    Thanks bro, I am still rolling through and framing the pics from my rides. I thought this one was pretty cool. It was 95 and humid today, to the Sago palm fit right in.

    Had some fun with the distinctive shadow of Western Sizzler today.

    Hey @OddJob , I revisited this ratty backdrop again today.

    I also took a new approach to my fountain pics. I found a sunlit park area with the fountain in the background.

    Nice background, so hard to set up a great shot without too much distraction happening behind.

    Btw, I know it’s late in the game but that massive headlight might balance out the front end better hanging off the stem rather than the fender? And make room for a cool fender ornament

    Don’t hate me... ;)

    I like this Pabst shot. Added a little effect, the blue in the rim and on your parts resembles the neon of the sign.

    No hate at all man. I appreciate the input, but even if there was time left, I wouldn't move the light. It would take away from the El Toro handlebars way too much. I really like it best in it's current location.

    Groovy effect OJ!!!! I like that pic as well, but the lighting is good enough for it to be the "voting" pic. It will definitely be in the mix of other photos though.

    And here is the "Official" Dance Video for the Western Sizzler. I believe this is the very first time a build off bike has ever had an Official Dance Video :D :rockout::banana::banana::rockout:

    I think I have narrowed down my voting pic down to these.

    On the first one crop the right side. To the line by the tire.
    The second...crop the left side and crop the plant some.
    Third...crop to the front of the car more. Right side just a tad.
    The fourth...right side closer to show off the rear(LOL)

    I won't lie - I still miss the speedo. :blush:
    But with or without it the final result is still one of the highlights of this build off.:tmi:

    Yeah, I wanted to use the speedo, but once I laid the paint on and held the speedo in place, it just didn't vibe with the chrome and paint to me. It will make it's way to a build some day.

    Glad you like the build!!!

    Thanks for the feedback Jake. I think I have picked my pic. Now I need to build my Finished thread already. Time is wasting away.
