    sounds good to me, We had been talking just last week about getting back on to this project. This makes it a bit more fun.
    Any ground rules? We are not planning on going overboard but simply building up with parts we have in the shop.

    Got our build on last night. She began to tear parts down for swapping and cleaned up a wheelset. I also taught her how to gently message a frame into excepting 4 inch wheels. We just used a piece of special message wood and a giant hammer :D

    Tires are still a bit tight but squeezed in enough for a mock up start.

    Front forks need chopped a bit.
