    I think the shifter looks good also

    Thanks!

    Thanks I like the color more and more... could not be more happy with the fenders!

    Got home from work around 1am really wanted to get this done ... but just to tired now going to mess something up going to get some sleep

    would love to make a Finished post sometime on Sunday ..... but as of right now still have over 40hrs to go :wink:

    My Wife told me that I was no allowed to put ugly black pedals on
    these are all i have

    [​IMG]
