    Finally! I hope you all had much fun in this build off as I did. I also picked up some tips here and there. Now it's time to just sit back, relax and grab some popcorn. Good luck to all the participants!

    Here's the link to the build http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-lost-boy.103216/. Sorry the photos are all messed up, I couldn't afford Photobucket's $399 fee :)

    Nice work! Love the contrast of the clean chrome and black on the raw vintage frame.

    Very unique frame, and you did it justice..Glad you kept the finish....NICE components. One of a kind build with the frame and tires.

    The best part is the pitted finish on the frame. Nice work!:113:

    The frame is so nice. That raw finish is rich.

    That is one of the cooler bare metal finishes I have seen. It has almost a hammered look to it and it so cool to see the brazing. I still want to find a set of those holy tires you used!
    Sick build brother! Hope you are putting some miles on it with the BBC!
    CONGRATS!
