    I'm NOT sure. But you guys might be the very FIRST brother-sister on the forum. 8) Looking forward to YOUR first build, RetroGlide.
    Oh yeah! NICE job on the lettering!....Bike keeps getting better and better, Nick.

    Edited: I forgot your Dad is a member too!....Might be the first Father-son-daughter. Mom next? :lol:

    We already knew that dad might have had his hand in this, but now that sister is on the forum too, that makes 3 contributing members... I think you broke the rules and must withdraw from the build-off. :mrgreen:

    Looks great.

    UPDATE #16

    RetroGlide helped me out on the lettering, and I cut out the plate from a Coffee Can :wink: I put "1974' on the plate because that is the year of the frame :D

    In all seriousness, this is a sweet ride, nice mix of 'Rat' and 'Rod'. The fact that your sis and dad helped, man, that's just cool and speaks to the unity of your family.

    You are double lucky, cool bike and a cool fam.

    Cheers to you all,
    Dr. T

    Thank you! :D Maybe I'll pick up a couple odd jobs sometime, but I'm always so busy with my brother's bikes. :mrgreen:

    And thank you everyone else for the nice comments on this bike! Nick really poured his heart and soul into this thing. :D

    Believe it or not Nick did all the work himself except shortening the chain.I have little patience for mechanical things in my older years. :mrgreen:
    I am more surprised everytime I see the bike.
