    That is awesome, Mike.
    It looks like that inner kid in all of us was brought out in your dad by that proud look he has on his face.
    Nothing like a shiny new bike on Christmas morning.

    I like these in red, and also in "small"
    Eventually, I'll get the time to build the 20" one. The 26" is good to go as is.
    (and would look right at home next to Darcie's girls model in white. NICE!!)

    OK - I got all three of them up and running... er, riding.
    Here they be:- 20" with all American parts except the crank sprocket... Had to do it:

    24" in need of some blackwalls that are here somewhere. A little busy with After Irma stuff for now.

    And of course, the 26"!

    And I STILL think that pretty white girl's bike needs to come and live with these guys!
