  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.

    Hey There.
    What an awesome site with some good lookin stuff.
    My name is Jeff and live in Pleasanton, CA
    I just got back into bikes being that collecting Cadillacs was too expensive. I went to the shed and pulled out a few bikes that I have had and needed some work. Nothing too old but in my opinion some staples on the cruiser scene. First up a 1st edition Electra Rat Fink, Second - a GT DYNO Kustom Kruiser Roadster and Finally the newest out of the pile a Felt MP Cruiser in the Drab Green. As I pulled these out and tore them down I found online the Mircagi Falcon GT-R and decided that was the cheapest, quickest way to get somewhat what I wanted for under $200...so I bought it and have that too but being dissapointed in the size I have been building on the Rat Fink and the Roadster as well. Both being almost finished or should I say "Rideable". (are they ever really finished??) I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how.

    Jboss, Welcome aboard. I'm new too. I love your bikes. Would love to see more pics when you make some changes. That's one thing I've found here, is that when you modify and post it, the stoke flows. I dig your MP too. I kinda wish I needed it :mrgreen: .
