1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    My first "real" bike.
    Restored it a couple years ago.

    Then my kid won a black 26" retro cruiser Murray at an Earth Day celebration.
    Not sure I feel like taking pics of it.

    My RBBO2 bike, Rat Rod Lincoln. Will post a picture tomorrow of what it now looks like, never liked the fork and the apes are a pain at times more of a moto klunker now.

    Wow! Do I love that bike. Simple, understated, and looks fast while standing still. Pretty much my personal gold standard for rating other rat rods.
