Yes it's totally wrong to have more than one project going at a time. REALLY? Nah, as I've got 4 or 5 proje ts going and don't know if I'm coming or going at times.. I like where your hoping with this Typhoon. Keep us posted.. Good luck.. Mark..Is it wrong to have more than one project bike going at once? Good, because here’s my third. I was looking for a completely trashed bike that was complete and largely dent free and I found it 100 miles away just north of the Tappan Zee/ Gov. Cuomo bridge in NY. I made the trip worthwhile by walking the bridge path which I can highly recommend. Actually, the bike made the trip worthwhile all by itself. The plan is strip it down to the frame, powder coat the frame, fork, chain guard and fenders, rebuild the Bendix redline coaster and front hubs and hunt up some replacements for the rims, seat and handlebars that were chrome plated brown air. Goal is not to bring it back to showroom, but to make it look really hot in a retro way: candy apple/black cherry red with flat black components, since the chrome won’t clean up. I’m leaving the hubs and the chain wheel/crank chrome since those cleaned up beautifully. Bought a white Typhoon decal set. The big 5 parts are off at the powder coater and everything else is either soaking in mineral spirits or Evaporust. Wish me luck.
