Hey all, my name is Mark Montez. I'm married with 2 daughters, 10 and 11. I'm from Indiana and I play guitar in a Heavy Rock band. I've ALWAYS been into bikes but moreso here of late. I love to ride and LOVE to build. I have approx. 35 bikes of various types. When my wife and I met she was living in her Grandparents house and in the shed outback was her Grandfathers 1969 Schwinn Panther slowly rotting away. I moved it with us to our new house and slowly (at first) began to entertain the idea of rebuilding, NOT restoring it.

and came up with this...I love this bike!!!! And its been a giant snowball rollin downhill ever since!!! I really dig this site and all involved with it.I have learned ALOT from you guys and I thank you all!![/img]

I got excited when I saw this post, I thought Mark was posting again as he did several times a day everyday. Any news from Mark since his last postings about his unfortunate bike sale

Sorry to hear about your dad. Divorce sucks too, been there done that.
Hope everything gets better for you soon.
Stay up man and if you need it, we were all ready too pitch in
and start a fund for storage if need be so you could keep all your
awesome bikes and parts. Just say the word I'm sure you will find
lots of help where you least expect it.

Life is tough when we loose someone close to heart. Divorce is also tough but I've been there twice. The first one is hard but the next one not so much :p

Most people say that you have play the hand you were dealt. I say that's bull. It's your game and you can change your hand how many times you choose.

A new friend with a big garage is what you need so you can have room to work on your bikes!

Hey Mark, didn't even see this post. Sorry about the loss of your father. Hope you get back on your feet.
I'm praying for you,
Nick
