I can't wait to see how this bike looks when you finally get it together. I have only "built" 1 bike. When I started I was making way more money than I needed by the end of the build (bout 6 years later) I was making 1/8 of what I was making prior to starting the project. Hence it taking me so long. However it was still worth waiting for. Good luck.

I'm a vet too but older (airborne). Now I have to do something for you man. It's a bummer being posted so far like that with nothing to do on the down time.
Things have been slow here for multiple reasons. I'm waiting for the title to the motor still and need to get the rear hub to the wheel guy for lacing. I'll take the hub in tomorrow (Sunday) and as soon as it comes back I'll show you a roller. Then there's the cost of buying airtime!!!. I was using my phone to log on to the internet. Bad idea. Cost me big when I never had bucks but now I have DSL. What a pleasure. You won't believe this, you guys have a drought in the US. Corn is in short supply right?. All our food prices rose because of the drought over there. Go figure. I'll post as soon as I can with pics. Keep your head down brother.

Don't know how I missed this thread, but I just read all 31 pages and am up to speed.

tauruck, you are one very talented individual. I have always had a fascination with building things and am currently working on finishing my bike project, but now I sit here in awe of yours. The work you are doing is an inspiration to me, and by reading the other replies, to many others. I hope that your work load is favorable and your bike progress can continue. I am looking forward to seeing this project completed.

i'm not sure what Mikey has been up to, his computer time was very limited and he hasn't answered the E-mails I've sent as well. Might have to have "Francois" run up and look in on him.
