Default Starting my project soon.

Just wanted to drop a thread to inform interested folks, that im starting up my new build. Building a '70's era hardtail. The base is a recently arrived rigid ' gunslinger' frame from Flyrite Cycles. Jason, the owner is a great guy to deal with. 4 up, 2 out, 35* neck, 9 over Paugcho springer, king queen seat, . Im still hooking up 240v to my garage so i can run my welder, and a heater ( live in northern Indiana). Once thats in i can start fabbing stuff. I will update here, she is gonna be a beauty. God, i miss that time ( well, not all of it, hah!). Later.

Rokytnji; Thanks for the reply as well as the email concerning my problem accessing the site. Was able to log on today for some reason, still working that out. BTW, your scoot is still in pieces?! Spring is comin' fast, better get wrenchin', lol.

Well I got 240vac to my garage. So sometime this week I'll be starting on needed bracketry. Stay tuned as I have a cool idea or three to hide the wiring and assorted electrical warts. BTW, being an old fart is no excuse but how the F@%#, do you go about uploading and attaching pics to posts??! Thanks.

Winds tore down my back fence. So pit bull lives in the house. Might have to take trip to Alabama or Mississippi. Depending on how my in-laws fared with tornado's. So hard tail is on the back burner for now.

I have something I can ride presently. Busy lately.
