    And to yoothgeye .... I'm sorry no bones just yet ... I'm focused as much as I can be.... I was a mess last night at work with all the ideas and possibilities and angst.... I'm focused now
    I never finished last years Build Off .... I didn't touch a bike, other than to ride it for almost 4 months afterwards .... I'm finishing this year cause I'm not going to feel like that again...

    I'm too old to know about the Great Space Coaster, unless you are talking about the great Space Ghoster.

    As far as Krofft shows to get inspiration from, how about something from HR Pufnstuf!!!!???? :p

    There was definitely a 'chemical influence' at work with the Sid & Marty Krofft shows!

    Home with kids today, instead of sitting around in the house I took them for a drive through the country, ended up in a little town and found a free exercise bike! PARTS!

    We can hardly wait! Maybe by then I, the voices in my head, and the demons that keep me up at night, will have come to an agreement on which bike to build. :shock:
    No matter what I build, It's gonna be awesome! :mrgreen:

    We won't get back home until May 14th. Going to Southeast Asia. Burma, Bali, Indonesia, and Malaysia. It's gonna be a hot one, but exotic.
    I hope that I get decent internet access so that I can see everyone's build threads as they start.

    Who knows what kind of inspiration I will get over there? Maybe I'll come back and build a Buddha Rat Rickshaw!!!!?????

    Seriously... First the Spaceliner now the Buddha Bike ??????
    I wasn't planning that for the Build Off, but I'have the PERFECT "Headbadge" that I've been wanting to use....

    I think it might be Hindu not Buddhist though....

    You're both wrong, she's Mayan and she says y'all can't finish your bikes according to her calendar.

    I only needed 30 days to get 28th place last year. This year I will have more than twice the time, so I should be able to get around 56th place or more.

    Pretty cool!! Believe it or not, it never crossed my mind to keep my eye out for Build Off parts while I was over there. Thanks for the inspiration.
    I think you are right about it being Hindu. The countries we are visiting are Buddhist (Burma), Hindu (Bali), and Muslim (Indonesia and Malaysia).

    Cue up Crosscut Saw from the Hindu Love Gods and get to Hypin'.

    It does kind of remind me of the evil Tiki that Greg Brady was wearing when he wiped out on his surfboard in Hawaii.

    Marsha, Jan, and Cindy had a fit!!!

    I won't be starting right on the 1st, as I am working a LOT of hours, with a 3 hour round trip commute to boot.

    But I've got my plan, and I'll get her built before the deadline, I'm sure.

    Alright, Double Nickle started this thread then disappeared, so everyone in here needs to agree not to vote on his bike, even if it is as awesome as last year's bike. OK? Good.

    Now, in these next 17 days what all does everyone need to finish up before starting the build-off and becoming consumed with their projects.

    I want to swap a wheelset and my tall apes onto my 1956 JC Higgins and turn it into a rider. This will also entail fixing the loose 3 piece crank and putting a straight fork on it or bending the original.

    Who else has a pre-build-off project?
