    The bike I used is a 1950s firestone. I found it for $75 at a swap meet in Tennessee. I entered it in the Anything goes build but desided not to use it for that.

    Running neck and neck so far. What gets me is the poll has 138 hits and only 30 people have voted. I mean, really!?!?

    My trophy arrived today and I must say, Double Nickle went above and beyond on the trophy. It showed up after I left for work, but my wife sent me a couple of pics of it. I will get some better pics of the trophy with the bike tomorrow. Thanks Dubby!!!

    I'm going to have to say Udall - since I grew up in Derby.
