    If I could build something half as cool as what's in my head, I might be a contender... for now, I'm just having fun daydreaming.

    Oh yeah, I start my new job in 2 weeks, I'm off till then, will be getting everything together! :mrgreen:

    Some inspiration:

    Man, I could go on for days... but look at the details on these!

    Details and overall design are what counts to me, more than "bling" or money. Has to look like everything on it was meant to be there.

    I've got the same frame as your tandem, I'd like to see your chain tensioner and the rear handlebar mount... does it have a headbadge?

    Uhhh... ok. :|


    Haha

    This will not be my build bike, but looking at it makes me want to put a sphere type body over it, kind of like a BMW Isetta. Someone commented on a video of one on eBay and said they had one and put the motor from their pocket bike on it... :shock:

    yoothgeye, You seem like a cool guy, doing alot of work for your church, doing cool builds, well received here on this forum.... Please stop worrying about the BIG Players.. yada, yada, yada.....
    Your build last year got almost 13,000 views... nearly 10,000 more than mine, and I'd say that'd be about average more than most of the threads last year....
    I went back and checked, out of 106 entries yours finished ahead of 73 of them and tied with about a half dozen more... that's better than 2/3 the entire field....
    You made your thread something everyone wanted to follow and read, I can't believe that you did that JUST to get votes.... That much effort had to be because you were enjoying what you were doing and Having Fun.....
    Which is the WHOLE point of the build off and this forum when you really look at it....

    Sorry if any of this is taken in the wrong way, it just sorta pains me to see you clearly bugged by what others are doing (and I don't mean the rules , cause I'm with you there, a bit of a stickler myself).

    Once again I humbly offer this in a spirit of camaraderie...
    and to steal from Jake, Cue " Silver Lining - Stiff Little Fingers "

    Thanks, sometimes I need a reality check. It's easy to get "cabin fever" on a forum after you've been there for a while with little outside interaction with bike people, you start questioning motives. The longest forum I was a member of was mostly people from NC, VA, and SC, so we met up twice a year and that helped break any impressions you had made about them based on what they typed (or how they typed).

    Anyway, I'm going to have fun this year, I'm going to be a big player, and I WILL get more votes with my Pacific Cycles China made bike than someone who drops big cash on an antique frame and high dollar wheels and tires.

    I have been thinking a lot about my final photo shoot... I want there to be action involved... Stay tuned.

    Now I just need a "hook" for my updates to keep people coming back...

    I stopped caring what people think years ago. Most of you probably think I am a bike hoarder and you're probably right. :oops: :mrgreen:

    Youth to me you seem like a fun guy who builds some cool stuff. If you are happy with your work that's all that matters. Rat on!

    From personal experience, you hit the nail right on the head! YG is one of the coolest guys I have met in a while! Would bend over backwards to help someone, LOVES what he does (whatever he decides to do), and is very creative in his approach to his bike-building.

    He'll do well in the build-off! As for me, I still have a TON to do, and even more to learn!

    You're on the right site! I can't begin to tell you how much I have learned since being here. I used to pick up bikes just because I thought they were cool, now I know what some are worth and I actually make money from some of them. Also I learned that not every bike is worth fixing, sometimes they are worth more parted out than if they were put together. I have also discovered the art of the deal when it comes to negotiating prices and bartering.

    I have learned how to win a build-off through manipulation and bribery, you have all just been my pawns!

    (maybe I should've waited till after the build-off to bring this up... :oops: )
