    Mine has been 99% finished for close to two weeks now. I just need to get out someplace and get some photos of it... Almost forgot to do that last year! :oops:

    Its gonna be close for me. Way WAY too ambitious a project for me to take on as my "first" build. Most likely will have to take some time off work and skip on sleep some to get this done in time.

    I doubt it will finish as I pictured it in my head but in the end I should have a riding bike. Never try to do a build off on a bike that you actually ride all the time. Makes it near impossible to tear it down and work on coz then your daily rider is gone.

    I'm on a super tight timeline being i entered so late. I should have mine done, just having to delete some of the things i had plannned to do because of budget and time. If all goes good it should be in paint by end of next week and then finally assembly.

    I was waiting until paypay to continue, on the 31st. Then it was going to be a rush to beat the deadlline on the 3rd. Then they declared an extra holiday here, moving my payday to the first of August. so it will really be a rush to finish.

    I literally shoved my cycle truck plans into a dark corner. Summer became busy and ive been riding more than building.
    However.......... I did just get a super sweet WF frame and fork :39::39:
    maybe its too late

    I was well on track, but now waiting for parts has me worried, as it is out of my control. Good thing is it is basically finished as is, just would prefer the new parts were here so it can be finished "properly!"

    My project is for my boss' daughter's birthday, which isn't till the end of August. I've had a couple work and school slow downs, and I may not make the build-off deadline, and I'm not going to rush for it.

    I don't believe I'm going to finish the Lucky Lady in time, :(. If I don't, I'm going to finish it up in the BUILD section.

    I posted mine in the finished section last night. That was cutting it close.

    I wont get done. Too much going on and the weather hasn't been paint conducive when I've actually had time. It will get done anyway, just at my own pace.
