    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.

    Locojoe...if anyone can pull off a build in a limited amount of time,I'd put my money on a member of the Coasters!Ratfink1962 (Johnson) is right!!!(Blazing Saddles reference...lol).C'mon Randy...you can do it!!!

    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.
