I've had this bike finished for almost three months, but with work and my camera having problems I wasn't able to get some pictures taken until today. A huge thanks goes out to Bikebuilder for making the frame, and letting me be part of the design process. He also made the taillight bracket under the seat and was able to get the rear hub apart when I couldn't. Uncle Stretch was cool enough to trade me the fork for some artwork too. I figured I had better get some pictures taken while there was still some paint left on it. I've crashed it three time myself and probably double that from other people . This was really the first swing bike I had ridden and they are a ton of fun, but they can get away from you if you're not paying attention (the vinyl is torn on the back of the seat from doing wheelies). The best part about a swing bike is watching other people ride it for the first time .

Excellent job. I love the color and the front fork looks great. I just sent my money off today for an original that I found on craigslist. It will be cool, but not nearly as unique as yours.
Great color and very cool bike. Those Gusset's match the Uncle Stretch frame. Maybe they need some pics together.

Diggin the model A tail light. Nice job!

Are You Ready?
Just wanted to say again I really like how you finished that up! Creative chainguard mod. Color combo is great. I liked your first idea of a patina, but this clean look is just right.

If they come, I will build it.
Thanks everyone for the compliments, I'm glad you guys like it. Bikebuilder I liked the patina idea too, but when I actually got the wheels built I knew that it needed a bit more of a hot rod look to it.
Took the words right out of my mouth. If they had made them like this I would already have ten! Now I want one!
