    i have way too many ideas in my head, and way too many options to do for my build off. im completely torn between my ideas. ill list them and maybe you guys can help pick. :lol:
    First:
    Build another version of my favorite fixie, built from a varsity and some cool random parts, sadly sold away

    Second:
    Another re-do; my last build off bike, but do it the way i wanted to(lack of time and money limited me the first time around)

    Third:
    Finish my long-time project, a 1979 Mongoose Motomag restoration that could use some good motivation.

    What about a really low stretched out drag bike. Like a drag motorcycle so you sitting in front of the crank.

    First of all in build off 5 your not alowed to strech bike frames...but would be a good idea to do that in a future project.
    Second have you finished your mini build off...im really wanting to see what you built...
    Third go with the re-do of you last build off bike...i think it would be cool to upgrade a bike that was build in last years build off.ya know something new...
    Last no matter what you do i will be sure to follow your build because i like the work you have done in the past. :wink:

    I think I have a pretty good idea of what you have planned :lol: . That is if you stick with the drawing.

    be careful with a drag bike... if youre putting the crank behind the seat, it may not be too comfortable for a cupple of your friends :wink:

    that was one of the big deciding factors for doing the dragster instead of the drag bike for my rrbo5 buildoff entry. :lol:
    you know i am already sold on the idea, can't wait to see a drag bike hit the scene.
