    I'd love to see it next to a full size bike so you can get some contrast between the big guy and the small fry! Amazing work!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. This one I plan to loan to the Shelby Police Department to display. The Police Station sits on the site of the former Shelby Cycle Company factory.

    The smallest Shelbys I have are 24" - a boys from the late 1930s and a girls from the 1950s AMF era. Both are still in original condition.
