wow looks like some of you are way ahead of the game with your builds ,
I feel really fortunate to have found the time to just get the bike apart
that was no easy feat as the headset was frozen solid??? I had to torch
it off but I did save the fork at least and I started wet sanding and removed
an old licence sticker and thats about it so hopefully I can spend some time this week to finnish sanding and get some paint on it.
no pics just yet of the progress ...soon

Doug I have seen that bike but really I am not going to build a car out of a bike.

Later

In honor of breast cancer awareness month I would just like to remind everyone to "Think Pink"

it warmed up enough to squirt some paint and I must admit that in almost
40 yrs of building bikes I've never painted one pink :roll:
Hopefully it will start getting pieced together after some drieing time and I must say some of the bikes are coming along nicely !

in between work , kids , the honey doo list and steelhead fishing I have not got very far on this bike but here it is so far.
the Elvis / Mary Kay Caddy :lol:

I know ...lousy pics shot in the dark but.........
the front shot sorta reminds me of a unicorn with the spring reversed

with some luck it will be a rider this w/e

the object of the spinger mod is to make the bike longer...caddies are long
cars and low as well....ever seen a jacked up caddy ?
The spring is now redundant and may not stay on the bike but I just did not have the correct length bolt laying around the house.
