    Thanks @OddJob, I saw that. I'm not working on models much right now, too many other things going on. I did build the reissue of the Schwinn Stingray last winter.

    I build scale models and this is a Gasser I built from a Plymouth wagon aftermarket resin body. I used some lace decals on the outer panels and tried to create a fish scale type of motif in the middle. I want this bike to be a conversation starter with potential clients.

    Hi, My name is Neil, and I too old for this stuff, but I'm still trying to relive and improve my childhood. I am in the process of restarting a business (my old job was outsourced to Manila), and that business will take me back to a place I love - the drag strip. I will need a working bike to...
