    Wow! Too many cool things to point out! My favorite part during your build thread was the sprocket, but seeing it done, I gotta go with the severed finger valve caps! Good job!

    LOOK MAW... NO FINGER!

    sjeeeeez... What a cool bike. I like almost everything about this bike. New to me are the fingers. The surfrack complete with fin. The textured and magnetic wooden tank. I could go on and on... I love the humor on this bike.

    Well done!

    Thanks everyone for your input and motivational oomphf.
    I didn't start-off as a mad-man...I was driven to the brink by women :shock: :lol: :lol:
    Thanks...I built it for my 6 yr old son so he can tell all his freinds "my dads bike is cooler than yours" , and also to bother his mother :wink: :roll: Hooray for RR bikes!!!

    Absolutly love the little details on this bike...

    Now...I have stuck my finger in my chainwheel while riding

    Back when i rode BMX bikes around constantly, i felt like the bike was moving sluggish, i went to go pull on the chain, trying to see how tense it was while still pedaling(you know...it usually gets pulled tight again)

    Well, I meant to drag my hand and little did i realize my hand was keeping up with the chain, I got about 2 teeth through my fingers...and i was riding a coaster brake bike. The first thing i thought was....Oh...What...OW!!!
    and pulled my hand out, One bloody grip and sprocket later, I didnt check my chains when i was riding again

    Goodluck!

    AHhhh, you too?...only I was trying to remove some long grass that was stuck in the chain while I was STILL on the bike pedaling...Yep I did a face plant on the hard asphalt in front of some cute girls when I was in 6th grade...those were the days :| :| :)
