It has been a ton of fun working on this bike the past couple of months. I have been so inspired by the creativity of many the members on this site. Whether or not it gets any votes, it has been an honor to work alongside so many talented people. Here is Orange Crush. (I am not much of a photographer, but I think my iPhone did ok.)

Here is the starting point...

And the finish line...

Thanks for checking out the finished thread...if you want to see how I got from start to finish...
Please check out the build thread for all the little details (tank/drink machine, bottle cap fenders, taillight etc.)

you are a very good photographer... iPhone? whoa!
and the bike is just right there with the photos. So many nice touches, but I noticed where you mounted the bottle rack. great idea!
I'm assuming that the bottle in it is an antique orange crush?
The Crush bottle on the ground is very creative! Props!

The rusty frame with the gloss orange is a great color combo, especially those drop center wheels in all orange, very nicely done sir.

Like I said in your build,this bike made me smile...Dream machine and I lurv the tank as a drink dispenser . 8)

It takes 78 muscles to pedal a bike,98 if you are smiling while riding.
And 200 to stop yourself going over the handlebars,cause you were smiling like a sap... :mrgreen:

I agree with peatbog pic.6 one with the empty bottle is brilliant,great lighting,captures the bike 100%

Thanks so much guys...it turns a lot of heads, and I like that there are different things that each person notices...little details to discover. Was tough to know if I was going over the top with too much theme stuff, but I think it still looks classy without being gaudy. Good luck to all those who still have to finish their builds!

Great execution of a cool theme , a sweet looking board tracker build on it's own , but the extra touches knock it out of the park :!:

Thanks so much.
Honestly I was hoping for a couple of votes. Never would have imagined double digits. I rode her to work the other day and could not wipe the smile off my face. That is enough reward for me.
Peace to you
