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!

Okay now we will resume to my husband's Diary.

GO LOW-POWER-D! YAY! I can't wait til you guys see what he's doing to his build off now, it looks really awesome!

Are you sure it wasn't the tidal wave cause by the Kraken rising out of the water?!?? :D

..can't wait to see more awesomeness!

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:

Looks to be a '40 Colson.

Looks like I'm a wet sand away from primer.

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:
