Whoa... that was a quick three months! Still have a list of things that I want to revisit but I'm calling it done for now.

This ended up turning out quite different than I envisioned. Funny thing is the more it seemed to divert from the original intention the better I liked it. Thanks to all for the encouragement, helped to see set backs more as opportunities.

TJ, someone on this site has "Turning bicycles into rideable art" as their byline. You sir, have turned art into a rideable bicycle. Amazing design and execution! Watching you change gears (pun intended) in design aspects for functional purposes, and then having the 'form' be enhanced as well....wow! Love everything about this! Well done.:41:

And yes, please stick around and show us more!

Well Tom, I knew from your first post almost a year ago that you would not disappoint with your builds! You have a masterful vision for design and this bike (along with your others) proves it out. Great job. And as usual, I'm looking forward to more! Bravo!:41:
