    Finish unpacking after moving from a house to an apartment.
    --> Hope to find room to do bike work.
    Ride often, explore the new area, and get in better shape.
    Recurrent flight training.
    Maybe even get a new job! :21:

    I figured the voting booth is up, BO11 is officially in the bag, so I started on my Electra today. Before: 20160801_111225.jpg Now: 20160802_093201.jpg I've got a drop stem and drag bars and some new Oury grips on the way, and a springer for after I'm done w/the new paint/patina.
    My inspiration for the paint job: f15f2c95e1480c7b55584b19db2f5dd5.jpg Oh and I've got to trim about 10 inches off the shifter cable.

    I'm probably retiring from competitive bike building. I wasn't going to participate this year but the Elgin popped up. I need to dispose of some inventory. I'm out of room and energy. I've got stuff I can tinker with without being tied to a schedule. Gone riding...

    Fender extended successfully Now for a layback seatpost and she'll be a rider. Need a 2 or 4 reflector Schwinn, parade bars and a few other things and she'll be done :)

    Oh yeah.... Gonna do a leather fringe mud flap on the rear - dragging tassels

    Gotta plan for the next build off. I've been in every one since I got here and only failed to complete once... even then I laced a crazy set of Bucking Bronco wheels. So... MBBO here I come, with a Hotrod Lincoln.

    Right now I'm having fun watching the ebb and flow of the vote groupings, but also I'm about to work on some First Place Trophy ideas.

    Wow, I could've written this word for word, all of the way down to the Elgin's role in it! We should get together and ride.

    Hey G, like the new 'old' paint job! Adding any Swamp Dog like patina, or is a 'fresh off the showroom floor' vintage trailer make-over? :bigsmile:
