    Alright enough said! We have been talking about a diamond frame bike build off in the Wright Brothers bike thread in the Bike Gallery. From what I understand the only rule is to use a standard diamond frame as a base for the projects. No votes, no contest, just a friendly build off to get the creative juices going into overdrive once again. I'm in and so is Hooch, so I guess it's a green light. Who's in? Ready...steady...GO! :mrgreen:

    I posted my project in "OTHER BIKES" with a "DFBO" mention in the title. As for a deadline, how about 2 months from now? Let's say 30th of August.

    Hmmm...does it count if you start with a diamond frame and hang a bunch of other crap on it? Wait, what am I askin', that's the whole point!!

    I'll see what I can knock together.

    I called it as only one rule: use of a diamond frame. Open to any interpretation.

    I can feel the building vibes shacking the ground like an oncoming Abrams tank! Unless Rat Rod wants to make a dedicated post, post in OTHER BIKES with the mention DFBO in the title.
