    A couple Saturdays ago, Art and I rode from the launchpad to Crank N Grind where his welder was at. The seat had broke a weld from the night before. After he welded.it back together we hung out and talked. Great guy. I think this one was the second.

    Fully agree. Lots of things todo with that big of a canvass. One thing I saw a couple weekends ago, engraving is working its way back with a bigger showing this year than before. With all those extra holes on those wheels, it has me thinking EL Wire for lighting them up. Way better than...

    Had a friend win a raffle last weekend who gave me this huge SA hub for a very nice price. It should end up on my build off bike. If things go as I want them to...

    I got the opportunity to hang out with Marty in last weeks fun over at Mike Brittain's mom's place. Smart creative guys... At the show, and after, we hung out and heard a lot of stories about the 00's custom bike scene. Thanks, she's put in a ton of hard work. We are so proud of her. She's...

    I'm still kicking around a few ideas. Saw this Marty Eden built custom bike from the early days that may be an inspiration for my build. Have a lot of irons in the fire. Will have a late start, my daughter is graduating from vet school at the first of the month.

    Thank You Ian! I haven't done much on this except ride it around the house. Finished up the Darts disc brake conversion and brake line replacement last weekend. Added mx bars to my BuildOff bike from last summer for the Wednesday ride downtown last night. I like it better like this... M...
