    Man that sucks, sorry to hear!
    I had several experiences like that years ago with car parts, that's what inspired me to do as much as I can on my own projects, even if it does take 10X longer.
    In the end, you have more pride with the end result.

    I'm sorry to hear of your run of bad luck. I'm with the others though I'd have been at the point of rat choking the crap out of someone. I've been labeled as a 'purist' by some here but the fact is I appreciate just about anything nice or well done whether it be a road bike, custom, rat, or whatever. This is a rat Phantom that I put together about six years ago from parts I had laying around based on a '50 Phantom carcass I had. Originally I was going to restore the bike but I have five original Phantoms (three boys, two girls) so I decided just to enjoy this bike the way it is. I sure hope things turn around for you and look forward to seeing the finished bike. V/r Shawn
