Here is the Walkaround Video - I have a few more videos that I will post farther down, including the first ever Official Dance Video for a Build Off bike!!!


I had to start late in this build off because it has been a trying year for us with Dadfish's health issues. I am dedicating this build to him. I really needed the escape that this build gave me and to be part of the
camaraderie that you all bring to the table. THANK YOU ALL!!!!! This is my 9th main Build Off bike.

I know a lot of people have been
minimalistic on their Finished Threads. Sorry, I can't do that after pouring so much work into the build. Here are the results.

Here is what I started with 46 days ago:



Here is the final result. WARNING - PIC HEAVY as usual!!
