For those of you who haven't seen the Build Thread, we are hard at work bringing the "Speed Forum" bike to life. The bike will be raffled off and the proceeds will be donated to the site to help Steve maintain our virtual playground. After Double Nickle and Dr. T's recreation of the Rust Rocket Deluxe last year the bar was set. Garagegoon got the ball rolling planning, getting parts lined up, and really stepped up to build a bike to equal last year's auction bike. Garagegoon had some family issues arise and he handed the reigns over to me. Here is what I brought home to begin with. Pick currently has the first batch for powder coating, super gloss black and ivory. mikesbikes36 is currently working on recreating the truss rod fork set up from the picture. Once he is done and gets them shipped to pick he will get them coated as well.
