    Absolute balance and grace. The psycho-physiological equilibrium is staggering. It belongs in the Museum of Modern Art Permanent Design Collection.

    Thanks, I can't take full credit, My friend Brooks who can be seen in that last photo I posted was sympathetic to my cause and logged about 35 hours over the past two weeks. He's got mad skills and I'd give him a task and when it was done I found myself wondering if it came out better than if I had done it myself. I think if I do this next year I'm just going to put a lazy boy recliner in the shop and offer periodic instructions to him while he does all the work.

    Are you keeping it bare metal?

    The goal is to get the metal as close to perfect as I can and then have everything nickel plated. I haven't begun to investigate what that will cost yet but its only money right?

    Man, we all need to get friends like that!!! We could crowd-source builds like the old auction bikes that were done here.
    Thanks for treating us to more photos. This is an amazing build.

    It was like having a strong tailwind at the end, and I really needed it because I was reaching my physical limitations.

    absolutely astonishing,! Captain Nemo would be proud. Its like he would ride this coming off the Nautilus, after traveling 20,000 leagues under the sea. Bravo !

    Okay so the first ride wasn't very epic but I think I can sort it pretty easily.

    Its the chain hitting the cutout on the fender. I just need to open up the hole a little.
