That sucks! Wanted to see this one finished. I could see someone scrapping aluminum bike frames, but the price on scrap steel is so cheap is it even worth their time? I deal with recycling old bike parts all the time, barely get enough for a sixer when I drop off a full Jeep load of scrap.

keep the rubber side down!

Well, I set the frame outside of my garage to work on it tonight then went inside to take a phone call. When I can back outside 15 minutes later...
POOF, it's gone!!
D@m scrap metal scrounge b@st@rds hitting the community on recycle night and I couldn't find them driving around town.
And believe me, I went looking for them (with my crowbar, lol)

Back to the drawing board I guess...

You have got to be kidding me.
crowbar huh? Times like this are why I keep a machete tucked between the console and the passenger seat. :happy:
Sorry to hear this Troy...to think, all that work bought some nine iron a couple of Pabst tallboys.

Good deal you found another frame. That's a cool one too.

Sucks they snatched your other one. They may have thought you were tossing it.
There's a restoration bike shop in my area. They always have extra frames available. Nothing too old or sought after, just project stuff they will sell a at a decent price. This frame set me back $15.

It looks COOL!...I still haven't figured where it's going yet...But I like where it's going (I think). I've been sitting in front of my computer, turning my head side to side, like a dog looking at a treat, trying to find the right angle of how it will sit.....Once again my wife thinks I'm nuts, I hope she doesn't start calling me Spot, or Astro or Rin Tin Tin.
