    i know , i know ..........EPIC is a word that so so played out by kids these days.

    In your case- the skills and the results you are able to achieve, with all your builds, is truly EPIC, (timeless, marvelous, and very meaningful to our hobby.)

    WOW ! WONDERFUL RESULT ! Good luck with your health.

    Another great looking bike Halfmile. You must have a shed full of them by now. Looking forward to see your next one.

    Started getting another set of wheels ready for paint (RED). First the tire removal. Piece of cake.:yikes: One more day of detailing and its ready for me to paint or change my mind again.:shootme: Plan is for dual discs, new tires F&R, drop the forks 1 1/2"-2" and a lot more detailing. We`ll see.:shrug:

    Really leaning towards Board Tracker but haven`t made the final decision yet. Still up in the air.
    I didn`t like the looks of the No Theme bike so it`s been disassembled for some changes. :shrug:
     
  8. No... That is such a beautiful bike! Well, it's true what they say, we are our own worst critics. Great work though!

    Almost finished again.:thumbsup: Got a lot of the changes made but I`m experiencing "Mail order Mayhem" Waiting on front brake lines and a couple of fittings. 15 minutes to install and 15 days to get here. Story of my life.:shrug: Calendar voting will start soon so those parts better show up Pronto!!

    Yes, I fell victim to the motorcycle "Monkey see Monkey do". Your 2 disc conversion was inspiring. I did drop the forks another 1 1/2". I think the stance looks a little better.

    The front brake lines and fittings finally got here today. Installed and brakes bled. If it would just stop raining I will get some better pics for the calendar vote.
