BO15 The Layoff Special

Welp, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, if I got laid off I’d probably enter build off. So here it goes.

I bought this Husky industrial frame here ten-ish years ago. The Felt 24x3 and Thick Brick, same story. The 26x1-3/8 front wheel is from a parted out Royce Union three speed. NOS SR stem, NOS Wald pedals. Fork is from a Vista tandem.

Oh ya, and I have a line on Thompson Grips ;-)

This will not be much more than a paint and assemble build. I might add a custom touch or two if motivation strikes (but right now it’s pretty low).

Here we go.

Sorry to hear about the lay-off, Ian. Hopefully the build will be a little positive reinforcement therapy!

Took some of my old builds out for a neighborhood ride today to get in the mood for this build.

Sick Sick Sick and Sick!!! Great builds and so cool to see so many RRB memories together like that.
I remember now you you had cut your rack for the fender to pop out of. I'm doing something similar this year.

Dude! I forgot how cool your old builds were!

Like others have said, so sorry about the layoff, hopefully this build will keep you distracted and occupied.

Build on brother!

Still nothing to see here, so I took another old build off a hook to ride. I think I built this in 2015. Only 64.5 miles.





Hope everybody is well.
