    Ok he is a winner with all of us that have been following his build but theres so many great builders going at this right now that I think there are going to be quite a few winners like all of us that get to watch these great pieces of works come together.... I was planning to quit building after this bike and just start riding but the things I've seen coming out of this build off makes me rethink my giving up building bikes. So many cool things are getting done that I just cant wait to start another one....psssst dont say anything to my wife though..ok...cool

    Coming from another builder of seemingly unridable fantasy bikes, I too am watching this build with anticipation. I really like all of the bikes youve built. You are probably not limited to just bikes are you? I build all kinds of wacky things too. It just depends what I have in front me at the time. Im always being asked how I come up with ideas and I tell people that it just comes to me. I dont understand it and neither do they. So just remember, people usually dont remember normal things. Keep up the awesome building. And hey, it would be cool if one day we could colaberate on some kind of madness.

    The Hop Shop has been running full steam lately with monday's deadline fastly approaching. I took a little break to grab some photos of where the shop is at on the build. I think its fair to say that it is about 80% there.

    I never would have looked at fork crowns and thought "cylinder heads". Very creative.
