    Re: Full View- How much longer do we have?

    As panic mode sets in...

    Added the chainring tonight, I reversed it so I could take advantage of the look awesome solid power disc (Porkchop BMX).

    Re: Full View- Columbia art

    Great work on the graphic. Did you have to hand cut it out?
    it would be awesome if you could incorporate " not bought" under it.

    "Not 100% sure about the mirrors???"

    I'm 100% sure.

    No need for mirrors at the salt flats.

    Just my .02

    True... true... Case of overcooking but it was part of my original concept so I wanted to see it... Mirrors off and I'm stepping away from the bicycle!

    +1 The mirrors took away from the clean lines and flow of the bike.

    Re: Full View- Thats all folks!

    Full View is a 1955 Columbia built bicycle that was a complete wreak when I purchased it... Over the last few weeks I restored the finish and brought her back to life. I wanted to make something that was auto inspired so I added some speed elements that you would find in a vintage rat rod plus a couple of over the top elements. I put a lot of heart and soul into this bike it was a really fun and challenging build for sure.

    Re: Full View- Thats all folks!

    Had the bike on some roof racks (STUPID) and a gust of wind caught those disc and basically all heck broke loose and the bike broke the mount and twisted falling inward and on top of my wife's car, no damage to the car but the tank took a little ding- a life lesson for sure could have been a disaster.

    Oh crap! I can imagine the sinking feeling after all that work! At least it didn't fall to the ground from the roof.

    I've always admired your work and this is no exception. Looks like the voters agree. Its gonna be a fun nail biting race.
