    23 pages of fun and coolness already, and then you post a bunny picture too??? I guess the rest of us are playing for second. :wink:
    You know wabbits are delicious right? :shock: :lol:

    Peatbog, think you could sell me some of those special glasses?

    Well, some of you are playing for third. :shock: :p

    Yes, some are delicious, it's not that I couldn't eat a pet, but I've seen what *she* eats. :?

    I can understand that last line, raising animals is almost enough to turn a macho man into a vegan.

    I'm just playing for funsies this year, 8)
    but hey we gotta counteract the charm of the beautiful kids and the cute bunny somehow!

    Look at my frame choice and ideas and tell me I'm playing for more than fun! haha

    I managed to build another bike tonight instead of working on my build off bike. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=54939&start=75#p546647

    Maybe I'll get an award for most bikes built during build-off instead of working on your build-off bike.

    Thanks, it's fun, I can't wait to get some real time to work on it, this "few minutes here" and "few minutes there" make it really hard to get anything done, and it's so BIG that I can't just go into the shop to work on it, I have to pull it (and everything else) out to get anything done. Was so much easier last year when I just went upstairs in my shop and the 76er was sitting up there ready for work surrounded by parts and tools, this bike won't fit up the steps anymore. :roll:

    Did you see how JoKeR63 stretched out his chopper? How are you stretching yours, I wanna see, I have another and it will be built after the build-off (probably during at the rate I'm going with building other bikes).

    It is going to be easy to catch up if you keep having a full week between "real" updates. :p :mrgreen:

    Today was my day off, so I went in to work from 8:00 till noon, then I brought the kids home and did some more office work here. Mowed the lawn. Went out to the shop to find a couple boxes to pack some things to ship out. And now it's raining.

    Usually this would've been my best day, and this weekend... wasted already, going camping. I should be on page 4. :(

    Okay, I can't sit on the sideline and see one of our cheerleaders drop deep into page two.

    PB, Ostriches aren't so bad! we enjoyed ostrich steak when we were in South Africa! Awesome red meat that you would swear was filet mignon. They also make great Biltong (jerky).

    YG, You just have to promise us a "true" non-bunny update before the end of the week!!!!! :p 8)

    Thanks guys!

    Just returned from camping, had only enough room for the older 2 kids bikes, had fun... I guess, I needed a hotel room, not a tent.

    Tomorrow back to work then I take my son to Duke Children's Hospital for surgery Wednesday morning. This week should be slow, but I will try to escape and build a part to show you guys by the end of the week.

    Rather that go OD over the chrome of you JJ frame, maybe you should consider using Dulicolor's anodized green that is meant to go over chrome. You could dull up the chrome a bit first. Then have your other parts contrast with the JJ frame rather than match it exactly.

    Just a thought.

    I like the image in your head, but I'm sticking to theme on this one. When I'm done I want ignorant people to ask if it was really a military bicycle. haha

    I had a 1986 Suzuki Samurai for over 10 years, I spray bombed it a few times and for a while it was OD and I had dummies all the time asking me "What year Willys Jeep is that?" haha
