Here's the finished bike:

These pictures were sent to me by someone who bought the bike from the customer who hired me to do the job. They were surfing the internet and came across my site. They found older pictures of this bike, unassembled, before I shipped the parts back to the customer and they recognized them as the bike they just bought. The original customer never sent me any pictures, although I asked several times. Thanks to the new owners of this bike for sending me these shots.

I have tons of pictures of the ordeal I went through with the original customer, who damaged the parts while assembling the bike, but blamed me for the damage. Go figure... I re-did his paint work for free, even after I proved he was wrong. There were tool marks all over the fenders, showing someone who did not know how to assemble a bike, worked on this bike. He should not be allowed near finished paint, ever. I am glad someone got good use out of the major work that went into this project, even if the original owner didn't deserve it.
