    OK, I'm excited. Cleaned my shop today, in the morning I will carry the Murray up the steps and put it on the bike stand... sometime in between church and church.

    I've been sending out TONS of PMs and it seems like everyone wants to vote for a flat black bike with red wheels and whitewall tires. Just a little hint for everyone. Good luck.

    Noted. This tends to help people who know someone who can pinstripe and can somehow get them to do the job. Oh wells for me.

    Did everyone clear their workbench for the build-off? I just realized that besides the build off bike, I have about 5-6 other projects that need to be finished in the same time frame. :cry:

    Right, the trophy thread should be locked at the top out the build off thread. You should ask rat rod about that!

    Is there a closing date on entering the RRBBO? I'm wondering if there should be one... I remember being not to fond of new members entering just days before the deadline with a 'freshly' build bike without an extensive build history.
    ...or am I taking things too seriously again..?

    Competition makes me do that, you know...
    :wink:

    Don't forget, I have your adress now.
    just let me know if it hurts too much and I'll send you some band-aids...
    :mrgreen:

    (I think I'll pass on the idea of setting up a poll... for now.)
