    Thx Tuck Tuck! Unfortunately I had to pull the plug on the custom handle bars because of time. But I will be using them on the next build so stay tuned!

    This is looking really good to me! Wish I had those fab skills. I think I need to grab some scrap metal & play with the welder a little bit!

    Well guys....reality has set in. I probably won't be submitting a completly finished "STEEL CITY" I haven't stopped production at all. In fact it's way up! But I will enter what I have at the time. Fabrication will be done but not paint. This build has more meaning to me then the awesome bragging rights that comes with being in a RRB build off. It will be show casing a little bit of the work I will be putting out there under my new PEDALWHIPS Custom Bicycles venture. Now...off my soap box and back to the laboratory! lol

    A rider by the end of the weekend? You can still make the deadline then, with time to spare!

    I will enter what I have done on march 1st for sure! It just won't be painted which is a pretty big part of the build also to me. lol

    Mine wont be painted either, but that was the plan from the start, so I am right on track!
