    Ha! Gerty just finished the second version of the Thunderbolt Grease Slapper... all kidding aside.
    Anybody wanna take bets on @OddJob finishing first?

    I've withdrawn my builds, just not sure I'll get to them.
    If I do have time I'll make new threads.

    Nothing major going on, just haven't been into it lately.

    Unless a Moderator permanently deletes a thread, a mod can bring them back for you, just let me know if you want them later on... ;)

    Don’t forget Parkinson’s Law...
    Parkinson's Law, invented by Cyril Northcote Parkinson, alleges, “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.” ... In general, Parkinson's Law holds true even when a job can be finished in a much shorter amount of time.

    And all this time, I thought it was just me procrastinating.

    At what point does Murphy's law override Parkinson's?
    Or vice-versa?

    Can they work in unison? Problems keep expanding as long as there is time for more problems to develop? Yikes!

    Hate to break it to you, 24 here! :) You seem to be more active than I am, so you should still take it as a win!:thumbsup:

    Not building a frame this year for sure, because of lack of time. But possibly i will take part in class 1, since i guess i'd need to build some bike until i leave to Amsterdam this July. Won't promise much :)
    In the end we both are having fun building bikes, so i take it as win-win :D

    Hey Grand Master Rat Rod, I'm back and I want to play too. As usual I have a question. Early in 2018 I got a bent up J.C. Higgins and started cutting it up to repair and modify it, then got involved in Build off 13 and used my repair parts for that build. I only got as far as cutting the Higgins. I would like to use that and the back end of a Worksman trike I have. I can't wait to get started, I'm late as usual, and I look forward to hearing from the great folks I talked to last year. Please get back to me and thanks much

    I'll take feedback from anyone in reference to my email on 5/19 about using parts I have, I'm dying to start building as soon as I get approval of my stuff. Have a great day everyone

    I'm not anybody but others are using previously modified frames in the buildoff. Sounds to me like you're not done cutting it up anyway. I would say you would be fine to start a Class 2 build.
