If you're new to bikes, you might want to stick to a pretty conventional job out of the gate. "This looks cool" and "this is unrideable" often go hand in hand in the two-wheeled world.

Thank you for the welcome guys.

HiDesert - I think this is going to be a simple chop/bob but the roller does need quite a bit of work so I will take it down and work my way up. I find form and function over the "cool". I do know there is a middle ground but who wants to just look at a cool bike? I would rather ride one!

Catenaccio - I am hoping so. K.I.S.S. is the way I am going to go about this bike.

Phil
