Here is my build, as complete as it's gonna get by the cutoff time. She's a vintage 2011 Huffy Cranbrook. lol. I call her The Longboard. See the build thread here.

I had a blast doing this, and I hope you all enjoy seeing her.

The Longboard




Check out those wood inserts where the reflectors go in the pedals. Bam!


Take a close look. Those are wood spacers. Thanks a million, JimK for the brilliant idea!


And some beauty shots of the rear rack, which was ultimately the beginning concept of this bike.

Great woodworking (novice :?: :!: ) Great build (first :?: :!: ) I like the way the surfboard rack adds visual length to the stubby Cranbrook frame. Love your spacer solution. I had the same problem with my springer on an identical bike. I give your Cranny an A+++ :D

You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the positive comments.

As I mentioned in the OP, this is as finished as it's gonna get for the Build Off, but this bike isn't complete just yet.

Fireproof has offered up his talents for some laser etching into the deck, my cream Fat Franks are on their way, I want to get some basket panniers on this hoss, and some stubby fenders to protect that woodwork from rocks and other flying things. Keep up with the build thread for updates.
