    My buddy Robert puts on a ride every year. Its called "Meet Your Maker". There's a raffle with tons of cool stuff. 4 bikes this year. So Robert calls me and sez "I've got a old cruiser, let's fix it up for MYM". I think 3 weeks until MYM, no problem. Bad thought. 20170422_172515.jpg the beast 20170628_064307.jpg let's put a JC Higgins tank on it 20170423_150617.jpg pretty close already 20170507_102230.jpg 20170507_102234.jpg that works 20170512_090022.jpg how about some Schwinn truss rods 20170628_064943.jpg back from PC 20170627_222454.jpg uh oh i got problems.

    NO PROBLEM! For some reason the frame got hung up in powder coat for almost 2 weeks. I get it back on Wednesday, 3 days before the Saturday event. Yikes! Nothing wants to fit or line up of course. To make a long story short, this bike showed me no love. It got finished 6:00 am Saturday morning. 20170617_074919.jpg 20170617_075149.jpg 20170617_075140.jpg 20170617_075222.jpg
