You are much too kind with that comment.

It's a good thing that "custom" emblem was attached to the hood. I just wasn't sure :o

Actually...I'm kinda jelous. When I was a young wee lad.....I did a lot of "custom" touches to my cars and trucks. Lights, tires, paint, horns, radio, switches..... Everything this guy has! So why now that I'm older have I abandoned my "young boy ways"......and look down on this. The more I look the more I like.....and like I said.... jelous! Joe likes plowing with a stock super.... imagine plowin on this mad Max machine......
I wish we could get a shot of this all lit up at night......man... :)

Just remember- when you point a finger at someone else... there's three more pointing right back at 'ya! :lol:

Now, I won't poke fun at a guy's bicycle collection... I've got a Redline 600A, two Schwinn Paramounts (all Campagnolo), a first-year Cimmarron (Dura-Ace/XT DeOre) and the criterium racer I made from shortening a Voyageur SP... but I also have a Cannondale Synapse that went on the last three RAGBRAIs...

But hey, based on the Buy It Now price, and the substantial lack of details, I'd say he's really, really, really, really proud of the 'custom' work.

Looks pretty mean, too... with those barbell weights, the black paint and stickers. Perhaps I should keep my mouth shut, lest he challenge me to a ramming contest with Loader-Mutt? :D

Wow Dave....Redline? You must have lived on the other side of the tracks....lol. I was into it pretty early and got a Schwinn scrambler with the tuffwheel ll. Like I said earlier....I liked to make everything "custom" (like the seller above) :lol: and had everything changed out except the frame. When I finally was thinking about a new frame.....my interest moved to a Yamaha yz125. That was sorta the end of being serious about peddling. :lol: Redline..... WOW!

Yeah, well, I didn't have that bike when I was a kid... I came upon the frame in a sorry state, and then simply hung it on a hook, and each time I stumbled upon an appropriate part, I added it to the pile, 'till I had a complete bike.

...kinda like Loader-Mutt... but a whole lot lighter... and no hydraulic fluid. :oops:
