    The Glorious Liberation of the People's Technocratic Republic of Vinnland by the Combined Forces of the United Territories of Europa

    ^^That wouldn't all fit in the title box. (Thanks Luke)

    Anyway, I think I'll go ahead and give it a shot. I may not finish, but you didn't really think I would actually sit this out did you?

    Anyway, starting with this 24" Higgins.

    I'll strip and repaint, change the fork and bars, and either replace or re "vamp" the seat. Maybe a couple other things.....

    It'll take time, progress will be slow, but stick around....

    The name is a clue to what the final product will look like.

    Thanks, I threw it together when I got stuck during my rebels cause build. But I've had a couple ideas and suggestions for it since then.

    I suggest putting that name on the chain guard with Vinnland and the United Territories of Europa's crest.

    That'd be a heck of a guard, but I had a similar thought.

    I know I can atleast fit the vinnland flag.

    Cool idea. Dig the drag bike theme. We have one near where i met up with you that me and the neighborhood guys race around the block. Looks like a fun one. How is the new job going?
