Steampunk is both wonderful and yes, a little nuts. Glad you like it.

So our daughter, son-in-law and grandson were here yesterday and son-in-law checked out the steam bike for the first time. He's an engineer on an oil rig. He's not a real talkative guy. After he left, my wife asked what he thought of the project. I said he didn't have much to say. She said, "Maybe he thinks it's a little crazy." I said, "Well, think about it, dear - your husband is building a steam powered bicycle in the basement. He's also building a steam powered flying machine model, a steam powered trike model and copper pipe canes, crosses and saxophones. Oh, and I built that VW powered reverse trike in the garage. If that isn't nuts I don't know what is."

"Oh", she said. Reality check. Yep, mad scientist is about right. But it's great being crazy - I'm having a bunch of fun.
