I'll fill in the blanks more later today, but here is my rough plan.

This year I plan to build out my 1937 Hawthorne AirFlow (Monark Silver King FloCycle) that I got from @Jarod24
When I originally got this frame I was thinking I might do something inspired by James Dean's Porsche Spyder Lil B.
But after I was lucky enough to by @highwheelerboy25 's Finn Special Schwinn and it's Mooneyes discs, I knew I wanted to use those discs on my FloCycle and try to build a Bonneville Salt Flats inspired bike.

SaltHammer will be the build name.

Salt flat racers, WW2 fighter planes, and wood speed boats are some of my favorite inspirations. This should be awesome!

DAY ONE ON THIS BUILD-
Thanks for the comments everyone. Just turned the first wrench. Simple task of putting wheels on, but first time I've seen the discs on the Flo to set the tone for the build
