Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Six pages already! Looking forward to seeing them on a big screen.

MO FIRE MO WING .. just build a cool bike and have fun
Great, tell me if it starts to look like a re-run.
Head start... haha, aren't you kind. I've actually been able to do very little since every time I go out to the shop I start working on a different bike.
Today is my day off and it's really overcast outside, might rain.
The sky is clear and it's sunny out right now. I managed to get my friend's wife's Huffy cleaned up and out of the shop. Also working on taking the spare parts from the Hyperco Spinner bike and putting them onto a Haro frame, so build-off work being done... very little.
I did however realize that some things I need are under this pile in the shop:
Man, I knew my junk pile was getting out of hand, but now I have to face it... as soon as I get this 2 year old down for her nap.
I really need to clean it up... Ugh.
I've been outside taking apart BMX bikes and I did pull this for G.I.JESSE JAMES, I'm using the chainring and crank since the one on the chopper is chrome, and military vehicles don't need no chrome!
Was interrupted by my neighbor, he came by to tell me that his brother (an older mentally challenged man) had his Schwinn trike stolen! Everybody knows that that trike is his only source of transportation! I really hope they find whoever took it, it's not like there's a lot of trike on the road in town... just his.
Sorry ,little late on posting this But I had an idea for your bathroom, hook up your toilet paper roll to a free wheel hub so you have clicking when in use
What would Jesus ride???
Yeah, it was actually Monday that I swapped the mover for a '98 Dyno Compe, he could've ridden it, but since they are made for flat factory/warehouse floors it isn't good on roads.
Anyway, he came over to the house and said he had his old bike in the shed, he brought it over and it was a mess, but very fixable. Adjusted BB bearings, trued rear wheel best I could, it had one broken spoke and I had nothing to fix it, adjusted coaster wheel bearings, took a couple links out of the chain, tightened chain guard and fenders, put on new grips, aired up the tires, adjusted headset bearings, adjusted the seat, cleaned and polished the frame and fenders.
He's kind of a "fixture" in the community, 65 years old, they let him "manage" the football team at the high school for years and years. He rode this bike until he got a scooter a few years back, the police made him stop riding the scooter because he was just generally driving poorly and they wanted to keep him safe, so about a year ago or less they parked the scooter and bought him a Schwinn Meridian trike. Man I hope they catch whoever stole it, but until then, he rode this bike away just fine! That's him behind the bike.
So there went all my build-off work time for the day... I'm not upset about it.
That is an awesome idea, and then when someone accidentally pulls off too much they can't spool it back on!
Interesting build.Love military bikes and enjoy your other builds.I'm hoping to get ideas for a sidecar build I've been thinking about for a while.I 've been enjoying the humor you've been spreading around this forum as well

Thanks, I'm glad someone gets it. haha
I'm not much for karma, but I believe that what goes around comes around.
When I finished his bike I thought he would just walk it back to his house but he got on it and rode up and down the street, I know he hadn't ridden it in at least a couple years, but you know what they say about riding a bike...
