Having just wrapped up my build I've been looking around the shop trying to figure out what my next project will be. I know some of you guys finished pretty early on, quite a few just finished, some of you are still burning the midnight oil. So, what are your future and/or current projects as BO11 wraps up?

I put "Peggy Suicide" my '52 Schwinn project on the back burner half way through the build off;

I got it rideable first and have been riding the rubber off it since, it may stay unfinished for a while, maybe till the winter build off.
A month or so ago I traded my Worksman klunker to @Jsparks for his early Stream Ride Electra Rat Rod, I may completely redo that bike to my vision of "ratrod", bare metal, rust, no fenders, big chainring etc. That would be fun.

I need to finish my TRM tank build, rebels cause. Also, think I'll get in on the m.b.b.o. And finally, I just ordered the last parts needed for my Indian moped restomod.



Oh, and my wife wants me to build her bike too.

Collecting parts from donor bikes I have gleaned since the BACK40 went up in the neighborhood.

Have a frame, seat, fork, cranks, front wheel, in that stash for my MBBO build in Sept!

Keeping up on repairs for friends and neighbors and their friends. Fall is the best time to ride mountain bike trails here in the north country.

I'm still trying to figure out how to get all my accumulated stuff wedged into the house I grew up in that still has 60 yrs of my parents stuff in it...
I'm going to finally have a nice shop. But getting it set up like I want while moving in and out is going to be tough...
Luckily, I'm still in the same town.

I'll be cleaning my garage up again today, I'll get you some pics of how I organized frames and such. Might give you some ideas.

Well, today I'm trying to organize parts.
Build off bike is done, so I'm back to fixing up a couple of bikes to flip.
This last week I finished cleaning / repairing a beach cruiser, an almost mint little Huffy Rock IT...BMX, and I built a custom little BMX out of three old bmx bikes I had laying around. Got rid of two bikes that way.
Also, I picked up a couple of bikes that I'm putting aside just incase I go for the Muscle Bike B.O.
