    Rat-tastic! Love the contrast of the worn frame and the green grass and flowers in your pics. Has a sort of peaceful tranquility and simplicity to it. Well done!

    Wow! It turned out great!

    If I hadn't seen your build thread, I would not have any trouble believing that this bike was some obscure survivor from the 1800's. Nice job!

    Great work at creating your own pre TOC bike!
    Incredible work. Please follow up with so pics of the bike with a lighter background so it really shows it off.

    Looks amazing, hard to believe it isn't from 1891.

    It's hard to photograph, especially since most of the decent looking backdrops around here are wooded spots. It's tough to even get the camera to focus on the bike. Here are brighter versions of the original photos.

    And a few new ones in better light.

    Looks like the real thing. Had to look at the build thread to convince myself. Looks fast with the skinny rubber. Love the BB solution you came up with. That should work nice if you were able to get it tight.
