MY INTRO/BIKES ... WHEEL WE EVER BE SATISFIED?
Don't make me get out my pink gun!
Pretty much sums it up in my eyes.
MAKING MESSES SINCE 1970
HiaWhatThe? RRB #7 build
There's one build that kinda bothered me at first but it wasn't because of frame mods, it was because I "felt" like I had seen the finished bike before. I couldn't remember where and I can't prove it, so I'm not going to let that ruin what I enjoy, which is building bikes.
The way I see it the rules are for me. It's a challenge for me. I will not cheat to win. If I lose to someone who cheated, it has no effect on me.
I struggled with the rear springer I'm doing, If I wanted to use the design that I felt flowed best, it was (and is ) going to be non-functional. Why? Because to do it right I will have to cut the frame. I will do it eventually, but not for the build-off. NO big deal, gives me something to do later...
Sorry for the run-on, Have fun and build something! Rg
There was one bike that was submitted that Steve put an end to as it already was a built bike, that happened in the first week. If there is one that is still going, let me know through PM and I'll do some snoopin!
Not me... watch this!
Hey RaggedJim, I just talked to a painter who said he painted your chainguard for you and you paid him, he also knows the guy who's been doing some welding on your frame and he said it use to be a girl's frame before the frame modifications! You're outta here!
See, I have no problem falsely accusing people.
I see that there are a few guys that are painting their bikes already even though they still have some fab and other work to do. I can't imagine doing that because I know I would bang and nick and screw up the paint as I was fitting stuff to the bike.
If anyone saw my Fugsley build, paint was the absolute last thing (except grips yg ). I just want to make sure that I am finished with all of the fitting of the complete bike and then I plan to break down the bike and start painting.
What are your thoughts on this?

To quote a great man "It's like wiping before you poop..."
Hi! I know this guy quite well - we ride together in the Circle City Cruisers. He is not very active on this site as he's usually out doing his thing which is painting pretty stuff on cars, motorcycles, helmets, etc (pulls lines). His intentions of joining the buildoff had nothing to do with deception, he was totally unfamiliar with what we are doing here and had never read the rules. I was unaware he was even going to join in - he had never mentioned it. I just wanted to clear up what might have been a misperception. To the best of my knowledge no one has deliberately cheated in this buildoff so far and if all goes well it will stay nice clean fun. Thanks for hearing me out. Robert
Thanks Robert, I saw his and I think he handled it well. The build I was talking about wasn't his. Tell Steve to get a new bike and jump in! It ain't too late! Rg
