    Welcome! There is nothing cooler to see than a little guy cruising an old school, fixed up bike with a cool factor. This one will be fun!

    Is that a 20" ?

    usually you see those in 16" , but I have a much-rattier-than-yours out in the pile, so watching this build with interest.

    Re: The Throwback

    Thank you. This being my 1st build off and having never taken apart a bike before I am pretty impressed with what I've accomplished so far. My husband was right though, it is addicting. I'm already thinking about next years build off.

    Re: The Throwback

    At least I'm not the only one. :lol: I spent the morning thinking about how I could incorporate the other bike I have into this one and then it hit me...I have a bike for next years build off!!!

    The build looks great so far by the way. :wink:
