BEFORE YOU START POSTING - Tell us a little about yourself.
"Allow myself to introduce...myself"
I'm back after a month plus layoff due to our move from Fort Worth to Dallas...
Now...how do I build bikes, again?
1.Tear it apart and dont loose the bearings 2.Reverse order of step one....oil the chain. See just like a Chiltons
What would Jesus ride???
pictures coming soon....update on this, my first build:
first off, it's tough building a bike on a 3'x5' apartment patio without a complete tool set or vise or stand. haha...
Bike is ready for logo to be added and then clear coated.
wheels are primed for paint.
fixed the hub assembly, crankset and bottom bracket
to do: try to get the handlebars, stem, chain ring and cranks polished to a decent patina; need a good saddle, but can't afford a used Brooks, but need something; clean up the seatpost on the grinder wheel at work, then paint; prime and paint the sweet rear rack I got on here froma fellow rat rodder; purchase a new wicker basket for my lady, as this is a wedding present for her; get some rad grips and get this baby together and rolling!
I never posted a before shot, so here's some so-so ones with my bride-to-be, shortly before we met....
I went MIA. Left some rubble with inquiries and such at the time (I am very sorry dudes, you know who ya are). No excuses, just that life has just been a bit bigger than bikes. Still a hack newbie with only unfinished projects (well, one partial rebuild/rattlecan job done), but now I have a proper garage and a soon to be acquired fleet of bikes (I have four free bikes coming my way over the next month)! So, things are looking up. I'm back... so, nice re-meet everyone, I am Bo - a son, husband, minister, traveler, student, bicycle/tattoo/coffee enthusiast, cook, music/literature/art lover and all around geeky grown up kid at heart from Texas.
it's all about the bikes, man. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50053
I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
