Two weeks to go and I'm anxious to build.
I'm building one and rebuilding another.
They'll most likely both be in Class 2.
entry one: Hot Rod Lincoln

entry two: the bike formerly known as CycleDelic

This one rides nice but I was disappointed with the red in the dip paint job turning pink and I hate the seat so I'm stripping it down and turning it inside out. Frame, sissy and bars are all that will remain...

Looks like I might enter 2 bikes. One of my Tues morning coffee buds brought me his '69 Schwinn Sting Ray this morning. Wants to restore it so his future grandchildren can enjoy it.

It's in pretty good shape. Prob won't touch the frame, but to clean and linseed oil. The rear tire is a Schwinn, but it replaced his original slick. Will try to keep both tires, and wheels. Hope the red house paint comes off the rear....

The bars are original, but got backed into by a car. Will keep the grips, need banana seat, sissy bar, and handlebar.

The other bike will def be in Cat 2 as it is a 26" Rollfast frame. Big boy muscle bike, fat rear slick, 24" front wheel.....and....completely out of my realm....'shiny' and 'geared' :13::wondering::grin:

Class 1: '71 Aerobee.

Class 2: "Eat Me". You'll see it on day 1.
Nice. I need a good name for the bike formerly known as CycleDelic, something pure Muscle Bike. In the line of Screamer, Eliminator, Dragster, Racer, Chopper, Slingshot, Spyder, Judge, and of course Sting-Ray.

@GuitarlCarl ....fresh off your photo-genic BO-11 amplifier build, I'm thinking maybe an effects pedal name might work....Overdrive, Turbo boost, Distortion, Phaser, Equalizer, Tube Screamer, Heavy Metal, Blues Driver....and maybe my favorite: Boss.
