3rd cruiser down, off for a birthday week, then into Dirt Roadsters = if you have a bike on order, please check the build list here.
I am a man of simple yet refined tastes.
So, I'm off next week to heal & kayak for my B-day, then into three dirt roadsters in a row with forks,
the three will be built in this order:
Kenton H, Russell L, John L.
And then if you are in the next five listed below drop me an e-mail and get ready, and if you have decided on a Dirt Roadster let me know NOW so I can piggy-back you onto this DR run, I an learning it's so much easier this way, to build in like groups - keeps things straight when building three very different "models."
As such, here is "the list" after the three above =
Dave R, Shabir K, Wendy N, Craig M, Michael H, Chris R, Kip M, James P, Nate T, Steve H, Paul E, Dana E, Jennifer J, Don B, Eric P, Perry D, Andrew K, John U, Jason R, David T, Pav, Mrs Pav, BT, Matt F, Derrill W, Tom F.
On hold: Stuart L, Bill S, Stabo.
Thanks all, see you after next week, drop me a line, or I will to you, will be getting painted cruisers back next week as well!

Arms feeling pretty good, getting work done.
Monday, March 16, 2015
Also, I was hoping on this trip to rest my left elbow, which has tennis elbow so bad that before the trip I could not pick up a coffee cup with my arm extended - I can paddle a boat, just not do tiny detail work with my fingers, which is, well…….pretty much what I do, right?
Yeah, forget that……..sure hope I can do that again…….maybe soon? Feeling really bad and crook from zero exercise.
So, I went in for some "dry needling" where they stick a nice sized needle into the joint over & over again to induce blood flow to the area. Damn, that hurts! Wow!
But, I think it's helping, if I can just lay off work for a few days & rest it up, which is what I'm going to do, then the upcoming few days will see me sort parts & materials for the next five builds and do general office work - if you are in the next five "upcoming builds" then drop me a line if we are not already communicating, which likely we are.
Currently, with not a fully working limb, I guess I better…….get better……spring seems to have me in it's sights for injury every year, "beware the ides of March" and all that.
As if this is not enough, a good friend of ours dropped dead just a couple days ago, when I was hurt his wife was a saint to us……….we had to go be by her side, it was just crushing.
As always, I'll power through, and get bikes a-flowing.
And here is where the projects lie:
Tod L: waiting for parts, off to paint.
Shilo P: review this cruiser, if you likey then off we go, fork blades mitered, your call on brakes.
Kenton H: good to go, fork blades mitered
Russell L: fork mostly built, other parts here for frame.
Jeff A: waiting for your Type II
Then down the line for awhile: Dave R, Shabir K, Wendy N, Craig M, Michael H, Chris R, Kip M, James P, Stuart L, Nate T, Steve H, Paul E, Dana E, Jennifer J, Don B, Eric P, Perry D, Andrew K, John U, Jason R, David T, Pav, Mrs Pav, BT, Matt F, Derrill W, Tom F.
