    Ro11fast or Go Home

    Thanks! Me too! I was so nervous making decisions this whole build off but I actually love how it turned out. I learned SO much cool stuff too! I've never been the kind of girl to shy away at getting my hands dirty but I also have never built something like this before. Love learning new things.

    Thanks!! I had a blast and love how it turned out. Funny story - the offset tires remind me of a purple sparkly bike I had as a little girl that my older brother butchered and put different size wheels on. I had to ride with a scooter wheel on the front hunched over for weeks before my mom...

    Thanks, I was kind of partial to the profile picture, but now that you mention it, the brick picture does showcase the bike much better.

    After months of work and some inconsistant posts (sorry), my first build off bike is finished. I had a blast! It was a lot of fun taking part in something that every year, I see bring so much happiness to my husband. Now I understand. Its been a lot of fun seeing all the builds progressing, and...

    Sorry for the absence folks, life gets away from you sometime. I've been waiting for a class date for OTS, didn't get picked up for the July class, likely won't get August either. There's a chance I'll make the class in September. If not I have to wait until January, next year. So this is what...

    My husband keeps bugging me to do a post so, our son's in bed so here goes. Not a lot of progress, but not a whole lot more left to do either. Today I got the 4 coats of satin clear sprayed, so sometime this week I should be able to start putting it all together. I still need to reupholster...

    Thanks for the comments, and lo and behold, I'm making a timely post. I got some more goodies in the mail over the past couple of days. Some nice old school red sparkle grips and a Mexican blanket or as they call them in Mexico, a blanket. I'm going to try my hand at upholstery, or at least...

    Sorry folks, I've been working on this bike, taking pictures and what not, just not posting anything. A full time job, a five year old, prepping myself for OTS, both physically and mentally (study, run, ride, read, repeat.), I'm a busy girl. So I'm going to hit you with all the my work from last...

    Saturday was a little welding and putting some stuff together to get an idea of where I'm heading with this build. Tried some stuff, got some ideas, have a good idea of a direction now. I think I'm going with a 24" rear wheel with a fat tire and a 26" up front with a skinnier tire, both...

    Ro11fast or Go Home ☆finished☆

    This is my first build off and my first build! I was recently accepted to the Air Force Officer Training School as an Intel officer which means all my prep time is now somewhat free time. I've watched my husband, Missing Link, build dozens of bikes over the years and am looking forward to...
