    Not that...I understand it costs more in a small shop than online. When I was first getting started, I needed my coaster brake serviced and took it in. Paid $20 or whatever the shop rate was. Later when I had more confidence, I opened it up for reference on another one...the bearings had never been cleaned and it was still full of old grease. Then, I needed a rim trued up, for $20 again...got it back on the bike and it was worse than it was before I took it in. I don't mean to bad mouth on here, I just wanted to clarify my statement. On the bright side, that's one of the reasons I started to do everything myself. That's when I took the leap from fixing-up bikes to building customs.

    That's cool! The only people that seem to appreciate mine are the hot rod guys and the guy at the local antique shop (which I would never expect since I usually alter them). Barely anyone in my town bikes, and not many people seem to appreciate anything without 4 wheels and an engine around here. That's what makes this site so special to me.

    Oh you mean Perverted Clown right?

    Sorry couldn't resist.

    My 40's rat isn't a B.O.Bike but I got
    "God I hope your riding that old piece of junk to the scrap yard" last time I rode it. Hoping that's a sign it won't be likely to get stolen lol.

    The best part of riding a bike for me is choosing what bike I want to ride that day. Sometimes I ride two or three in one day if I'm making a short trip to the store or local pub whatever throughout the day. So the comment I get the most is "Just how many bikes do you have anyway?!!!!"
