    I think Steve gave Luke the ok to host the competition with each of us getting a thread in our own forum. Just like the Big Build Off.

    I would still be at work during those hours (graveyard shift) anyway so I would be starting at the same time as everybody else. ;)

    Finally locked down my plans just an hour ago!
    Bought and picked up rims and tires, so I better use them or my wife will kill me! :whistle:

    26/16 Off-Road MuscleBike! Quite probably a girls bike at that! :13:

    Probably going to have a go at a skateboard based banana seat for the first time too, I would buy an Ichi, but they don't freight to Australia, and if they did it would probably cost too much... :cry:

    Anyone else going to have a go at building their own banana seat?

    Luke.

    That's what I'm planning to do for the banana seat for my 59. All the ones I'm finding are too small to fit how I want

    Not really its going to take a bit of work as I no longer own any saws plus I am having issues finding a deck to use without spending too much on something I may mess up cutting.
    I miss the days when I could find skate boards for free all the time.

    I'm recovering a 2 pan banana, and may try to fab a cafe style rear shroud...

    I just bought one of my childhood bikes. Sears Spyder 500 10 speed. It is thrashed but I should be able to salvage most of it. So I am in. I will probably be going resto mod. Mostly stock but maybe build a cool fork for it.

    Dude my bike as a youth too! Does it have the butterfly handlebars? I know there were a few versions of the Spyder 500. I had the yellow into blue fade too.
    Show a pic! Show a pic!

    Carl.

    Does it look like this one?

    Just wanted to clarify the time zone used in these build-off's is the same as used for the main build-off each year.

    CST USA Time. = UTC - 6 hours.

    So you can start building for the MBBO at 12:01 am Monday the 1st of September CST time, and final pics must be up by 11:59 pm on the 1st of January 2015 CST.

    If you do not live in the region of CST timing, use the "UTC-6 hours" to work out what the times will be where you are.

    Alternatively, just click this link, and it will tell you the current time and date in CST:

    CDT is central daylight time, same region as CST but daylight savings in effect...
