    HOWDY EVERYONE,
    I happened to be going through an old box of stuff that never got unpacked today, and happened to find my user name, & password to get back into this forum.

    Well everyone knew that the Traveler Phantom bike was stolen, it dearly broke my heart to loose her, she was a good friend, and like a child to me, well no sense crying over spilled MILK.

    any how, last year I finally won my disability case, " after 13 yr's ", and started a brand new BUILD, this Bike Build is one that I have wanted, for about 10 yr's, but never had a chance to started it, knowing that I was able to finish it.

    FOLK'S trust me when I say, if you have any plans of building a 3 Wheel Bobber, from scratch, plan on spending alot of money,I've still got about $500.00 at least to spend on it, and already am over $1000.00 dollars spent.
    "AND SHE IS GOING TO BE A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF ART."
    so, well, I'm back, and kicking,"not as high anymore, but I'm BACK..trk

    if so, well it was a MONSTER, installed the 68.5 on a rigid $20 frame, and went to a friends birthday cook out last yr. and thought I could go home before dark," after several, very cold beers, THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT SO GOOD, WOKE UP IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM.
    Sold it the very next day for $300 and I didn't have not 1 thin dime in it.

    It was a fantastic Build, that Firestone Bike was a $5.00 scrape frame, and $65.00 profit, I think that there are some pics of it in my F.B

    Hello everyone,
    Alot has happened sense 2012, I had moved back to Tennessee in 2015, but
    have decided to make another Journey across America with a few changes in the route.
    I will be posting the entire route Friday May 3, 2016 on my Facebook page, I am hoping to have a bigger following of the journey in Facebook media, and am really hoping to have others to join me with their MOTORIZED bicycles if only for just a few miles.
    I have already started plans on the new TRAVELER III bike build and it should be the best one yet.
    I will start the NEW Journey in May 2017, from CHAPEL HILL, Tn. to Richland, Washington.
    " PLEASE STAY TUNED IN TO THE PROGRESS, and HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON".shft.

    Hello EVERYBODY,
    I know it's been awhile, I have stepped up and discovered a New Bicycle Design I am currently building.
    I purchased a 73' Harley Aermacchi Z90 4 speed crankcase after doing some research measuring and luck bought a 69' Harley Rapido 125 Iron Jug, Piston and head cap then bolted it all up, in the process now of chopping up a $250 Micargi Stretched Bicycle Frame adding a triple tree front end off a 73' Yamaha AT3 125, 1.60 X 16 REAR WHEEL / 19 X 1.40 FRONT WHEEL.
    Really wanted to finish the bobber this year and ride to STURGIS but not gona happen,
    so planning STURGIS RUN 2018 .
    WISH ME LUCK

    here's what see looked like when I finished her, but then my sister's first born daughter passed away 10/02/2016 so at the time I felt that donating it to the auction to raise money for the family.

    Sorry to hear about your niece, its a honorable sacrifice for a very worthy cause to sell a bike or anything else for that matter. We all enjoy our bikes but family comes first, good luck on this new build.

    well folk's 3 weeks and counting till I return to Washington state, really looking forward to getting home, and see all my friends, I will surely miss all the family, but it's time to return to my own life, and getting back to building incredible bike builds, and also finishing my Z90/125 Aermacchi Bike.
