    ORIGINAL BUILD THREAD STARTS HERE

    title-verboten.jpg


    I am in again. No mockups yet (since I am still on the West Coast). I have a build name VerBoten, but it's not really a theme or anything. All I know so far is that I plan on using my Elgin Twin frame and an Evanaction springer and some other parts to be determined later. I'll update more of what my thoughts/plans are for this build once I am back home and not working.

    The cool part is that I had a couple of sweet CL scores that once I resell them will pay for both the frame and the forks. So basically those are free parts you are looking at so far.

    Thanks for selling me that fork!!!! Time I saw it, I just felt like it would work great on the Elgin Twin. Can't wait to get it this week and mock it up on the frame.

    Thanks, guys and gal. I have always felt this frame reminds me of some of the Basman and Ruff frames. That may influence my direction on this one.
