    I've been here just about 1 month,I've learned a lot so far..I don't reckon I'll do anything that hasn't been done before..

    I am naming mine 64 because that is the year I was born and since my frame has no #'s..I've decided it must be a 1964...
    I do have a vision in my head of how I want it to look....I will be happy to just achieve that goal...
    No plans to repaint,maybe some pinstriping and a Tattoo Idea I have in mind to be revealed later..

    I'm confused - who gets the tattoo, you or the bike?

    Him, I told him only tramp stamps are allowed.

    Last year I built a bike from the year I was born. I'm with you! (even if you can't prove it, haha)

    I also plan on Suicide shift ...My mom asked me what "Suicide shift" meant...I replied "It means I'll probably die while riding it!!"

    Her response...You're not big or old for a spanking!! Hahahaahahahaha

    After thinking about what I wanted to end up with I realized that Gassers were my inspiration.
    Thus, the thread title change....

    Cool! I like the idea of a Gasser Bike. Here's some inspiration for you from a photo I took at the Lone Star Roundup a few years ago.
