    Almost done!

    Just need a chain and my light setup - still in the mail. Oh yeah and a chainguard - but the jury is still out on which one, he he he. Enjoy the basement pics for now and hopefully I will have good ones outside but they are talking snow soon!

    Looks more "Liberace" than "Elvis" to me though.

    Looks like I came right out of the 50's, like it should be sitting right next to a 57 chevy of the same colors.

    OK, everything is done except the windshield. I didn't like the handlebars for two reasons: one, they looked like every other ape hanger bike and two, the bike wouldn't fit in the back of the van, LOL. I wanted the W-I-D-E G-L-I-D-E look. I had this pair of bars I was gonna use on my RRBBO1 bike and decided to give them a try. Lights were purchased and after some manufacturing of a light bar from a fender hangar here it is. Pictures are not great, but it's raining and I have school conferences for the next four days so I doubt i will get a chance to shoot new ones. ENJOY! It was a labor of love!

    It came out great! The lights and bars are a nice touch. Sorry that Brooks Saddle wasn't a touch lighter blue. Looks good on there though. Have you ridden it? Was the hump in the seat a pain or is it OK? I never mounted it on a bike and tried it.

    Very nice! Excellent! Excellent! Any plans for some fenders down the road? I think that will really bring the bike together. Looks awesome tho!
