1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    I just got this bike today (actually the wife got it for me wile I was at work :D ). Bought from a friend and fellow Coaster.
    I've already got too much going on bike wise and busy at work but I thought I'd throw my hat in the ring just in case I happen to do something with it that falls within the build off time frame. Hopefully a better name and some ideas will come to me.
    Looks like everyone is off to a great start.

    Just needs tires and one grip and your done!

    Looks like an awesome starting point, I like the name too... but if your having teef problems, you can always go next door to Doc Palmer! lol

    I wouldnt mind getting in on the build off, but I got a stinky ol girls bike to build for now! oh well, maybe ill get in later since this thing isnt over till August and I got five weeks off in June to go play.

    Let me know if you need anything!

    Nice bike Randy, I'd like to see do that one before your midwest bike fest. I've got a couple I want to do before that time comes too.

    I've come to the conclusion this is a 30s Iver Johnson.
    I finally got a little time to work on it. Stripped it down and cleaned it up some. I will be leaving the paint as is.
