Topics I've Started
Posted 15 Jan 2009OK, so I had an idea for a fun little contest. I'm working on a project right now, I have all the parts collected for this build, and am just waiting to get the F/F set back from painting.
I also have quite a few little bits laying around that I will not be using, and thought it would be a nice way to "pay forward" some of the pieces.
The rewards are small, and will be a surprise (ie, I'm not telling you what I'll be sending you), but I think it'd be a lot of fun to give em away in this manner. And I think it'd be pretty cool to see the build come together in this way.
As I said in the title, this will be an ongoing thing, so the first person to get the correct answer to the first question opens the door to the next question, and so-on, and so-on, until the build is done.
Now, not everyone will be able to participate, sorry, but some people already know about this, so that wouldn't be fair. And those people are on the honor system not to say anything to anyone else. Off the top of my head there are 3 or 4 members, but I won't name names....I'm sure they know who they are. And I know they won't spoil it, 'cause their cool like that.
Only rule.....don't PM me about this. Only posts will be counted. Soooooooooo, let's get the ball rollin'!!!
Just adding this, please......you can only "enter to win" a prize once per 10 days, so if the game goes longer than 10 days your back in the game. Just seems the most fair way to do it, and since you'll be posting your responses, we have record of the dates and times.
Also, I will only be posting a max of 3 clues in a day, hopefully that'll keep ya coming back for more.............LOL
1st question......What is the frameset??
Clue....Japanese made, freestyle bike (obviously), that likes to be watched.
Posted 3 Jun 2008It's funny, but I find myself relating everything I do to the price of gas lately. Here in NJ it isn't as bad as some places, but for about $9 I can get a little more than 2 gallons of gas!!
Well, last week I spent my $9 much more wisely.................$8.55 from my local goodwill!!
Here's a before pic:
And after cleaning up a little and replacing some worn out parts!!!
It'll take me a lot longer to travel the 50 or so miles that $9 of gas would have bought, but at least I'll be riding in style!!
And before anyone makes a comment about the seat being down too low or the bars too far forward (you know who you are,,,,,,,,,,,, .............LOL) I was too excited to get done and didn't even really size it up.
