    Last year I completed my bike for under $100 and I talked about the money a lot because of the rules, but of all the things that people commented on, nobody seemed to care that I spent very little money, so I guess it's a non issue, so I won't worry about announcing it this year, but I will say, everything I build is cheap.

    Love your list, you can use the word "brotherhood" alone without offending any females, if it is offensive ladies, please speak up.

    Sometimes we are overly sensative for no reason because we wouldn't have offended anyone in the first place, don't get me started. haha

    I am just happy I don't have to strip any paint this year, what a nightmare that was!

    Hot chick? Whatever, I intentionally kept myself out of the photos last year so as not to unfairly win.

    The bike I am building didn't cost me squat! I am setting my goal to keep the bike free or to make it pay me to build it. The three wheel tandem I got on a trade. I traded my yellow tandem (Paid $100) for both my three wheel tandem and another regular tandem (that I sold for $100) so I got the 3 wheel with the engine kit for free! Most other parts were on bikes that I gave next to nothing for and probably made profit on, tires are ones I had laying around, seats were both trash finds on Schwinn electric scooters, I think the paint will cost more than the bike in this case. Might go bare metal just so I don't have to spend anything on paint. :mrgreen:

    Got my frame today by way of Illinois to California.. Started organizing parts. It'll be a put together, nothing custom. Buuuuut it is a desirable frame, and It'll be a cool color.. We'll see if anyone else uses the same frame! Cant wait.. Has RatRod posted this years rules/special interests yet???

    We haven't received any kind of approval for him so he can log on. If he doesnt get approved for the forums but the request was sent in prior to the BO start, will he still be able to participate in it?
