FINALLY I got logged on. Don't know what was wrong, but anyway, I finally made it.

 

I have been following this build on OS-BMX since it started and it has been really great of you guys. I want to especially thank Willinois for starting the build and Reilley for assembling the bike and passing on messages.

 

All you guys here are very generous. The GT is beautiful and Susan is going to love it. Many, many thanks to everybody who participated.

 

This sure makes our holidays special. Merry Christmas to all of you.

Wow. 13 years have flown.

 

As many of you know, Q and Oz parted ways. On my recent trip to see Bob, he told me that Q had given him the bike and that he wanted me to have it.

I plan to keep it as it was built but have to say in fairness that if anyone wants their parts back, I'd be happy to send them back to the donor.

Oz (and Q) was very grateful about the bike and said hi to all of us here at the Society.

Just let me know. I'll keep this posted for awhile.

 

(yah yah, freaking off-site posting and my mistake of posting them there so apologies for the missing pics)
