    Very inspirational!! I've been thinking about building a fixie (or a coastie :wink: ) with deep V's for flying around town, but I'm in love with the lines of vintage cruisers. Your bike is the perfect answer!! And, it's very shiny! Great build!!

    You had me at the 3 piece crank. Most would have left it as is in your before pic. Looks fast and light. Nice build great bike and different from the others.

    Hey,

    Thanks so much for your compliments.
    I am seeing different things in the bike after hearing your responses. :D

    Went for a ~21 miler tonight
    88F, Low wind, dewpoint, and humidity, perfect.

    Went straight over to the lake chain to get the sunshine.
    Hilly all the way over
    Played tag with a woman roadie between stoplights, fun

    I stopped by the rose garden.
    Found this sun dial that said "Only count the sunny days". :D

    Headed down to Lake Harriet beach. Tough to get a shot but easy to cool off in.

    [​IMG]

    Went around Harriet and stopped by the Bandshell
    The low wind helped me but not the sail boats

    [​IMG]

    At the bandshell, they were setting up for a free concert
    Had some nice jazz going

    [​IMG]

    Headed north to Thomas Beach on Lake Calhoun.
    They have great map kiosks for bikes
    Downtown Mpls in the background

    [​IMG]


    Went around Calhoun and ended at the Tin Cup
    Everybody was having fun and lots of bikes in the racks

    [​IMG]

    Went North to my old running spot, Lake of the Isles
    Kids were jumping off this bridge and they asked me if I was going to jump
    I tried to say politely "Not Today" :lol:

    [​IMG]

    Finished Lkae of the Isles and headed Uptown
    The library has some cool metallic art

    [​IMG]

    So my bike fell while trying to balance it :lol:
    The seat moved a bit
    So I headed to the free bike repair place, awesome
    That is the Greenway below


    [​IMG]


    Time to get home so hit the Greenway and could keep a steady pace
    No Handed Action Shot :lol:


    [​IMG]


    Stopped for the last light left on the Sabo bike bridge


    [​IMG]


    I'm tired but I'm happy that the bike is solid.
    I'll response to your comments after some sleep :lol:

    Thanks for Looking.

    Hey,

    Thanks again for the posts.
    I'll respond after a nice nap :lol:

    I had to do my last pics this morning.
    Needed the light to be right.


    I really like this mural on the Angry Catfish LBS
    The lake chain on the left was Friday's ride


    [​IMG]


    Does anybody remember Pogo? Or pay phones? :lol:

    The Hub bike Co-op put this up recently. Very Cool.
    I guess it's a tribute to Co-ops of the past.

    [​IMG]


    Minnehaha Falls didn't have too much light but the clouds started rolling in
    Carrying HRLiner up all the stairs was tough


    [​IMG]


    Found some Cows. They seemed disinterested in my bike.

    Okay, I'm done with riding before the deadline.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hey S,

    I love how the bike came together!

    You really took it out for a tour of the town, too.

    I love the "Bike Baywatch" photo. It's goin' on Coasties.

    I love what you did with this bike. I want to get a deep v set of wheels like that sometime. I want to paint them white so it would look like a fat whitewall from a profile view.

    I'm overwhelmed by all your responses.
    Thank you so much for all your compliments and comments.

    You already know that I love this bike to death.
    Great to see the bike in different scenery. With all those pics you've proved that this bike looks good anytime, anywhere 8)
    Wouldn't look out of place on the salt either...

    +1 Super Clean! Super Sweet & an awesome collection of parts! Go Liners! Amazing how different these frames look with different parts on them! These frames are one of the best looking styles in my opinion. ( I am a little biased though) Great job Steve! :mrgreen: 8) 8) 8)

    Hey,

    I gotta say the quality and creativity of everybody's build is really high!
    What a great competition!

    Thanks for all your positive comments. :D
    I was planning on commenting on everyone's post but I'm overwhelmed at the task.
    So I just gonna say that I think we have a great group of people on the site and I really appreciate it.

    I forgot how many Spaceliners were being built and I'm blown away! 8)
    Great to see so many different ways of doing them.
    I see others agree
    I can't wait to see new ones :D
    Go 'Liners!!

    Thanks for putting up with my lengthy posts but I just a bit proud of my city :lol:
    I didn't put as much work as a lot of other people but
    part of the reason is only 3 months of summer up here.
    It's now 2/3 over, so I wanted to get as much riding in as possible :D

    I saw a few people in the "discussion" thread mention that there is so many cool bikes we need many more ballots :lol:
    I totally agree.
    I'm wondering of someone is going to put up some non-trophy/unoffical votes for honorable mentions like
    Best Pinstriping
    Most Creative Suspension
    Best Stance
    Coolest Tire/Wheel combo
    Best Details
    Most work
    etc, etc, etc
    I think they may all have to be at least ten each :lol:
    Maybe I'll post this in the discussion page but I feel little too new to take the initiative

    One more pic (for now)

    Yes I agree with many others - this is the "Cleanest" bike I've seen in a buildoff. The modern wheels are right at home with the "modern frame" of the '60s. Excellent Execution!!!
