    Agree very cool, but for some reason the lightweight is calling out to me... Beautiful ride.
    Nice to have a choice between 3 great bikes I bet!

    Re: Which one to build???Light,Middle or Heavy weight?

    Thanks for the votes!!!!!!! I am so torn..I love the Road Master, it looks real tough and I dig the red seat and grips.. but the Speed Master looks so simple and nimble..would be a great bike to zip around town and it is way different from any other bike I own and also the oldest I own...OHHHHHHHHH :cry: Decisions Decisions....(maybe that will be that name of the one I choose)
    Thanks

    Both. Just figure out which one is best suited for the August deadline, then start the other.

    hmm.. well, I have to say I love the leighweight, and since so few get entered, might give you an edge ( or a hinderance, lol ).
    I'd be more likely to vote for that one.

    however, I would like to see the middleweight done, too - but have a biased / ulterior motive, as I have the twin, same color and all, that I could use ideas to steal :)

    Do the Speed Master 8)

    Roadmaster! I guess I'm partial to fat tire CWC's.

    Re: Which one to build???Light,Middle or Heavy weight?

    Thanks for the comments..In the end all three will be built and posted in the build section...I am still undecided but now it is between the two CWCs..I will post the Columbia build in the build section but it will have to take a backseat to the bike that gets committed to the build off.

    Just fyi, there's a lightweight sub build-off, if you decide to go that way :)

    I'm sure what ever you build will be cool, I loved your transformation last year.

    Re: Which one to build???Light,Middle or Heavy weight?

    Normally, I'm a sucker for middleweights (especially the swoopy Jet Age cantilevers) but I've gotta go with the heavy for this one. Maybe if you had a cantilever bike in the mix I'd feel differently... ;-)

    The shirt is based off of Terry66's Western Flyer Jet Tanker. One of my favorite builds ever.

    Re: Decisions..Decisions 53 CWC Roadmaster

    Another CWC in the mix can't hurt.

    Terry's bike is a Murray frame with a CWC springer, and a great looking bike.
