    Can you put up a prize thread? I'd like to contribute to that early on and see if we can't get it pumpin' this time around.

    My problem is I always want to start something new, even though I never seem to complete what Im already working on. I have an idea that will have everyone's eyes popping, but without someone to weld a frame extension for me (cause no one has time to do it apparently) I'm dead in the water with what I ALREADY have waiting to be completed.

    Yes I think it's US Central Time, but I've been naughty and started my build thread early.

    You see, I'm in New Zealand and it's been the 1st of January for 16 and a half hours already. I saw the new WBO 2017 forum was up and just went and started my thread without thinking or checking the countdown clock...

    https://countingdownto.com/countdown/rrb-wbo-2017-start-01-january-2017-countdown-clock

    I know I've been naughty and I apologise profusely.

    :whistle:

    Glen.

    Never actually weighed it, but I did weigh the wheels and frame as I went and pretty sure the total would be around the 150lbs mark.
    Heavy bike, but 7 speeds and low gearing meant riding up hills was easier than expected.

    We have had some monster storms the last week or so down here, but I doubt they will get to you, they were heading more towards Tassie.

    Looking forward to seeing your builds Pirate!

    I'm going to suggest/ask we do this type of build off again
    down the track. Seems many have incomplete or started but
    not finished builds "can we go Dad can we please, I'll be good
    I promise!"

    Thanks, PP..........

    You guys make me crazy! With all this great builds going on, my fingers start itching to get to building too.... But there's no time and money left for a build right now..... :(

    VistatopProfile.jpg VistaMACRO.jpg Think I'll go 'build up' instead of build off this time. Last two I did were a lot of cutting, welding, smoothing..etc, and although tons O' fun...took too much of my time from other things.

    BUT, having said that..I am going to rehab an old-er 3 spd, touring bike...Vista..that is a rusted relic that I "started
    cleaning up well over a year ago, then discarded, and banished it to the back of Old Shed #2
    Hopefully, it will not only restore this grand old bike to most of it's former glory on a dime and a ton of elbow grease and raw fingers, , but perhaps someone will benefit from what I've learned about cleaning up...rehabbing...refurbishing, if you will...it is NOT a high dollar restoration, there's other sites for that, this is for do it yourselfers and reg'lar guys...lol...I don't have money for high ticket stuff like chroming, and ordering top of the line spokes..If I can't grab a part off of an older donor laying around, then I'll make it..... But I research cleaning products as much as I do bike stuff...well, not really...but almost. :happy:

    Still, it will be a lot of work...4 layers of house-paint to remove, a Sturmey Archer 3spd rear that I have no clue if it needs rebuilding or not.Stripping , repainting, bearings? I think these fell out in a rusted fast cage when I cracked upen the bottom a year ago.....had to cut off chain and one tire...you know the drill...

    I love seeing an old lawn ornament morph into a usable , ridable, and perhaps even a very lovely bicycle.

    Yes, I like to think we're the kind of all inclusive site that wouldn't discriminate against our interstellar brethren and would welcome them to the contest with the understanding that they don't eat or take over the bodies of any of the earth population while here. Should be some interesting ideas!
