Nothing like breathing life into something that looked terminal.

And making it your project as well.

Glad to see that grin on the test ride.

Keep on enjoying life like that.

Great job for a first bike. Guaranteed heaps better than I could have every achieved. :lol: :lol:

Re: Velo Jardin-New Photos...FIRST TEST RIDE!!!!!

Ok well I mounted the lights today....I switched to Cat Eyes which have a personal history. They are the lights we used when we toured a summer on Mountain Bikes in Oregon back in the way back! We were the ones with a trailer and carrying lots of gear. We helped a lot 10 speeders that year with repairs and food. We would camp in an area and ride the trails for a couple of days before moving on!

Re: Velo Jardin-New Photos...Approaching the FINISH!

Hi guys...
Just wanted to check in.

I am doing the finishing touches on VJ (pictures soon).

Work is been a distraction as we transition to a much nicer Cloud system.

Troy has been fighting fires.

I will get a video of him and one of his slides. (I would try it but ...well....maybe I will :lol: ) The family that eats dust together...????

Loves rust together!
So very very very true. Troy is headed to the shop to finish up the rustiest build award. He has a hour before he heads back out to the fires!

Re: Velo Jardin-New Photos...Headed to the Finish!

You now have a set of glow in the dark OURY grips headed your way.
I took these off of some parts bike a year or so ago and I discovered they were glow in the dark the same way Jats did. I turned out the lights in my shop and noticed something glowing in a clear container up on the shelf.
