Thanks!! Yeah, I've been watching this one on Ebay, but it's a bit pricey and it feels like it needs to go on a military themed restoration which is probably not the bike I'd be building.I'm loving the radio very cool tools you have access to and knowledge to run!!!...
I seen a radio CB alarm Cambo recently....
Man, we gotta see that costume!Last time we spoke, I was having a sissy bar dilemma. Well, in an interesting turn of events, I won $5000 for best costume at a Halloween party and decided that was enough of a reason to splurge on the expensive nice shiny new sissy bar from the UK. I just hope it gets here in time.

The radio is excellent. Had a transistor on my bars back in the day, too. Whenever I hear "My Love" by the Wings I remember riding one summer evening looking at the stars and being free. Great memory. Great build.Sweet radio and mount! That's cool. I We used to rubber band them to our bars in the '60s. And your vintage bluetooth speaker idea is def an idea that would sell! I use my Bose Soundlink Mini inside an old tabletop radio housing in The BACK40. Sounds especially cool with jazz pouring forth....

Over the last 7 years I have been making halloween costumes. It's as time consuming as building a bike and just as much fun. I've managed to win quite a few prizes and a lot of cash. Now, I'm just re-using old costumes for new contests and spending more time building bikes.Man, we gotta see that costume!
I hope that you're right, because I'm slowly building an inventory of parts to make and sell some radios. The hard part will be letting them go. I just have to make more than the number of bikes I own, which could take me some time. I have a lot of bikes. And..the three little parts for the first radio mount I made took two and half hours to print. Technically you can click print and come back and everything should be okay, but if you're not around when the plastic curls up around the nozzle or stops feeding your print is quickly ruined. I printed a 5 hour part once, only to have it fail in the last half hour. Bike building and 3d printing teach you patience.Sweet radio and mount! That's cool.

I also LOVE Halloween. I have so many ideas for costumes and not enough time to build them all. Starting to have the same problem with bikes. I'll just keep building though. Perhaps a Halloween costume that incorporates a bike is in my future.Very cool costumes. We LOVE Halloween. My wife and I have won a few contests as well, but that was a while ago. Before digital cameras.
I work for a company that builds large 3D printers...one of the printers being developed uses powdered metal. It essentially prints in stainless steel ...I've seen some of the samples, and it is pretty cool.I saw a video today of a 3D printer that prints in steel, (Basically it is a computer controlled combined mig welder and small end mill) can you imagine the parts we could come up with?
