    Have to admit I was a little skeptical of this build in the mock up stages. Man was I wrong. I love it.

    This is one build that I actually watched as it progressed. So many details, (and that Girvin!) one of my faves.

    Oh exactly! The rusted FIBERGLASS tank on Drag King is a great example of a finish applied to match the worn original paint on the frame. It may be real rust but it's still applied. I think the patina on my bike, Little Neutrino is pretty cool. It looks old too, but it's minwax wood stain over bare metal. A worn finish applied isn't a deal breaker by any means. In fact it's a testament to the builder who can successfully pull it off.

    Exactly! That is what is so great about those two (for me anyway)
    Like the Funkman says: it is so personal...er...rat.

    Outskirtscustoms, I'm sorry for the oversight.
    Krunk Junk is a cool bike too, I don't know how I missed it.
