    Thanks man!
    I always try to document the work AND the experimental mockups just as much for myself as for everyone else.
    I went for another ride and took more pics of course. I'll post some up.

    In an urban setting a new photo op is around every corner. I turned down a street I don't normally ride down and saw the columns and thought it might be cool to hide the bike in there. So I experimented around and here is what I got.

    Those are pedicabs. We have about 3 companies of those hauling tourists all over the historic district.

    Even though ride videos are not required, I posted one in my Build thread and also in the third post of this Finished thread.

    Here it is:

    I even took it one step further and provided the first ever Dance Video for a bike in any Rat Rod Bikes Build Off!!!!!

    No worries at all man. It supports my 250 pound butt VERY well actually. Just like it did on SaltHammer a few build offs ago. That solid steel boomerang of a seatpost doesn't flex or wiggle at all. @slowriderz builds some quality stuff.

    If you include my first shake down cruise before paint, I've now been out on four 3 hour rides on this bike and love it.

    I even rode it down cobblestone roads to River Street to get this photo of my PHAT butt on the river walk.

    And to give you a feel for what I mean by cobblestones, these are old ballasts stones from ships. I rode down seated fully on the seat.
