    Yea, it's all very unfortunate. Out of the top 5 Seattle bands, only one still has the original front man.(Pearl Jam)

    Not a huge fan of SG, but saddened as I am when I hear of anyone passing. I did get the opportunity to see them live down at the VooDoo Fest in New Orleans one year. Good show!

    keep the rubber side down!

    Thanks.
    I should be getting an update on the wheel plates soon. It's a simple design, but my metal guy gets busy and he knows I'm in no hurry. Might be a few days, might be another week.

    Quick update.
    Metal guy should have my wheel plates done by next weekend, then I can build my wheels and start on the fun stuff. Chop, cut, rebuild.

    Well, OK. So maybe it's not fun anymore. But it'll be interesting to me to see if I can mount the wheels to the frame.

    Don't count me out yet.

    Wheel plates are in, just have to drill a few holes and build them.

    Then I figure out how to fit them to the frame.[​IMG]

    So, just for my sake, these are steel plates welded to your rims you had welded together? And, what is the function of them? As you can see, I'm a bit lost on the design here.

    The rear three rims are welded together.
    The plates won't be welded to anything. They'll be bolted together to sandwich the rims.
    Rollers will be held on by the bolts, which the rims will roll on.
    The plates will be stationary.

    I'll get you a video to explain.

    Should be cool but seems like a lot of work and mechanism for a center hole.

    There's nothing about this build that's worth the time, money, or effort it takes. But it's been in my head a long time, so I figured what the heck.

    It won't be a daily rider, probably won't even be a show queen. Most likely will end up as yard art, but what a nifty piece of yard art.

    Thanks for the Chris tribute he was a great one for sure . Don't forget about another band he stared Temple of the Dog . I was a commercial fisherman in Alaska when that came out it definitely helped me get through 20+ hour work days .

    Temple was a great tribute from the remaining mother love bone guys to their fallen front man, it even brought us Pearl jam.
    So much great rock music in the 90's, to many lost voices.

    Thanks.
    As soon as time allows, I'll get them done.

    This is the first time in 5 years I haven't gotten laid off in June, in fact I'm working more hours now. Plus the honey do list keeping me busy.

    It's to bad my videos don't match that statement.

    I haven't been in my garage since I got the wheel plates, and I'm in no rush to finish.

    So I'm withdrawing from the build off.
    Not to say I won't finish this bike, it just won't be anytime soon.
    So if I can get a moderator to move this to the build thread, that would be great.

    There are to many things I want to do with this bike, and there simply isn't time in this build off or my life to accomplish them in a few months.
    Gotta love when life throws a curve ball.

    There's always a reminder that there's no fate. The future's not set, there's no fate but what we make for ourselves...
