Nice build. Looks like it's going to be a great ride. BTW, I find "old fogies" a bit offensive.

Fogy \Fo"gy\, n.; pl. Fogies.
A dull old fellow; a person behind the times,
over-conservative, or slow; -- usually preceded by old.

Like I said, nice build. Ought to be a great ride.

Cool!

Lot of peeps don't understand how the sweet vintage bikes are picked way more than the latest and the greatest to ride. Not only that, IMO, the vintage bikes got more on looks than the latest and the greatest too. Hope I don't start anything!

Anyway, you on a roll!!

Nice build. I like the dings. (Seriously, not being sarcastic). Not sure how you can ride with the bar in that position but to each his own. BTW "old fogies" don't build bikes; nor do they ride bikes. Don't be so self-deprecating, but if you must, keep me out of it.
