    Re: "Muscle-Bike-Build-Off" FINISHED BIKES THREAD! 4 BIKES UP!

    Have to agree with you on that! :mrgreen: If we get bikes of this quality and style on a small anything goes buildoff, I cant wait to see the big one later in the year!!! :shock:

    Re: "Muscle-Bike-Build-Off" FINISHED BIKES THREAD! 4 BIKES UP!

    I just recieved a message from Jake "oleskool" that he will be unable to finish his bike. He is under doctors orders to take it easy for a while, and aside from that he has decided to take his bike in a new direction anyway...

    He did say that he was thinking of starting a new thread for those that were unable to finish and they will start a new build off together, he may also be allowing new entries so if you are interested get in touch with him. :wink:

    So with all that said and done, he told me to set up the voting booth for the 4 bikes that are presented here, so that will be up soon!
    Start thinking about which 2 bikes you will vote for! I cant say that I envy you, the quality and variety presented is far better than I think anyone thought would happen. :mrgreen:

    Luke.

    Thanks for that... not sure when I'll be down that way but will let you know if I am. I just really tightened the handlebar heaps and it seems ok.

    Took it for a ride into the Kurbside Rodders 30th anniversary display in the Kerikeri main street last Saturday 8) . Had some good comments but the gears are still not right. :?

    Took the bike in to my tire guy today to show him, because he made me promise to show him when it was done,
    first thing he says is "How much?" :shock: To which I replied "Not for sale" but he was not happy with that answer...

    Long story short, sadly the "50 years" bike is no longer mine, he made me an offer I could not refuse, and he threw in some tires I need for the big build off too. Sad to see it go, but the extra money will be put back into the next bike for the big build off and I am running out of room to store many more bikes anyway, so not too upset really...

    Well, maybe a little... But on to the next one... :wink:

    Luke.

    Luke good you were able to sell the buildoff bike at a good price, it will be fun to see what you do for the big buildoff.

    Funds are too low for me right now, I was thinking of purchasing some equipment, but I think I can find better places to put the money right now. I'll just be puttering far away from the bigboys for awhile :)

    peace

    Rich

    Thanks Troy!
    Miss that bike... :oops: Sold it to a guy that really liked it. Still, the money from that allowed us to compete in the current big build off.

    Loved doing this little build off, the guys in it were all good fun and great at sharing ideas as we went.
    Showed in the final products too...
    Must do it again sometime.

    Luke.
