DrilliumDude is taking a break - focusing on university - BFing it a little less.

Life can be full (hopefully).
The bike lives but we all need balance.

I'll volunteer to be the one to revive this thread in 2021. Anyone for 2023?

These days, I am afraid to ask. Unfortunately, this song comes to mind when I see a thread like this.

Jesus, the last time I heard that song was on WNEW-FM about 2AM fleeing from a street race in Yonkers.

If you want to hear stuff like that again, tune in to WNRN Les Temps Perdu on Sundays from noon to 2. That station has some great programs.

I'm starting to feel guilty regarding the Rossin and PX-10 frames that have been sitting since '14, waiting for me to start digging up parts and putting them back on the road - finally.
Jeezus, I wrote that on 24 May 17?!?!?!

For the record, I'm finally back riding regularly (cold weather, I'm keeping myself to 10 mile stretches on the Raleigh Tourist in street clothes, will get the serious road bikes and funny clothes out in about 6-8 weeks); I FINALLY have the shop put to where I want it to be, and tomorrow is my first day in the shop where I start working on the last four years worth of backlogged projects.

Boy, it's been a long, slow trip. What I've got isn't quite as nice as the shop I had in Montpelier: I have to share the garage at night with the wife's car, and it's not the dedicated, tight, insulated building that I used to have, but it'll work just fine. I'm finally retiring from the Honda/Yamaha/Can-Am dealership at the end of March (been down to three days a week for the past couple of years), so Syke's Cyclery is going to reopen as something resembling full time once I'm retired. Well, full time, as long as I don't have a baseball game that afternoon. And start doing pre-1950 restorations as I find the bikes to work on. Currently doing a 40's-something Rollfast girls middleweight just to get my chops up. Figure it'll be a money loser, but I need the challenge and learning experience.

Most importantly, the PX-10 and Rossin RL are finally coming off the barn wall - initial parts have been sourced, so something finally going to get done with them after five years.

Damn, it feels good to be back!

Last I heard, he was working as a Realtor with his wife in the Troy, Mi area. He had all the bikes he needed and could find time to ride. Plus he was into vintage guitars.
