Finish unpacking after moving from a house to an apartment.
--> Hope to find room to do bike work.
Ride often, explore the new area, and get in better shape.
Recurrent flight training.
Maybe even get a new job! :21:

I figured the voting booth is up, BO11 is officially in the bag, so I started on my Electra today. Before:

Now:

I've got a drop stem and drag bars and some new Oury grips on the way, and a springer for after I'm done w/the new paint/patina.
My inspiration for the paint job:

Oh and I've got to trim about 10 inches off the shifter cable.

WELL I'LL GET BACK TO LIFE OBJECTIVES. I CLEANED THE JAKECAVE YESTERDAY SO I'LL CONTINUE ON THE FLOORING. I JUST PURCHASED A BASS GUITAR THAT I'M GONNA STRIP THE PAINT OFF (HE'S MAD I TELL YA). GET THE STUDIO QUAKING. BUY FIGURES, MAKE DIOS AND PLEASE DON'T START ME. CHECK OUT THIS NEW APPROACH
THERE'S NO REST FOR A WRATTER... PEACE

I'm probably retiring from competitive bike building. I wasn't going to participate this year but the Elgin popped up. I need to dispose of some inventory. I'm out of room and energy. I've got stuff I can tinker with without being tied to a schedule. Gone riding...

Wow, I could've written this word for word, all of the way down to the Elgin's role in it! We should get together and ride.

Well I've already jumped into another project I've been painting my camper today. Giving a vintage vibe . I remodel the inside last year

It's a 1999 18'

Hey G, like the new 'old' paint job! Adding any Swamp Dog like patina, or is a 'fresh off the showroom floor' vintage trailer make-over? :bigsmile:
