    Man ,its been crazy trying to work on bikes in my driveway, I literally get stopped every 15 minutes from working with people asking about bikes for sale, I also had a guy drop off five bikes for free, and five kids asked about fixing they're bikes. So I will have to go out and do the build off in the wee hours all stealth like :roll: so if all my pictures come out dark , you'll know why.

    I'm not the one who's so scared that they have to go looking for the "right frame" I'm just using the "right now" frame knowing that it's not cool enough to win this thing... until I'm through with it.

    Oh Noes!

    Funny you mention that....I was just thinking last night that I want to do a build with my "pup" in mind. My 90 pound clown "pup".... :wink: I want to use his colors and build it to represent the breed.

    I am guessing that this is the first post on RRB from the country of Myanmar (Burma).
    Very slow connection, so I can't upload anything.
    Saw a cool bike they call a Tri-Shaw that is like a side car rickshaw (with no canopy). I took some pretty good photos of one that the owner was painting with black laquer paint. I gave him the equivalent of $1.00 (which could have paid for a full hour of him driving my fat butt around).

    Schwinnray and Xcruiser just got more votes than me based on the bikes they chose, which are SWEET!

    I just went out to the shop and while I was waiting for paint to dry on my bike rack I pulled the loose crank arm off my '56 JC Higgins... the spindle is egged out, so I have to replace it... AHHH!!!!

    Everyone should know by now and maybe has seen already, but one of these WCC choppers is my build off bike.
