It was my pleasure Randy. I used to do a lot of writing but for several reasons I became quite discouraged with it. Now that I am building bikes again, I feel that I should tell the stories that went along with the building process. I appreciate your comments. Keep riding.Awesome bike, story and photos. Thanks for taking the time to put together such a nice post.
I am going to throw my hat in the ring for WBO 2015. The build will be called, "The Switch-a-roo." It requires aluminum 12g spoke nipples. I am spending my evenings trying to hunt them down. No luck yet. I have an anodizing place lined up to help with some color.AMAZING! Love the story behind it ! Keep the killer work coming !
Truly ...... bike and cool story.
I wish I was able to keep the bike that my dad built for me.
He found a Raleigh Chopper and rebuilt it, painted it black with custom gold lettering on it.
When we moved to the USA it got left behind.
I build bikes now for my kids and they love every one of them, with the subtle touches I put on them
