    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Vintage SS Im building

    Im building this Univega up as a SS to replace the Browning, the Browning was way to tall for me so I sold it, this one is the perfect size and similiar to the Browning so Im pretty sure itll ride nice! I hacked the RD hanger off as it was cracked and the threads were stripped out, anyways tell me what you guys think about it so far.



















    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    nice - i like the head badge and chromed-end fork, it'll turn out great. i'm partial to cross brake levers though (instead of those hood ones, but that's just me).

    He probably wants to keep a vintage feel. Cross levers are not at all vintage.

    One thing I always think of that vintage bikes always have are the very long brake cables jutting out of the top of the hoods.

    i'm most intrigued by the dolce and gabbana glasses case contrasted with the hanging miniature chairs on the wall.

    everything in your pictures, from the dozens of blank cds to what i'm guessing is a *** holster to the rows of mysterious packaged items makes me want to gently nudge your project bike out of the way for a clearer look.

    granted, i'm really drunk right now, but still.

    Ill have to admt that it does look a bit strange but I do assure you that its only because Im "a bit strange" nothing to do with anything illegal though. by the way, those are dozens of blank cds, a *** holster and rows of mysterious packaged items. and the Dolce and Gabbana glasses case contrasted with the hanging miniature chairs on the wall intrigues me too! you notice all this but fail to see the cat sleeping peacefully on the shelf of the wooden cabinet in pic # 7.
