    Right now I am too drained from BO8 to commit, but that may be good timing Chips.

    Same here. I'm trying to get moved into my new house and will have a nice little work area in the garage once i do. So I'm in no real hurry to tackle another major build right now. I'm trying to finish the Pack Rats so I can go back up to Chicago this fall to ride w/ the Taildraggers and also build a campus cruiser bike for a niece that starts the university of Illinois this month.

    To steal KF's line: Mo family members, Mo betta! :mrgreen:

    If anyone is interested in a winter build-off anything goes style, I would more than likely be in! You see that would make it summer here and I wouldn't have to drive 7,000miles just to be warm enough to build...

    8)

    This was my first build off and I am SUPER glad that I decided to join in the fun. :D

    It was a perfect timing thing too ( I had 2 HOMERUN big profit sales on ebay so it freed up some good bike bucks to buy the parts needed to build Gumby Rumpus )

    I hope that I can join in the fun next year too!
    I've always got a few build ideas rattling around in my melon

    Fingers crossed for next year!

    I'm interested too. That's our winter but a great time to be outside in Florida. The summer, not so much (especially with rain delays). December-February would be nice and I could be ready for my anything goes build by then.

    Just started a "Winter build-off thread" so as not to clutter this thread, it can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=75799

    Bring on the mini build-off!

    Luke.
     
  13. As said before I don't know IF I'll have time to do a build next year but IF I do and IF I get a welder I have an idea...

    Here's a hint...

    Think Im going to do my original idea I had for this year. Better get to looking for a tanker to build before the city boys come in and buy up all the old bikes around my area.

    This has probably been discussed before and am also throwing fuel on the fire perhaps,
    what are people's thoughts on a bit more time, say another month longer, so I can finish?
