    Looking forward to this.. going to even try to enter this year, doing a project within a timeframe, especially with NY fall weather, never seems to work out, but I need a kick in the pants to finish something. :)
    Decisions, decisions... hmmm

    What's the rule on multiple entries ? still ok with 2 ?

    Not trying to nitpick, but can you clarify the rules on minor frame mods ? if they fit the class ?
    In other words - would a sexchange but stock appearing bike be ok in class 1 ?
    What about cutting out and rewelding a brake bridge ( ie: swap from coaster to 3 speed Stingray ) ?

    3: Tire size rake is encouraged.

    Doing this from my phone as I am away from my computer, but I will try and address the questions that have come up while I have been offline.

    Multiple entries are still allowed.

    We really want class 1 to be for original rebuilds/refurbs, as such I would say that all frame mods would be class 2, but, IF you can do the mods and it appears completely factory (adding a brake bridge to allow 3 speed as suggested and it appears as a factory 3 speed model) you might get away with staying in class 1.

    Exactly right, skinnier or smaller front, fatter/taller rear.
    Actually no car tires in my plans so far this year! :nerd:

    Luke.

    Now I see what confused me, "tire size rake is encouraged". I know that could mean same rim size with different tire size, but there's a possibility my idea won't even fit in class 2. I may be sitting this one out.

    Here is another bike that was gifted to me from the same person that gave me the jaguar for campground cruiser. 1970 Schwinn Krate it's pretty roached out. I am not sure if I want to dig into this one, especially so soon after this last build. It appears it has been painted black, it has a black badge and a bit of red paint in the ss#. I am not sure what the original model was. Maybe the cotton picker due to black badge?? Any ideas? I may consider selling whole or parting it out.

    Nice project.. I have heard that if Schwinn dealers sold a large amount of bikes they got a limited number black stingrays ?. Also have seen a Cole crate stingray but I'm no expert on them.

    Had a lot of fun in RRBBO 11 so I have a areobee that's been waiting in the wings so might try this B O to.

    Well, I know I won't be building Afterburner, I used the seat and megapost for SaltHammer

    Maybe I'll find a use for this big seat since no one is buying it from my sale thread.
