    (mbbo#4 class 1) "BIG RED"

    Poor poor Husker fan. Why hire a mediocre Pac12 coach to replace a good Big 10 coach? Edit: Why not hire Scott Frost and get the right guy there?

    (MBBO #4 Class 1) "Shelby Flyer Woody"..Holiday Greetings from 10

    I wonder how well the wood would stay on the metal in the weather? I was thinking about replacing the stickers on a Wagoneer with wood.

    The black stand in the back ground is the start of my frame jig. Legs from a large format printer I got off the free section on craigslist and some extruded aluminium from the junk yard.

    I just did it. It is just tacked. I wanted to see if I liked the length, I don't. I think it is about two inches too long.

    (MBBO 4 Class 2)- Vance

    I started to build a bike out of a Mongoose Motomag frame but with forks and a larger front wheel it looked too out of wack. Like many of the home built chopper bikes from the 70s the Pedals were way too high because of the fork rake. It would have been a pedal up hill and hold on proposition. I...

    Original Allstate Cheater Slick (Baltimore)

    I wouldn't call it gauging. I bet you could get $100 here and make 50 for your trouble. (other $25 is gas and packing stuff)

    Hyper-Formance StingRay repaint kits

    i have used the can with hardener in it. It works very well, you smash a button on the bottom to release the hardener. You can get it at any auto paint store for around $20 in any color you want. The can is the expensive part. Pot life was better than I expected. I used the clear over...

    MBBO #04! Voting time!

    I have a 78 Mongoose Motomag frame. Someone decided it needed a kick stand so they welded a bracket on. I am not destroying a national treasure to get that out of the way. I am thinking of revisiting early bmx but in reverse. Lots of converted stingrays and Huffys when I was a kid. The...

    I name this Spaceliner "Dorothy"

    I used the glitter paint from Wally world and had the same issue, I found that sanding between coats of clear worked pretty well. I used auto clear results were not great but not bad either
