As far as I'm concerned, I'd say yes. I've seen part of your pile of parts; and from what I remember, there is no discernible 'bike' that was already built.
No problem PLENTY of time......
I’ll probably jump in in a bit. Between procrastination, indecision and summer jobs/projects that are running well into Fall, I’m a little behind the starting gun this time around.
I've reused parts from the past, frames included, many times before. What you CAN'T do is start assembly before 10-1-18. That said, I've always waited on subassemblies, like lacing a wheel, until the start date... so if you're comfortable with where you are then jump in bro!
I had a cool idea, but struggling with the design a little.
You ever heard crickets chirping slowed down? It’s quite beautiful…It's like crickets chirping in here.
Well, I’m in a bit of a hurry. I have to be done by the 22nd of November which is when I travel south to deliver the bike to my great-great-niece for her birthday. I’m on target to be finished sooner than that thoughReally I suppose I just miss the banter, the flow of ideas...
Rules were changed just a year or two ago, Class 1 is now for original bikes in original specifications with the exceptions of period correct accessories only.I feel confident with the rules for class 2...but, class 1 has confounded me a bit. When it was first introduced, I thought it was just a restoration class...but, it became clear that it wasn't that rigid early on. What I'm not sure on...is how loose can it be.
If you are starting with an original muscle bike, lets say sting ray...is it anything goes as long as you are using the original frame. Lets say...no banana, no apehangers, and no big and little...still a legitimate entry?
What about bikes like the bratz purple and stars frame...it was sold as a lowrider, does it qualify as a class 1 muscle bike in its lowrider form, or is it only usable to create an 'accurate reproduction of an original muscle bike'?
