    Just added a ride video at the bottom of the photos back on page one. I always like to show that my bikes are rideable and not just built for pictures! ;)

    Thanks for looking!

    I'd like to give a thank you to Cobra Products for the FLEXROUTE cable guides. These things are awesome!

    Thank you to everyone that used one of their votes on this bike! I'm very pleased to place as high as I did with a bike that doesn't fit the typical rat rod mold. Who could've guessed that a skinny tire commuter would finish in the top ten!?!:)

    Also, congratulations to everyone who participated in boTen! It's been fun.
