    Re: BAD APPLE Update 7/18 NEW PAINT, NEW PICS!!

    im with the doc and gold stream i thought the same a few years back when we lost my mother in law to cancer .. but she shows up in lil things we do every day...not day goes by that we don't laugh at the good times or something that reminds us that she is still with us...you'll see when you least expect it he will show you he is and always will be with you..now get your butt in gear and hit the build with running speed....MOTIVATION

    Re: BAD APPLE Assembly begins.............Tomorrow

    Ok, after baking this frame & parts in the 100+ heat for five days, I think it is cured enough for assembly. I believe I have all parts painted now except for a few nuts & bolts. We will see how it goes together tomorrow. I expect there will be some issues to straighten out, but I am anxious to get back on it. I'm happy with the paint results so far, not perfect, but not bad for an amateur! Back in the race, with no time to waste! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I can't believe I somehow missed going back and seeing your pre-paint mock up.
    Get this sweet ride together!
    I can't wait to see it with the green apple and black chrome.

    Me too buddy, I've been to 2 funerals this week & am ready to occupy my mind with my build. Planning on workin on it all day tomorrow. Talked the wife into lettin me bring it into the basement for assembly (ain't air conditioning great!), so @ least I won't be baking outside.

    Thanks for lookin guys! 8)

    Hey Pick,

    Your pics make me happy!
    The green on the frame looks metallic and deep. Nice job!
    The combo of the Green and Black chrome looks really cool! 8)
    The stance is long and low with the added rear drops and springer fork.
    That thing is gonna ride smooooth! :D

    I can't believe we've got the same frame :lol:

    Keep up the good work!

    Go Spaceliners!
