    A lot of work. I doubt many people will have any idea that this is not a bike factory product. Great job. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Awesome work welding this bike together. What a roomy frame, and it is in my favorite frame style. Outstanding built from scratch bike.

    And the non standard color scheme pops.

    Excellent job.

    Great looking bike. Perfect stretch and you'd never know it was a homemade frame. Nice job.

    As previously mentioned, this thing looks factory from the era! Beautiful frame work, it doesn't look out of balance or 'stretched' at all.

    Just my 2 cents, but I think your 'final photo' should be your second from the top. That weathered blue barn wood is a perfect backdrop to your colors! *bump her up to the top* :nod:

    Nice work all around!:thumbsup:

    Thanks, It's hard to get the scale of it in the pics. I am 6 feet tall and the seat is just right for me.

    Thanks, my wife and I stood in the spray paint aisle at Walmart holding up cans of paint to see which colors went together and which ones didn't.

    I love how well this build turned out man!!!
    It easily earned one of my votes. One of the most seamless gender or stretched builds I've seen.
    CONGRATS!!!!
