I cant wait to see this bike done. I also did a patriotic bike in the build off. Seems like your dad has alot of nice equipment and a nice lookin workshop for you and your brothers to work in and it is a great thing that he is letting you. Make sure you thank him because what he is showing you how to do is great knowledge for you that will be very valuble in your future. Keep up the great work well all be watching.

sjeeeeez.... You're building a beautiful bike 8-o You tackle this job as if you were born with a wrench and a screwdriver in your hands. I remember when I was nine MY main problem was I couldn't get some of my LEGO's to fit...

Good job! But you'ld better hurry up...
(I'll bet this bike's gonna get a top 5 spot. At least...)

Well I was at Ricks today so he could show me how to use his sandblaster so I could blast my Lemon Peeler frame. Rick and I went for our usual tour of his bike collection, his parts area, his new two bicycle stand, his new fork straightner, his 3/4 new (old) bikes, his new (old) bike tools, his new (old) CWC/Roadmaster frame with tank and springer. We had our usual banter about old bikes, new bikes and bikes that dont even exist yet. When out of the blue Rick casually says... hey come check out Z's military build for the RRBO4. My first thought was oh its finished and how good can it be? After all it was his 9 year olds build? Casually we both strolled over to his painting area, reach the door way, peeked over to the end of the area... For those of you who have had the opportunity to see a black hawk helictopter in person and have had a sinking feeling in your stomach from the sheer excitement of having such a magnificant machine in front of you. Thats exactly the feeling I had! OVERWHELMED :eek: This bike is an absolute piece of art. The details of this bike is amazing. I dont want to give anything away before he post it as officially finished. I will tell you this... HOLY SH** To top it off, its a dedication to his son in the Marines scheduled to be deployed to Afganistan in December..Nice job Rick and Semper Fidelis
