    I've been all over the board about this year's build-off. Everything from a scratch build stretch cruiser to a quick rat build of a recent fresh find to a new fiberglass tank design that's in the 'works' for a Worksman INB frame while all of the time seriously considering sitting this one out entirely!

    But... I have a commission for a custom bike that needs to be put ahead of any others so I decided to enter it since I will be building it anyway.

    The bike will be in many ways similar to another one of my Build-off bikes 'Raceliner'. The person that I'm building this for stumble on to a picture of the Raceliner on Pinterest and contacted me about building one for him. The original Raceliner is the inspiration, but Quoise will stand on its own and will not be just a copy.

    Sorry, not this time. I'll be going back to the TRM roots for this one with a Spaceliner.:happy:

    Just did a search and didn't come up with anything. Could be though, Quoise is a very common name.:21:

    Only thing I could find was somebody is using it for a Roblox gaming name.

    To use it as an adjective you'd need to change it to quoisey. Jim had a quoisey feeling as he entered the shop..:D

    Sounds like some lucky dude will be getting a really cool bike!

    The Raceliner was one of my favs. Inspired my One-Liner build, in fact. This will be cool! RaT oN~!

    Thanks!
    For the post RRBBO9 members wondering about the Raceliner mentioned above, here's a LINK.

    And here's a photo of the inspiration for QUOISE...

    I joined after RRBBO09 but remember Raceliner was on the front page. Spent lots of time staring at that pic.

    So how close will this be to that? Will it have the dana? Pipes? What's the plan man...:nerd:

    I’ve had the pleasure of riding both the Raceliner and the Decoliner.
    TRM builds some of the best quality bikes I’ve seen.

    I’m sure QUOISE will be no different.

    I have a feeling we're looking at the same paint chips for our bikes... the irony is both #11 posts... this is weirding me out.
