Once again Brian you have gone above and beyond with yet another one of your builds.

Always dig what you build. Reminds me of a lot of the bikes I used to see in the Valley BITD.

Thank you everyone I really like how this one turned out too. Like most of my bikes I didn't go for anything high end when it came to the parts I chose to use. Most of the parts I had in my stash so the build up was fairly easy. I only had to find the wheels, grips, chain and pedals.

I try to make my bike builds "coolly understated" so the more you look the more you'll like. I think that is why I rarely win anything at gatherings that do awards. I try to go for clean not bling. Not that it matters I get a bigger charge out of someone that gets lost for five minutes looking over a bike I put together. That in itself is it's own reward.

 

A cool fact: I knew from the get-go I wanted black tuffs on this bike. I also knew I wanted to use the front sprocket that was on this frame when I got it. But I didn't realize until I put it together that the hole pattern of the sprocket and the wheels is damn near identical. It's one of those little things that make this bike really pop for me and made the project that much more personally sweet.

Yea Donnie not quite as soft as the real Oury's but not rock hard at all. I knew when I found them they would do the trick for this build.

Backwards? Yes more than likely that one is. No doubt a brain fart on my part, but the truth is I do it on purpose just to see who starts jumping up and down pointing their fingers and pulling out their hair. Gotcha! laugh.gif
