    Hello, my name is Emmis. This is my first build off. I am 15 years old and got this bike a few years ago for my birthday. For now, as you can see, my bike is named "Old Blue" because of it's color.

    So, here she is (as of 5/10/13)

    Thanks guys! And so far I've decided to paint it the aqua color of my 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente. Maybe even change the name to "match" the car somehow.

    Is that a '64 Fairlane in the background? It looks pretty sweet!
