Got this beauty in the mail from @Princepavo today. Back in 2007 @Uncle Stretch build his first stetched Colson clone. Early 2008 he built a 2nd and 3rd one for Steve's Dad (@RatRodDad) and Steve (@Rat Rod). After a lot of digging around, I've determined that Uncle Stretch still has #1, @ind-chuckz has #2, and I now own #3.

I’m sure it’s in the build history, but what’s the little J shaped tubing behind the seat post? Edit: one quick click on the link answered my question. So never mind on that.
another comment: maybe you should stamp 003 in the rear drop out.

That funky extension off the seatpost area was done by Tikiharl for a gripshifter. I don't care for it, so I will probably be chopping that off.
I like the idea of stamping it with a US003 or something :D
