    Ewww....

    If you look behind me in the second photo you can see the yield sign and fire hydrant from my original photo of the bike on the first page of my build. They still haven't cleaned out that storm drain and it floods every time it rains.

    I think all entrants should include a "fashion shot" with their bike...

    Alright people, read this carefully. There is not, has never been, and will never be anything that is "the new black". The very use of the phrase, "_____ is the new black", is a tacit admission that black is the ONE, the ONLY BLACK!!! :x

    There are always some cool parts on most RRB builds, but I don't think I have ever seen a parts list for any of the builds.

    Here is my partial list so far.

    1960s Chrome Spaceliner Frame and Chainguard
    1940s Snyder Hawthorne BeeHive Springer Fork
    1960s Murray Meteor Flite ladies rear end drops and seat stays
    1960s AMF Skyrider Star Chainring
    1940s dogleg crank
    1954 Chevy hood ornament wings
    1953 Ford jet hood ornament wings
    1960s twin tube 5 speed muscle bike shifter
    200x Schwin SS Sport black rims
    200x Bontrager Redline Hank tires
    2012 Shimano Nexus 7 hub
    200x Clubman motorcycle handlebars
    2012 Rat Rod Bikes 007 Headbadge
    Rear suspension based on 1939 TwinFlex (not really a part, but cool re-use of old engineering)

    More to come for sure!

    What are you building with? Sometimes it's easy for the rest of us to miss some of the cool parts that you are using.
