    I do have a wheel for my bike. Does that count as progress?

    An awesome mag is better than no awesome mag. So, yes, it counts.

    Sweet! I may have also bought a purple 69 stardust too.

    Ok I DID buy it. this silly tablet computer thingy is confusing to work or I'd put a pic of it too. Found it on my way to Iowa this week. I'll post a pic later. It's probably too nice to cut up. Or is it?

    As a father of a daughter who I've got a '72 Fair Lady for... I have heart burn with "cutting up" a girls bike. But... it's your bike. Hopefully it's in crap condition. :lol:

    It is a replica of the wheel made in wichita. I am planning on taking it apart and hopefully pushing it over the edge. I talked to Dan about his wheel at the fest. That's a neat little bit of local bicycle history.

    I can't cut it up. Crash will kill me. I have another frame donor.

    I wouldn't kill you. :roll:


    But there would be an ambulance and intensive care involved. :mrgreen:

    That is a cool color. You can do some very retro things with the right purple.

    Sweet! I started mocking up the new frame. Cutting up a stingray frame almost made me sick. For a minute.

    Anyone have issue with juice and I working together on this build?
