    :39: what could you add to red oxide primer to get orange?
    That would give you two for the price of one.

    Rat looking primer version, followed eventually by the wild custom paint, dialed in, blossoming of the full vision when time and parts are not so improbable.:whistle:

    Yellow and red make orange I think... so would adding some yellow work? o_O

    Obviously I didn't finish. After having to switch back to the taller springer fork I just wasn't happy with the stance. I decided not to just half ... this build just to get it done by Aug. 3rd, so I am going to take some extra time and do it the way I originally planned. I'm going back to the lowrider springer but I'm going to re-build the bottom of the frame and move the bottom bracket with cranks higher so they don't hit the ground. Plus, this way I can go back to using longer 6 1/2 inch cranks instead of those short 4 1/2 ones. Congrats and good luck on everyone that finished BONINE. :banana: I'm glad I entered this year but for next year I'll do a little better on time management.:( I'll be moving this thread to the Build threads so you can still watch the completion of Agent Orange.

    Agent Orange is a boss bike regardless! Glad we hung out a little Saturday so cool to cruise some too! I know the fender mounts were the hang-up..lowered is the only way to go with those fenders, good choice brother. If I can help please let me know and I'll be there.

    I'll still be following this one! Bummed that it wasn't in the cards, but I respect that you are going the build the bike right based on your needs and not slap it together for a deadline. Best of luck my friend!! This is a killer bike!!

    Thanks, yup this bike needs to be low or it doesn't flow right.

    I will keep on following your final build of what is going to be a great concept and from work so far a killer example of lead sled meets bike.

    I will be watching out for your posts man. It's a drag you ran into the problems you did. Such a cool bike should not be rushed.

    Sorry the build didn't get done in time but you made the right choice. To me the bike is primary and the contest is secondary.


    It's a great bike, Rg

    I'd rather see this get done right, than just done. Quality shouldn't have a deadline. One of my favorite builds of the BO, whether it got done or not

    What happened to this build? I've searched the build forum, but haven't located it? This was such a good looking build.

    Thanks and sorry, I haven't touched it lately. I have to finish rebuilding the engine in my car first. Trust me, I want to see this bike finished too. I'll let people know when it's up on the build thread. Hopefully soon.
