Wow, I like it, and I'm 72 years old.  I like it when some one makes something different.

Really cool thanks for sharing. I have been looking for an old vintage bike to make one that looks like an old board track racer.
Something like this but this is not mine.

How many would you like , I have a whole barn full of them , not sure how far from western NY you are but you could have your pick for free , I have way to many bikes to store and have been sending some of them to new homes just to make room before winter gets here

Well, Thanks for the offer.  I would love to have one but your almost 500 miles from me.  I'm in a suburb of Cincinnati Ohio.  I have been checking auctions and Craigslist etc and they seem to be getting harder to find and a bit pricey around here.  I'm sure I'll find one sooner or later.  Like to find an old fat tire Schwinn with the springer fork.

A schwinn bike with springer front fork was my first real bike(wo whizzer). The springer was real nice compared to ridged fork riding on brick paved streets.

Those are really COOL! I have a hand built carbon fiber street bike I love. Have ever concidered doing cutom motorcycles? I think you would be good at it.

Your bikes are very nice. OriginAl designs for sure. You are a true craftsman. Local fellow up here who has put CARtoons magazine back into publication brings a couple custom bikes to shows but yours are really over the top.

I have thought about it but there is to much BS with the DMV when you build a motorcycle , so I think I will just stay with the bicycles for now until OCC calls and offers me a job

It real easy when you have all the tubing benders right in my shop , can do from 1/2" to 1 3/4" tubing and pipe up to 3" , we used to build race cars and when I got out of the race cars I kept all the fab tools to do other projects
