    ....and SOLD! The frame set just went to a new home and the wheel set remains in my wheel depository. The nice gentleman also left this solid Brass ship light as part of our agreement. I wish I was into American bikes 20 years ago when I drove long haul from Toronto to South Texas every week...

    I couldn’t just leave the frame laying around so it’s now sporting the 7 speed set from the Colson. I’ve had that wheel set a very long time and used it on my Build Off bike years ago. I’ve long considered mating a nice old rim set with those hubs.

    I’m in Canada Wizzletooth,so we likely don’t want to go there because of shipping costs and it’s a loooong way to Tucson! But...there are items I’d liberally trade for if one was so inclined. It’s posted locally as shown for @$250 Cdn. ($187US). Is that reasonable?

    Yes the Felt is Aluminum with very nice welds. I thought I’d try the wheel set out on the Colson first. I think I’d have fitment issues with the springer on my Colorflow fork. Maybe later though... .

    I just decided to try a little clean up on the frame and what was hidden under the spray bomb is in very good condition. I’m still keeping the rims & rubbers and think this frame will now find a new home much easier.

    Apparently the paint and decal graphics are really nice under that coat of darkness. I bought the bike yesterday primarily for the killer wheels and tires. Do you have any tips in overspray removal from tires? I don’t think I’ll invest any time on the frame paint, but if you know of a quick...

    I spotted the post yesterday as I checked out a few random threads from the archives. 'Show Me Your ...20" bikes with 26" forks' thread.

    Once again it started with a cool frame and fork comb-o-nation and rolls to a finish with the lock-in down the 'Nanner and loading up the springs! I also noted consistent drivetrain installations in the time I've had the pleasure to follow your builds. Congratulations and Thank you.

    BO15 ZEN ( I THINK I'M FINISHED )

    Hey Brett, You Lucky guy finding a Zephyr frame in the first place and then building such a clean classy ride. “I’d Ride That” I’ve been hoping to stumble upon a headlight speedo combo one day and that one is sweeeet, and that saddle of yours...Nice. Oh...the Magna tear drop peddles from your...

    That's a very 'Full' Monty front end design that you dared to pull off. I hope you'll enjoy comfortably riding Full Monty everywhere you go.

    I've long considered and often imagined a Gene Winfield type of fade job on a bike by rattle can, so look forward to learning from any of your possible challenges and techniques. ....whenever you're ready

    BO15 RaTs GaSs...Great year all!...pg 26

    Hidey Ho Oddjob, we're wondering if you scratched any ideas off your 'Bucket' list? Oh and by the way neighbour, did you happen to know that the earliest use of the helmet was about 900BC by the Assyrian soldiers? The helmets were fashioned from leather and bronze.....

    Headers Yes. Functional Yes!? with a 'canned' audio system and your favorite soundtrack perhaps? Some nice sounds in there with times announced that you could put on panel... Maybe you could keep that sound idea under your hat too. Hah, just noticed that these are by Backstreet Buckets. I...

    I'm sorry Grant, this one is taken. Your post sparked me to finally get it back on the road. I've had the frame for 4 or 5 years and puttered to the point of taking it for a shake down run. It looks real promising.

    I was briefly shocked with that very same impression when I read it. The slick satin banana skin mock up took a lot of Nirve and looks like just a perfect plan for that pan. Lookin' Guuuuud!

    BO15 Milky way (working title)

    I'd say it's time to kick open the stall and choose a favorite rendition of the song Milk Cow Blues to keep your build ideas churning. Your moock up pics don't look like a bike to me and you'll have a field day in the build off. Giddy Up!
