    After gathering parts, pieces, and screws, the build off is finally here. This year I'll be starting with a 1953 Columbia 3 Star Deluxe. It's gonna be a real Hot Rod :mrgreen: My theme is gonna be a bobber, but not just any old bobber 8) There will be a SCHWINNRAY twist as usual :mrgreen: Not sure if I can build a bike as cool as last year, but will see. The plans are secret for now, but I'll sneak a bit out...bare metal :mrgreen: Good luck to all and see you at the finish line 8)

    Here's the start...

    Hope you're starting to feel better.

    I really liked the Young American, but to be honest, I like this frame better. I bet it's going to be awesome. Awaiting the day you submit your riding video. I wish that was a requirement for everyone so we could put practicality into play.

    Good luck... as if you need it!

    That is a nice frame to start with. I am really into checking out the starter threads that everyone is posting with their starter bikes and ideas.

    Re: ★★ Hot Rod Deluxe ★★

    That's one of the coolest spring forks I've seen.
    I have no doubt you will exceed last year's bike, just by different means :D
    It was a very cool bike but you've learned a lot more since then
    I'll be watching...
