Yup the bike is gonna turn out great!

Totally off topic (mod delete if not appropriate) >>>>>> I'm sure if he's using one, the camera is ok too. Just the usual operator error of camera shake. Basically the camera moves when the shutter button is pushed. Can be eliminated or reduced by using the correct techniques to hold it still or place on a tripod or some other immovable item. I set mine on milk crate, work bench etc. whatever sits at the right height. Compose after setting it down then press the time release and wait for the click. Instant improvement and much more clear, well focused photos. Harder to do with a cell phone lol.

Here's a good link with some basics: http://digital-photography-school.co...d-camera-shake

The treatment of the front forks and the painted clip on's give the bike a great vintage feel - really like your attention to detail. Looks perfect to me.
