    Well it's great to have made it to the finish line.

    Started off with a yellow Ladies bike rescued from curbside refuse.

    The aged paint finish was torch applied, fenders made from bicycle rims; and various parts made from repurposed items, garage project cast offs and bike parts.

    Enjoyed building this baby; and mixing it up with fellow mischief makers. IMG_20170807_073058.jpg IMG_20170807_090821.jpg c IMG_20170807_090316.jpg IMG_20170807_091524.jpg IMG_20170807_092310.jpg IMG_20170807_092129.jpg IMG_20170421_115956.jpg

    Thanks Scrumblero, appreciate it. It was fun (sometimes not) building her.

    Amazing transformation! It's the steampunkiest!

    Love the use of copper tubing and mounting pieces. Hard to know where to start...and that's a good sign.

    Well done!

    I like looking at stuff I don't have the imagination to do.

    What a fun ride!

    Those fenders are awesome. What a great idea!! Add all the copper and you have something really cool.

    Great Job!!

    Great sculpture. So much detail to look at. Copper work is unique and fanciful.

    I'm making each my favorite BO bikes, the desktop background on my computer, for 3 days each. Your bike is one of them.
