    I know it's late for entering but I had to get all my traveling out of the way. Now I just hope I have time to get it finished before the deadline. This is where I'm starting from with a 24" Roadmaster and only a little bit of direction.

    This is a going thing now. Like to see this finished by deadline. Looking good so far. Maybe you'll finish yours before mine :shock:

    i really got a kick out of this one, so much so that i just peeled all the stickers of a similar 26' frame from a Huffy "Thunder Ridge" (with "Super-sized Tubing" made of Titanium Boron Steel, no less :D ) as a start towards the intention of building up something similar.

    thanks for the inspriration!
