Thought it would be fun to post some pics from a couple of my motorcycle projects. My 1974 Honda cb200 and my beloved 1997 Ducati 900ss. Love these machines but I sold them to support my frame building......On day I will be motorized again!

Hey man.. Im definitely a fan. Your bikes are sweet even dem motos.. Im diggin the hondas. Im in Clayton, Ga (north east corner) have built a few mountain bikes since there are more dirt roads and trails here than pavement. My buddy Brian who helps put the south east bike expo on told me about you two years ago and its cool to see someone not too far away gettin her done. I have been on the long and windy road of frame building and it looks like you have put in a long hard pull.... enjoy the break away bro and Im gonna come see you at some point.
There are so many great frame options out there, but few with a person like you behind the torch. That's what makes your bikes cool to me. You can ride with the best and you are a pleasure to be around. The bikes are really beautiful. Sorry I couldn't stick around for your session. I missed out big time.
Just got an email from Jay in Australia.....
Bloody computers, I killed yet another PC! Now back on a Mac, hopefully the last time I have to buy another!
Anyhow, I lost most of the photos I took a few weeks back but took some fresh ones just before I traveled interstate for the first 2 National CX races.
Crazy lineup, plenty of Australian MTB national champs, Aust Road Race champs and Robbie McEwen! I'm certainly not in their league but I lasted the full hour, finishing on the same lap, a first for me.
As expected the bike was awesome! So well balanced and man does it pop! Check the pic from race 2.
3 zip files coming with the plenty more, sure's there's a few you can use.
Lost you last email but I remember you mentioning you went riding with Richard Sachs, nice!! That's some pretty serious props.

Is it coincidence or do I see some bmx influence in your work? The seat tube clamp looks similar to what Eastern bikes do on there Grim Reaper, and that gusset you run to connect top and downtube reminds me of the old National Pro bmx race bikes.

That was a lot of shoveling dirt back them. I think that's why my elbows hurt today!
Opened up FB and saw this, pretty cool!
So long sign shops. No more 3-4 day waits, mistakes, regular vinyl when I asked for low tack vinyl, art fees and then they close up shop and you lose your art work you paid a premium for!
