    Miss Prissy 4 Bar Hawthorne - Finished

    Hello everyone, I'm back for build-off 11. I purchased this Hawthorne from the Ann Arbor, Michigan bike show last month. My plan was to do a bike for my wife and the idea is "anything she wants". Not sure if this is a good idea, but happy wife - happy life. :) So I guess you can call this a...

    Here is my submission for the calendar photo contest. The photo reminds me of a secret bike parking spot outside the back of a church.

    Flameliner (added more pics)

    I really enjoyed putting this bike together, it rides real nice and I am very pleased at how it turned out. Started to take some pictures but I was concerned that the background was to busy, I hope to add some more if I can find a location to add my roadster in the background.

    BO-X - Flameliner - Finished

    Have you ever built a bike or for that matter ever hand built anything and then years or even months later looked at it, and said to yourself "What was I thinking". So back two years ago I built a bike for build off 8. I was using this Spaceliner bike and trying to be creative and economical...

    I played a lot of sandlot baseball as a young boy and the memories of riding my bike with the bat and glove laying out across the handlebars is a memory of much easier times. This picture to me brings back that time when my only worry was if I was going to be coming home late for dinner.

    Stitch -aka (Spaceliner Newbie) Done- Another Lesson Learned

    Oh No! From the deep woods comes the ultimate newbie! Wet behind the ears, I will attempt to turn a rusted patina Sear Spaceliner that I purchased for $40 dollars into a diamond....or perhaps a cubic zirconia. Whatever! I have plans to rid my garage of numerous junk ( and a few bike parts) and...

    Hello from Michigan

    Hello all, I am a newbie who has decided to get in on the bike build off. I have done a restoration on a bike (Schwinn Tandem) 15 years ago and loved every minute of it. I have done a recent restore on an ATV Suzuki Blaster, so I'm looking to have fun with this build off. Here is a picture of me...
