  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    Re: Blackened (7-10, update)

    Had a chance to paint the rims up. Was thinking of just black, or just gray, and came up with this.
    First, I painted them just black.

    Then I thought of a way to paint them with gray also. I taped off the inside flat area exposing the angled side of the rim, and sprayed it gray.

    And this is how they turned out.

    I also had a chance to come up with something for the handlebars. Started with these old ape hangers.

    Then I got 2 sections off this old exercise bike.
    [​IMG]
    Trimmed off the bolt holes to slide them on the smaller apehangers.

    And I have an idea for these steerhorns that came off a cutting board.

    BLACKENED!"

    Everytime I see this thread that pops into my head. The bike is appropriate to the theme. Looking cool! 8)
