    I paid a visit to LowpowerD today to return a borrowed tool & pick up a much needed part that he donated to the cause! Thanks a million Dave! Got a little inside look @ progress so far, but can't share it with you all (he'd kill me!). :mrgreen: This is gonna be one Sweet bike! He's got a lot of cool stuff in his collection! 8) Lookin forward to seeing the finished product.

    We had to bear through a horrible storm you wouldn't believe, knocked over my trike planter. So please take a pause in the loss of my pink color pot and think positive thoughts of the sad plants that got shoken up!

    Ok, so after a bead blast, I ran over the Huffman frame and fork over with a fine toothed comb and realized they needed a lot more work than I thought. I think I'll save all that brazing until October or November, when it's not a thousand degrees outside!
    I pushed the frame change button and this is what showed up:

    Where have you been hiding that 40? I have a 39 & have been lookin for a tank forever! Every time I find one, it's either too expensive or someone beats me to it! Can't wait to see what you do with it so I can steal some of your ideas. I also see you have a spaceliner frame/rack hiding in the background (another one of my favorite frames)! You got some cool stuff down there! 8) :mrgreen:

    I first started reading this and thought oh no! Thinking you backed over it with the car or something.
