    My buddy Scott, Tailhole, has been encouraging me to join the build off. It sounds like a lot of fun so I'm signing up with my 1955 Schwinn Flying Star.

    The bike has some great patina and a Bendix Multi-Speed, which is a two speed...not a kickback. Plus, I recently learned that we share the same birthday - March 15. Thus, "Ides of March" seems like a great fit for this project.

    If all goes well, I'll use the axle and wheels (picture shown below) to build a trailer. Look forward to the fun times and please provide feedback/suggestions. Thanks, John
