    Yep, the whole black and white frame section I was working on. I still have the basket though, so at least there's that I guess.

    Well, I hope you find another project to build. I was looking forward to this one.

    That sucks Troy! :mad:

    I've never understood what drives someone to think they can just take something that isn't rightfully theirs?

    That sucks! Wanted to see this one finished. I could see someone scrapping aluminum bike frames, but the price on scrap steel is so cheap is it even worth their time? I deal with recycling old bike parts all the time, barely get enough for a sixer when I drop off a full Jeep load of scrap.

    keep the rubber side down!

    You have got to be kidding me.

    Good deal you found another frame. That's a cool one too.

    Sucks they snatched your other one. They may have thought you were tossing it.

    There's a restoration bike shop in my area. They always have extra frames available. Nothing too old or sought after, just project stuff they will sell a at a decent price. This frame set me back $15.

    It is. I might have to snatch up the other one they have just like it and make a plan for a klunker build in the future.

    It looks COOL!...I still haven't figured where it's going yet...But I like where it's going (I think). I've been sitting in front of my computer, turning my head side to side, like a dog looking at a treat, trying to find the right angle of how it will sit.....Once again my wife thinks I'm nuts, I hope she doesn't start calling me Spot, or Astro or Rin Tin Tin.

    It sucks that they stole you first take, but I like the new frame better.
    Very creative idea so far, can't wait to see it progress.
    You should keep a pair of the wheels and as a wheelie bar back there. :)
