    Update time. For the past week I've been held hostage by a tribe of hungry cannibals, left in a pot to boil and escaped with barely my life because I knew I needed to get back to work on this bike. I'll be alright once I get the smell of garlic off of me. Heres what I've got done since getting home Saturday morn.

    Re: Victus Mortuus (Feelin Good! Major update)

    Well the lucky shirt and a little perseverance paid off today. I'm starting to realize that Im going to finish this bike in time. I found a suitable gooseneck as well so all that is lacking is a few things which should be finished up before the deadline. The bike is really heavy as expected. I hope this bike can be a rider that I can take out to shows. I need to get a heavy duty headset for this beast so any suggestions on that would be appreciated. My lbs carries cheap china junk. Enjoy... Im going swimming.

    One of my favorites--still hoping for articulated legs that run on cranks from the front wheel.

    Or maybe springs in the elbows so the arms wave around?

    Re: Victus Mortuus (Getting Skulled)

    I would love to have that stuff on my bike but due to time constraints it aint gonna happen. In fact after looking at the pictures I decided that the arms looked to short so I busted them off. Just glad I hadn't finished them yet. Maybe articulation could be something I do to it in the future. I just dont know if the legs would be an easy thing to do because they are the frame.
