    Still waiting for the big bike shop to finish inventory, it's been a couple weeks already. So, cooking more food! This is Ampalaya (bittermelon) with beef, it's supposed to lower blood pressure. DSCI0263.JPG

    Thanks. They still need a coat of poly, and a bit of trim on the floor. But I'm happy and the homeowners love them. Not too shabby for an old rough framer. (my design too) Credit to my son for the finish.

    This is true! I once had the clerk at DMV fall asleep while I was standing in front of them. She was ticked off when I woke her up.

    Take one of my other bikes for a ride instead! :) Actually this has changed the direction of my build, because I realised I need something I can carry picnic food while riding with my girl, so my build off bike is now going to have a rack, which in turn has changed the build style to suite :rofl:

    That rack suits your bike well too!

    Actually taking up bike building for times I can't work on cars. My car shop is 2 hours away.

    Trying to perfect my thin crust pizza recipe as well, no downside to trying new pizza.

    I like the Tele on the far left; Hot Rails in the neck position?

    old Gibson minibucker in the neck, there's a Jaguar switch plate controlling the pickups off/on and a phase switch, the tele plate controls v&t and tone options like the old Esquire scheme, and then there's a vintage tele in the bridge.
