    Finished, adjusted and ridden! [​IMG] Another fun bike in the stable [​IMG] started with this [​IMG] added some of this [​IMG] and ended up with this [​IMG] ,[​IMG] .[​IMG] .[​IMG] .[​IMG] .[​IMG] .[​IMG] big thanks to RRB member tucktuck, if he didn't sell me a nice straight frame for a great price this bike would not have been built. Thanks also to Ian for the awesome grips, and to everyone here for the kind words and inspiration. It's been a pleasure watching all these amazing bikes come together, the creativity here is unbelievable!

    Love the fat and skinny tires. And everything else, too.

    You guys are too kind! Thank you! I rode it to a car show this evening and got a few more pics [​IMG] the black car is a replica of the one in the first Mad Max movie, RHD and all...[​IMG] a real rat rod [​IMG] the rambler wagon gasser has a big straight six [​IMG] I'm not really sure what this is but it's awesome [​IMG] when's the last time you saw a supercharged straight six? [​IMG] this Ford rolled in as I was leaving, made a beautiful sound and was too cool not to take a picture [​IMG] once again thank you all for the encouragement and compliments, it's been a pleasure building a bike with you all!
