How cool is that!

I'm excited for you Jill, that is one hellofa start!
Whats the year and serial number?

Now...can you get it built by Sea Otter? :D

Does this mean the bamboo is safe? ;)
Ha! The bamboo will NEVER be safe. I love that bike. But I do really like my new bike. Mike thinks it's an 85 or 86; he remembers riding with the original owner right about that time. I'm having a hard time reading the serial number, but it looks like SM090 or SM890. I'd love to get it built before Sea Otter...but I've got 2 other bikes to try to build before we leave on Tuesday, so we'll see. :D

I have a feeling it'll be done by SOC.

Dare I say...dirt drops? :)

We'll see....

Dirt drops....I haven't decided yet if I want to run flat bars or drops. The idea of drops in the dirt sort of freaks me out a little bit, but we'll see. I guess I need to figure that out pretty quick, eh?!?

It will probably be easier and faster to set it up with flat bars initially.
