    Here's some highlights from the last two manic days of construction. I hope there's no long term consequences from all the abuse I did to my body over last few days.

My hand is so wrecked I can barely hold a fork.

    a few more pics of the front duck tail. The fenders taper from 4" wide to 3 1/4. Makes for a nice round to gothic center. Now if only I could find some tires that taper as well. o_O 20170805_201357.jpg 20170805_195224 (1).jpg 20170805_192943.jpg 20170805_182232.jpg

    *throws hands up, walks out of room* Amazing work, right down to the wire! As a fellow competitor, I have to say, I think you've got this one in the bag.

    Nah, its not in the bag. Your bike came out great, You made some very complex engineering look effortless. And even if you don't win, at least you still get the award for best wife. If my ex hadn't already left me she would have during this build.
