    It was so fun to see this bike in person. Highlight of my day was riding Snot Rocket around. Thanks again, for trusting me with it. :wink:

    TRUST you?.........You let me ride your "Airstream" bike which is 10x the bike!..Still can't figure how ya got such a FAT tire in the back of it... Uh, that back tire is worth more than my whole bike, I have a total investment of $30 in SNOT ROCKET, there's no comparison between the two bikes!

    A little up date. Changed the sprocket and cranks to a 48T, BIG improvement. Added a Bell bag. I've been using this bike a lot more then I thought I would. Was a handful in the beginning (negative trail), not after getting used to it. Now it's one of my favorites.

    dig those forks way more than the cheap looking lowrider forks you see all over, KILLER job. and the fork brace looks simple but I really dig it, K.I.S.S.(keep it simple stupid) that's my motto, you killed it. simple but siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick!! :mrgreen:

    Sold it at the Muscle Bike Museum swap meet. Never thought I'd sell it. I think the guy was more interested in the seat then the whole bike. Anyway, because of the negative trail on the bike, I sold it as a "work of art" :roll:, not a rideable bike. This was a very simple bike, but it always generated attention. I kinda miss it.....I've got others to takes it's place. :D

    Maybe the guy who bought it wants to restore it, looks like the frame and rack are either Murray or Higgins. There is nice potential there for a resto project!

    If he does, I'll have to buy it back, and "restore" it back the way it is! :lol:
