Welcome to the Finished line Spike! That parts list is crazy. A truly rat-isfying build. And great Final Photo at the top!

It looks like a build Electra would have made in the '60s with their patented Flat Foot Technology and long wheelbase. :thumbsup:

Fun and cool build to follow!

You probably already know this, but Don't forget that when the Voting thread is created we will use the first pic from your Finished thread. I'm not suggesting anything is wrong with the current pic, just making sure everyone knows.
