    Re: SSV#6 Do Work!

    I'll bet it's harder to make a paint job look 'bad', than it is to do a good job! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    This bike, like ALL of your bikes, is simply awesome. I really like the way your mind works when designing them.

    Keep it up and see you on the 'finished' page!

    Cheers,
    Dr. T

    Re: SSV#6 haste made waste

    sounds like when i welded the tank support in on the galt town hooligan AFTER i had pinstriped the top tube and cooked it so i had to do it all over. it happens, sometimes when i am building in the back of my mind i know i am one step from disaster

    Re: SSV#6 Presenting "The Bully"

    a word of warning on the rubber spacers you replaced. they equalize the pressure of the pads to both sides of the caliper. if you eliminate that give the caliper is only being pushed from one side. resulting in poor performance and more pressure having to be applied on the hand lever for it to brake properly. I am just saying this because i have run into that same problem. i used some rubber hose to duplicate the rubber spacers and it works great. Great job on your bike!

    Sorry to hear about the elbow. Maybe it will heal up good on it's own because therapy is a son-of-a-gun! (I know, my wife is a Physical Therapist)

    The pictures would've been great, but your creation stands strong on it's own.

    Just read this to my wife (a licensed and practicing physical therapist) and her response was: "Ohhhh... eeeee, that's bad." So that's a professional's analysis.

    Get better.
