Man that sucks, sorry to hear!I thought I would share whats gone on since my last blog, at this time this is whats happened to my project, the jc higgins rear rack I sent to the fabricator was turned into a pancake by a hydraulic press by an employee that set it down on a platform where they press aluminum sheets into custom shapes for large fuel tanks, luckily the reflectors were not fitted into the rack at the time but they were nice enough to return the item to me in a walmart shopping bag, we exchanged a few more personal thoughts on the accident, idiot. surprised I wasnt charged 50 cents for the bag, chroming on the chain guard came out beautifully but the dents were left in and I was told that there guy that did metal work as such before the chroming was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, Really I said and you chromed it anyway, can I talk to your manager this was not our arrangement, sorry you can't he was the one arrested, so now it will have to be made right and rechromed else where, bike shop lacing my front hoop with a schwinn expansion drum brake lost my clevis and can't find it, oh did I forgot to mention that the hoop that was used was not mine! I have original S2 chromed and I dont have a clue what or where he found that swapmeet special but it wasn't what I brought in, I left there with my rim that was in the corner and drum brake, idiot. at this time I would like to thank those members who have added to my compulsive buying of bicycle parts which has really turned my project around and up grading it into one that I might of not been able to do without there late night positings of sale items, lol but I really mean it, Im hooked on reading and seeing posted photos of bicycles and parts before and after as well as barn finds and stuff I never had a clue existed, well I see that it's after midnight and I haven't checked for new listings yet so until then...............
no not really, there are members on here that could help you way more than I could, I have had many changes due to my buying habits which went over board and have delayed the project only because of being to particular because I really love bike assorries and wanted to be different but now it looks like an over killI am also thinking about doing a custom and I'm looking for ideas any advice
