Psychographic: "I decided to simplify the graphics."

Uh huh. Simple
I am laughin' because I LOVE your simplicity @Psychographic, and I was all proud of myself because I had put in some quality/quantity/any time squirting paint at mine! Looks so great! I am so lazy!

Man, this is THE THREAD! I really gotta keep up...

Soul Garage's "Can't Afford the Gas" showcase / ride video is the best self produced (wrote and performed the soundtrack as well) one I've seen on here in my 6 years ! You've got to watch this!

I really like that one. That was the first bike i really did a no paint restoration on. It started snowing while i was trying to keep my water temperature up. It was a nightmare. It finished well though.

I'll tell you a story. I met a couple of guys about eight years ago who wanted to start a cruiser bicycle club. Just something layed back and non judgmental where anyone could come out and ride with their kids on the weekend in a park or something. I thought it was an awesome idea. I had some kids i was trying to get to play outside. I met Ratrod through them and figured out we were all grabbing thrift bikes and rebuilding them from the same places to fund our hobby. My first couple attempts at a ratrod bicycle were kinda pitiful and I got worse before I got better. I am really happy with where both clubs have gone. I love how class I is still anchored in dressing up an old bike to make it something personal and how competitive it is. My favorite part is how hard i have to push "just make it go with whatever you have in the yard" to compete with the guys in class II. We have some really skilled guys haunting these pages. I have wound up with some really cool keeper bicycles trying to keep with them. I don't miss not having 60 some odd personal bicycles is all I am saying and relish in the fact I collected them "one piece at a time". Selling the concourse ones i have learned how to build in here to fund my "personal favorites collection" is awesome.

the Mowerrarri in the background is also Ratrod's fault. In my defense these were both really practical bicycles.
