Hello MVAZcruzzer, it's always good to greet another AltBike enthusiast ! Your 'stretch' bike is a nice looking machine, did you do the work yourself?

Did you see Greenblazer's thread in AltBikes:

Phoenix Phreaks Presents...

Welcome to BF!

Thanks for the welcome EH.
Always good to find a like-minded group of peeps to commune with. Ha! As for my bike, the answer is no. [and yes] The no part is the the GT "Slick daddy" model is already a stretch that has some cool built in at the factory. The yes part is, the replacement of parts that needed an upgrade like the seat, seat post, bars, grips,rear fender struts, mirrors and probably a few more things down the stretch. It's quite orange so I see some of that going away. Also, I will check out GB thread. Thanks again. MVAZ

I know Alan would love to see as many peeps as possible show up as he can!

I hope that when you do your upgrades that you will post more photos.

Thanks for the link info. And in my neck of the woods too.

Also, most of the changes have already been made to my bicycle.

Here's a couple pics











Forgot the orange and black dice valve covers. Ha!
