    What a ride it has been. I said it before this bike held up to her name but she is done and i could not be happier. I set out to build a what if bike. What if Ed Roth built a 60's kustom bike what would it look like? That was my platform and i ran with it, maybe a bit over the edge but i kept telling myself that there was no such thing back in the day. to see the build thread click here. viewtopic.php?f=55&t=39720 it started as a frame i got from slick which i think is a 35 colson. the rest is straight outa my beer induced brain. thanks to all who cheered me along through this build i hope you all dig it enough to consider it for a vote (pretty please with sugar on top). i present to you HARD LUCK

    Your beer endced brain works a lot better than my beer induced brain.
    Thanks for the support on my first build.
    Hard Luck is a B-E-A-UTE!

    So how's it ride/handle with the little wheel and big leaf?

    Wish I had some striping skills, looks excellent.

    Had to think long and hard before I say this. "This is the coolest bike I've ever seen."

    Hey Karfer,

    Really top notch work!
    All the details are mind bending.
    The front springer is really creative.
    And then there is the pin striping :shock:

    Great Build!

    Looks like a build off hat trick in the makes here! A few more lines on her since i last saw, i think you have perfectly channeled Ed Roth with this one.
