    Can't wait to see what you do here, i really liked your build last year, the paint was awesome! Did i read "sandblaster"..? I may have to bring a frame up with me if that is your sandblaster... Please! Don't make me sand another frame by hand! I'm begging! So...many..layers...i saw Bondo...and..fiberglass!

    Sorry, just a little post traumatic sanding disorder from the Tumbleweed build. I will be following up to see how those cream tires fit up to that 5 bar frame.

    I grew up in that area.. Spent summers in Nice/Lucerne with my grandparents. Swam many a day in the green algae covered shores! Had to finish up high school up there because I was running with the wrong crowd here in Sac.. Best decision I ever made!!

    GENESIS 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. My beginning starts with the first pic of progress, I sandblasted the frame yesterday and dug out my parts, that consist of a 36 Elgin frame, Snyder fork, Elgin Skiptooth drivetrain with aircooled hubs, long spring saddle,cream Quick Bricks,Torrington Aluminum Bars, Torrington stem, progress won't get to far until I get my wheels built, but first I have to get the spokes, not sure which light I am using (pictured by springer) or another brass light I have, I also still need a 7 post , I might steal from my Mercury frame :wink:

    The next thing I will do is work on polishing up the bars, time to dig out all of my aluminum polishing supplies.

    This is shaping up to be a vote getter! I'm jealous of those grips though, right shape and definitely right color for my MiG jet inspired build. Are they new or recycled? Can't wait for the updates.

    Actually the grips are new, I scored from another member here, of course EBAY has them for around $50.
