    I had one guy swear he drove one of "these" in Vietnam... :roll:

    Probably a wage war in China... where the employees lost.

    Thank you, I will, this is a first for all of us.

    Thanks, I am, and I think Kingfish said the second part as well... that guy *sure* talks a lot.

    This is my little bicycle rider that is having surgery tomorrow morning (5/30). He has a hydrocele, which is nothing too scary, all little boys have one, but it usually goes away by the time they are a year old. If not treated they lead to a hernia, so his surgery tomorrow is the same as a hernia repair surgery. He will be put to sleep for the surgery. Recovery is 1 week of not swimming and 2 weeks off the bike! He already knows this and is prepared.

    Looks like you're little guy is waiting for you to put the wheels on that sidecar and hook it up to a bike to take it for a test drive....... Good luck tomorrow...

    Good luck with the surgery. I had the same surgery when I was a little boy. The only thing I remember about it was my brother bringing me a toy airplane in the hospital.

    Best wishes!

    Austin's surgery went textbook perfect, he was said to be the perfect patient. Once the anesthesia wore off he had more energy than ever, he wanted to go to a toy store, so we went to a Toys R Us (not a store he usually sees) and he was running and jumping and climbing and I turned around to find him riding a bike! Oops. 2 hours out of surgery.

    Thanks for all the prayers guys. I promise to build something soon.

    What a relief for you I'm sure... And to see him on a bike two hours musta have put a smile on your face!!

    Hey... my name is Justin and my sons name is Austin too!! His mom wanted a Jr. but I didn't, so A was the compromise.. :)

    I was proud and frightened at the same time, it's not that he can't ride, it's that he shouldn't so he can heal!

    Very close on the name, I'm not a "Jr." type guy (though my grandfather's first name was Junior), but my dad is Arthur Douglas and has always gone by A.D., I am Justin Douglas, and when we were having a boy I knew he was going to be a Douglas as well, but I wanted an "A" name so that if he wanted to he could be A.D. like his Papa, so we chose Austin and *then* realized it was just 1 letter off from my name.

    Nope, no plans for speed holes, it's going to be heavy, but the 26 tooth crank will help get it around easily.

    That's great news, I remember my son having his tonsils removed when he was 3 and when they brought him out he looked so small and lifeless. It is hard to see them go through something like that, but they usually come back strong!

    Good luck, Rg

    I was expecting a lifeless little pathetic lump, but he came out more energetic than ever. Bought him a video game to keep him away from his bike.

    Your son has a cool name! Thanks man, we've been high-fiving a lot lately since we've been playing this Need 4 Speed Wii game, I'll just tell him one of the high fives if from Jake.

    Thanks man... let's keep the 'mod' thing on the DL... :roll: :mrgreen:

    Well, as you see the sidecar frame is mostly built, I've been waiting to find some sheet metal to wrap it, I've had plenty of opportunity to have aluminum cover it, but my plans need steel. Talked to dad and he's going to score me some old duct work to wrap it.

    I'm most worried about the details on this one.
