    So here it is. This was my first go at a Build Off, and I have to say it was a lot of fun! Not only putting together my bike, but seeing the others do theirs. We're always amazed at the talent shown by the members! I'm glad I took part in this Build Off, and hope to do it again! blah, blah, blah... Ok.... Here's my entry. A 1977 Schwinn Pixie II aka "On A WIMH" Remember kids... Wear your helmet! :)

    That is the coolest 16" (?) build I've seen. I too would like to see a kid rollin' down the trail on this bike with that helmet on!

    Thanks for the compliments, everyone. It was great fun to join the Build Off.
