    I have an OCC drift trike I am puting parts together for, but realize I will never finish it in time. :shake:

    So I'm gonna do yet another strandie to go bar hopping on cause I feel like I still haven't found the perfect size for me after the last 2..

    84' 17" Miyata with a 21" top tube. and some 86' Akisu forks that should be here by the weekend.

    one suggestion...
    a laid back/bent seat post, turns anything into a cruiser, and you then have adjustment in two directions

    Home alone tonight, so I figure I'll get all bent and do a little bit of eveything in the inventory. :crazy:
    Might clean the wheels later if I'm still standin.
    Making my favorite coonass chicken too since I'm the only one that loves it! I'm starting to realize I need another project for the next couple weeks while the frame and fork are getting thier art on..

    I got a peek at it this afternoon when i dropped off the forks. She was freaking out cause the marker's were getting primer dust on them and she thought it was the paint coming off.. :bigsmile:.

    From seeing just the head tube that she's done, it's gonna be sweett!!

    MY Sharpie girl got the flue right after she started, but I did get a shot of the head badge when I went over to visit. The Miyata cyclops.. I love it!! :inlove:

    Hopefully she will feel better soon....

    Thanx guys, I am stoked!! The Miyata made tubing is so nice... I cant wait to take it off some sweet jumps!
    When I said "your half done!" she replied, "no, like 20%". I can't wait to see it when she's finished. It will definitely be one of a kind! :inlove:

    You may need to remind her that there is a deadline!
