Love the bike!

Very nice combinations of brass, copper and steel, with some great wood and leather! Well worth the five year process. You never gave up!

Your pics look magazine feature ready, Noddy.  Watching the process for all these years only makes the unveiling even better.  Maybe one of the coolest projects ever to grace this site.  Please make sure you submit it to shows and magazines.  The world needs to see this beauty.
