    I've got the fork built. It just needs some grinding, sanding and some primer and paint. I have also got the "tank" primed. It will probably get sanded and primed again tomorrow. Sorry for the bad picture.

    That bike rocks. The Creamsicle! My favorite...but seriously, great color combo, cool fork work and the white tires look good. Maybe white forks? IT needs more white some where? Anyway, can't wait to see it finished.

    Right after I took my final pictures for the build off I took her for a spin around the block. No more clean tires!

    I don't know Dave, looks like a trailer queen! We have to get it out on the mean streets of Detroit soon. I didn't really realize the extent of how closely it resembles the real bike.

    WOW...I just ran across this board because of the pics of this Merkel bike. And I must say this is the coolest bike I have ever seen. I am a HUGE fan of Merkels, In one pic there is a mag with the spread of the real bike...I believe I watched the build of that bike..and at the time of building it I worked for an auto parts store and I mixed the paint for it.
