    Proud to say this build was extremely low cost, almost totally used and recycled vintage and old stuff!
    Only new parts purchased for build were rear tire and tube - $15

    I see some finished threads have a "before" picture, so I thought I would add one.

    This is truly a recycle-rat! Wow, what a list of parts / donors! You achieved your goal of not making it look too "chopper-like". Bet it's a "gas-ser" to ride, looks like it fits you well!

    Congrats on finishing! $15 is cheap for a build-off build!

    I remember when we met for a ride this spring and I asked you if you were going to enter the build off. You had no plans to enter at that time but I like to think that ride planted the seed for this build. Maybe not, but I still like to think so. Great build, it is the finest $15 bike I have ever seen.
