    I finally got back home and revised the second and third posts. Sorry about dragging it out.

    Great bike, and a fantastic alternative history fiction as well!

    I noticed you had some deep fenders. I was thinking about getting some of those.

    I just got to see these pics on a big screen instead of my phone. WOW WOW AND WOW. You have an amazing vision that became a reality with this bike. Truly a Ramond Lowry, if I spelled that right, design. It is straight from the period when cars, trains, household appliances and all modern conveinances were streamlined to appear rocket technology fast. My hat is off to you sir for sharing your creativity with us all. You have my vote along with everyone elses

    I missed a whole episode of the Kung Fu marathon yesterday staring at the garage pic so had to wait 'til after work today to take this all in. We're all really lucky to have you to entertain us through this build off. Wonderful thread to check in on to see what you'd cooked up each time. + nobody does the clues and teasers quite like TRM.

    I was expecting to be blown away by the completed bike but as with everything on this build it way exceeded that expectation. :41::41::41:

    To a master,

    This is a stellar transformation from an overlooked old lady to a svelt, dapper gentleman! It fits the lead-in story so well! Great job on both!

    from an unworthy student! :praise:

    Great creative innovative build project. The presentation through out the build and the finished build thread story line kicks it up to another level. Well played, well done RM!!!

    Every year you blow us away! You did not disappoint this year. I love the 'story' as much as the bike. Congrats on another beautiful build.
