    I think you've got a great final photo at the top! That green and the green of the plants really give it a bright and sunny look.

    Clean, polished build, looks like it rolled out of a custom bike shop.

    Looks like you found a pot o’ gold at the end of the RRBO rainbow brother!

    Great bike and I’m not just saying that because my favorite color is green...

    Cheers!

    Beautiful. Great color and I think the black seat really pops.

    That paint is just as mesmerizing as the batflector!
    Great fountain pic too.
    Congrats!

    Thanks Kingfish I think it turned out great considering it started out as a bent frame headed for the scrap heap .
    I paid $25.00 for the frame crank and fork the rest I had in the parts pile and wanted to clear up some space .
    Will probably sell it now that its done .
    But it is the best riding 26 inch bike I have ever owned that frame is around 22 inches good for a tall guy .
