    I'm definitely going to participate. Class 2 for me, as the classic bikes in my area are either boucou bucks or scrap metal. Most of my custom bike builds have an old school flavor anyways

    I’m in. (how have I not seen this thread until today?) (I lurk more than I post)

    Using a factory frame for the first time (vs. scratch.) I’m 1 for 3 in finishing, always said I needed to start with a real frame to up my odds. Got one for Christmas and haven’t had time nor weather to work on it. Looking forward to seeing all the builds.
    ... to the T-shirt store!

    Cool shirt, ain't no way I'm paying $33 to have one sent to me though. You need to hook up with a silkscreener that can make you shirts for $5-$6 and sell them for $15 instead of these online services that make $20 profit per shirt.

    Any idea what's coming up next in the way of build offs? Fall, winter, BMX, muscle bike, or whatever... It may help me decide if a want to build something in the "other" class... (other being not super modified unlimited anything goes what else is there class) (We haven't had a Klunker, Offroad, BMX build in a while.)

    I know that I won't have a chance to start on anything for the next couple of months (maybe longer). I'll have to see if I can squeeze in something towards the end. All things bike related are on the back burner right now. I am still too busy working out some health issues with my father.

    Dude, you should check that non-drive side crank....I think it's bent....and you should probably be wearing a helmet when you practice one handed wheelies. On the up-side, the Capri length jeans REALLY suit you! Pure awesome!

    Thanks for the input....no worries on not buying a shirt, it's not for everybody.

    I've done it all in the area of shirts. I'm a professional Graphic Designer with 25 years of working experience. I've gone through probably 20 screen printed shirt orders during the 13 years of running the forum. Unfortunately these days I don't have the time to order the shirts, package them and ship them out one by one to everyone. The drop ship method is all I can provide...and you're right, the printer is making most of the money.

    As I have been out cleaning the BACK40 and moving stuff around to get ready for BO 14, I have come across 3 complete wheelsets, all vintage, all in great condition, that I would be willing to part with for somebody who needs wheels for the build off.

    I am not selling these, but rather accepting shipping costs in order for them to find good homes.

    Send me a personal message in Conversations if you are interested and for more details.

    I have 3 build off shirts already. Try to get one for every build off I actively participate in, but I honestly don't remember them being that expensive? Usually for something like this I don't think too hard at $20 plus shipping, but when I saw $33 I had to reconsider. Figured with a template store site you probably weren't profiting too much from it. I'd rather support the site directly. Why is the build off shirt $25 and the rest $20 though? Were the others more before and being cleared out now? Doesn't seem like there would be any difference between shirts to change the price?
