    Great Job, Skipton,
    That is so cool : the way the white fender struts blend in with the white spokes. Fenders look like they are floating. And finished with time left over.

    Classy..just Classy! IMO it's hard to pull off a monochromatic paint scheme "right". You did it perfectly.

    Hey Skipton,

    I like the shot in front of the bricks! 8)
    How about a Lake MI shot?
    Or a pic with mostly red and blue?

    Keep on Riding!

    Thanks!

    I like how the pics turned out. Wanted to do lake Michigan photos just did not have time before the deadline :roll:

    Have been riding round the neighborhood making sure everything works and that the front fender is strong enough :shock: :roll: :wink:

    Hope to ride it to work Sunday or Monday ...Definitely get some lake photos then! :mrgreen:


    Thanks Skip
