    I have been holding on to the X-53 for the build off... I really don't have a plan yet. I know that I am going to build the tank.

    Put gas AND batteries in the tank... and take a video, maybe it will be louder than a jet engine... :wink:

    Good luck!

    If you take this stylized frame to start, to the same heights as your lost BuildOff Bike, we're all in for a treat!

    A rack! Oh no, the curse! Maybe the first bike with a rack to place in the top 3?

    Nope, that honor goes to lobsterboyx with "HIS" X-bike. 3rd in BO#4.

    I'm rooting for TCV though, unless I keep MY rack!

    These were some of the most awesome bikes ever built in my book. I'd just love to see this thing cherried out but I'm sure you're gonna do somethin funky and cool with it.

    Re: X- Strip

    Unassembled and dismembered the bike today.

    3 hours of SUPER FUN STRIPPING THE PAINT TIME, my favorite thing to do ever (not). Now it's time for SUPER FUN BODY WORK TIME, also know as 3 weeks of wets sanding and straightening.

    And now it's SUPER FUN BEER MAKING, welll actually that is fun :D

    Re: X- STRIP

    What Build Off Beer are you making?
    Is it Frightliner - Doppelbock Jet Fuel from Rat Rod Bikes Brewery (Kingfish Bottling Co)?
