This is my first bicycle build that I am attempting, so the build off comes at a great time. I ordered my parts a month ago and have had them for a couple of weeks. I am a welder/manual machinist, electrician by trade. I am calling my project Lucky #7 because when I went to Shapiro supply in St. Louis Mo. to purchase my 6061T-6 tubing and flat stock I made a stop at the River City Casino to play roulette and won more than what it cost. So my build has begun.
