    Nice. Welcome to the forums.

    Who in their right mind would want a Giant?
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    Oh, how witty. Questioning my gender with "Ms.". I also like the Ad Hominem (which is also a fallacy) saying I don't pay for my own gear. All I said was the chain was slack.

    I dig the SS. My cousin had one in silver that he wouldn't let me drive until he got it just right. He got it just right and it was stolen out of his driveway the night before I was to drive it. My buddy's wife had one in Brown with the orange stripes. That SS was stolen and recovered three times before they got rid of it. Never got to drive that one, either. So what I guess I'm saying is, can I drive your car?

    just gonna be a street beater, puttin a small block together hope to have everything in and going by julyish. not set up for any class, but is on a small drag radial. 275/60/15, stock style suspension, full interior, comes in around 3800lbs with driver. i hope to run in the 10's on pump gas on spray, should run high 11's or so on nuts. nothin special, im just dyin to get it done. just need to get the motor and trans (gonna run a th400) in and run the lines and wires.

    if i had just bought these last week, i woulda probably picked up a better bike. these things are bad
