    started this a couple weeks ago not much progress its been soaking in blaster, just today I took the seat off and adjusted the handle bars ,next to remove the wheels and fenders ,my goal is to make it a fully ridable bike out of it and hopefully it will look okay , I have always loved old pen and ink drawings of old people ,barns ,trucks and tractors ,and the story that they tell ,so its already cool to me .

    Re: Haiwatha cwc new name CRAZY HORSE

    'all my parts' ...except for the frame, right? (remember the 'non-pro paintjob?)

    Good to see you back on track starting the build!

    Don't mention it.
    I feel kinda awkward telling people about the rules, but then again.. Better letting you know in an early stage of the build.

    Are there more plans brewing for this bike other then just make it ridable? You're right about it already being cool...
