I was gonna write that the coconut light is my favourite part, but then I saw the box, and then the seat, and then the handles. Ride safely

Nice! You really did a great job on the fenders and chain guard...1-shot in chamois? I love the color combination!

Gorgeous bike man! A bunch of really neat details and ideas, yet the bike still looks tastefull and not too over the top (like some tiki themed cars and bikes Ive seen). I thought it was so cool I had to post a link up on the Rat Rod Bikes forum too!

Hey Tiki Ray, you get a big thumbs up from here in Canada!! That is a great bike that has been tastefully done. The painting is cool, carvings, wagon/basket and over all look is awesome!!
You did a great job and kept it original.
Thanks for sharing!!
