    Well, I guess you could call that literally over-the-top, though perhaps less so then wearing a shark fin... :mrgreen:

    Or wearing a foam beer can suit! It's goofy, but fun and there is money/prizes involved. Two years ago, I won $200 with BEER RUN which I used to buy a set of Fat Franks and a 5 speed StingRay (which I sold for $200). Last year I came in 3rd and won $50 and bought some lights and stuff.

    That's cool though, I'd definitely do something like that if such a thing happened around here...

    These googles are too cool to give up! They are perfect for me because they are made to go over regular glasses.

    Radio conversion is cool. You do a "how to"?

    Actually Dbubbleguy is the one that modified the radio before he gave it to me. I just changed up where the mp3 player was located and created my own mounting brackets. I think I am also going to try to wire in an on/off micro switch to the internal amplified speaker battery. So far all of the mods have been done without drilling any holes in the case.

    Check out the Bike Radio thread that he started.

    Trading Firewing with Tpender for his 1936 Silver King. It's gonna be a tight fit, but I think I can get her in the box with the forks, front wheel, pedals, and bars removed. I'll definitely remove the taillight glass and will probably need to remove the flying 8 ball fender ornament. The rear end of this bike has so many layers, I didn't even want to think about disassembly. I box up the front assembly and bars in another box. Wish me luck.
