cool

dont supose the redneck is blue is it ?

i think itl end up black , i like the thought of getting some gold wheels for it 8) , i had a bar pad but foolishly gave it to a mate to put on his s&m cruiser :roll: but i still have the stem pad ( which doesnt fit over 1 1/8 ) strangely its one item i cant remember coming into my posession , usually i can remember where i bought or from whom but not the year . the pad seems to have just appeared :lol: its one of those things id remember someone owning before me or at the least acquiring it :?

the paint is reallllly badly done , it has runs and its thin in areas

the gold frame is my terrible one scott malyon signature and the red one in the other corner is my azusa cruiser

id like to get hold of a challenger but i dont really need that many bmxs :lol: so either the terrible one or dirtbike will get used for trails/racing

this makes me want to have gold wheels

Image

but its gotta be black

Image

Image

but white looks good too :?

Boggled! Have you really only been here a month?! :o

Wow.

been keen to have a look at your bikes for a while, I got back into bikes in like 2002, 2003 and probably should have got a DMR over my heavy duty style XL Dr Jekylls in hind sight. nice bikes there and nice parts sharing, My midskool BMX is hidden deep in the BMX section, posted up when I joined but noone posted back! :lol:

yeah i seem to have a habit of buying frames :oops: and not enough of the components to make them usable without parting out one of my other steeds :lol:

its always been like that though , is not like you can ride more than one at a time afterall :lol:

it does my nut in how many parts arnt compatible with others . for instance among the many parts the cruiser needs is wheels . i have a hub , but its a 36 and i have a rim but its 32 . the rim is laced to a hub already but that hub is 135mm and the cruiser needs 120mm :lol:
