    Looks great! That stance makes me want to hop on and try to wheelie it as I ride away. Looks fun.

    Someone killed Oscar the grouch, cleaned the hide and made a seat!

    Hajaha, I was wondering if that were an Oscar Skin Rug that Carl used... or maybe Merle hunted it down...

    Well I just found way back in post #24 that "I just can't do lime..." Haha. The color has grown on me, it's the flake in it. This is the second time I've used a Testors spray paint on a bike. I've got a couple more ideas yet to try before the deadline... we'll see.

    I'm sure, much like yours, the photos don't do it justice. The Lime Ice has a sparkle to it and I covered the whole thing in DupliColor Effex which added a multicolor microflake to the white and blended it into the Lime so well. I'm more than happy. Someday I'll be shooting flake but for now this is as close as it gets.

    Sweet looking chopper! Nice steerable setup too looks like.

    Beautiful job on the paint and it's properly "Carled-up" now with the shag seat.

    Excellent offering Carl...:41::41:
