    The bike turned out nice and the white tires on the black frame look good.

    The pouch should come in handy for carrying that spare change for ice cream. :D

    Hard to find quality single bolt bar clamps. One more detail that adds to a great old-style 8) custom

    That bike is just... Beautiful man. Very simple and classy. There is not one thing that isn't right on this bike.
    Well done!

    came out really great Adam. All the pieces fit well.

    I like that our bikes are similar in concept but very different in execution :)

    Another great bike that has that perfect balance. It's very classy and I can't see a single thing that I would change.
