"Avatarless": I used this image of me and Mrs. Patton herself in August, 1979, at 21 yrs old, standing in one section of her Ft. Worth, Texas Pattons Schwinn Shop "parts" yard with long hair and geekball tight shorts. You only see about 1/5th of the yard. I discovered her shop while working for International Harvester out of Dallas. It was deeply stacked with frames and wheels, and the back of the store and the outside sheds were crammed with chests and boxes of old parts that she let me dig through every weekend. I barely dented it. While going through the yard there, a giant RAT suggested I start building bikes. The Silver King is a long-closed mine here in Utah..

Like too see a full size pic. of that looks like good stuff....

I'm an emotional guy.
I also whine alot.
An adult acting like a spoiled kid when I dont get my way.
I'm loud and just want to be heard...daggum it!

It's all about the Rescue / Revival and of course the Tanklights!!

How did I run out of room so fast?

Mine is the '55 Chevy I've owned for 30 years.
The Monstermaker name comes from building "Monster Garage" type stuff for Burning Man. The outrageous bikes you used to see at Burning Man (when it was still wild and not so watered-down like it is now) are what led me here, as well as being into rat rod cars.

Celebrities made it trendy... such a shame.
