    Can not believe I actually was able to finish on time. I un-decide on which photo I like. One has a nice quirkiness to it and the other a more graphic angle and a node to were I live. You guys can decide.

    Great bike!
    One criticism, with both photos actually, is that they are not taken from the drive side...

    If you are not worried about that, I like the top one.

    Luke.

    Thanks Luke. I could have shot the bottom one from the other side but the top one's composition, which I am starting to favor, worked better reversing the bikes perspective verses the building.

    I have always disliked it when people flip drop bars up like this - but for the first time, on this bike, I like it. It fits the bike somehow. Well done all around.

    I have always been the same way, but it works well with this build.
    Congrats on a cool build. I think the first pic shows the bike better

    That top pic for sure! Somehow, I think the perspective on the building helps those bars....! Haha! And, for the record; that rat-ification you did on that PVC battery holder is the single best creative, steampunky, ratillious piece in this whole build off. Left me totally rat-isfied. Well done all around!

    That build-

    -looks like a young man bought that bike in perfect condition, rode it for ten years, left it in a barn for twenty, found it, polished up the original patina, rediscovered the joys of riding on it again, decided to make it a rolling love story to the Bicycle Experience-and replaced his tires yesterday.

    Love it. :inlove::inlove::inlove:

    Same for me on both counts! The bars and the light bracket counterbalance, I think this ones real cool.
