    I have been dreaming of building this bike for a couple of years and it just so happens that I finally got my first set of frame piece cut this week, so might as well enter the build off with the Erector.

    Here are the first set of frame sides. Yes this a long shot to get finished by Aug 7, but I'm hoping the deadline will keep me motivated. I would like to build this bike with airride, but not sure if I will have the time.

    I have a blast with the HOLY ROLLER over the past couple years so I guess it is time to build something new.

    I like the erector set vibe you're going for.
    You may want to play around with posting pics and choose "Full Image" instead of thumbnails.

    Time to weld up a swing arm and order my forks. Coming along slow because I have been in the middle of moving from Tennessee to Dayton, OH for a new job.

    I'm sorry, I can't agree with Jake.
    It's great to have you in Ohio, but Dayton...

    Kidding of course.

    Just perusing the page 2 builds....
    I had almost forgotten about your 'erector set' build! That frame is so cool.

    Bet you are settling in in Ohio. Let us know if you have time for any progress !

    All right as usual life keeps happening. After 2 yrs in Ohio I got an offer for a job back in Tennessee. I’m back in Tn and starting to play with toys again. Took a little different route on the Erector, here is the new mock up. It should be rolling next week!
