So this all started when Donnie, "AKA" gaijin, and his girlfriend Fiona were going to be in San Francisco on 10/15/11. They flew in from Florida so Fiona could run in a marathon.
My fiancee (Stephanie) and I met them in the City for dinner and drinks. We immediately clicked, and hours flew with conversation, cocktails, and food. They only had 1 night in town. At dinner, we made plans to go to Southern California for the BMX Society show on 6/2/12.
One of the questions I asked Donnie was, "what is your dream bike?" and he got back to me later with a list. Donnie was skeptical that is could be a reality, but I convinced him that I could get it ready by the BMX show.
After a slow start, and a lot of hunting, and with some help from Donnie (in Florida!), I think it's going to happen. Parts are "in the mail" and here's what we have thus far.
And, since Fiona's coming, I had to get a bike ready for her too.
