Added reply in a thread Would you be willing to race this? 2/13/2014 1:51 PM
I would, but I will try to race anything that sits still long enough for me to get on it. I just would not buy it from that dude. I agree on the garage queen topic as well unless it is just an absolute one off or historical piece. All I build are meant ... more »

Good for him!! I could not agree more with Newmann as I "seed" it with my own baby browns. Tony C is a great dude and Mike Alessi as well.

I will answer what I can and in no particular order. I could have written a thesis and never have said it as well as FTE did on KLP. Well done my friend. Nice stuff, awkward to work with in my opinion. I am about half way through the 480 conversion and ... more »

It looked to be Mr.Green. I took that pic at Tom's "Bikes and Burgers night" a couple of years ago but I do not remember any info on it other than the pic on the rung below it. If you can zoom in on it you can see where it was "added on to". A very cool ... more »
