    Here is my latest project. I picked up vintage mini bike frame at a garage sale for $15 bucks. I plan on building it for my daughter and hitting it with the Pontiac blue paint with some pink decals.

    A small tank is a hard act to follow. :shock: Very cool.

    Anyways, here is my other project that I've been planning since 2004. Lotus Super 7 replica mid-60's. Many years of acquiring parts and planning my build, I didn't actually start building until spring of 2012. Old photo of the frame when it was about 75% complete. I've since welded in the transmission tunnel, suspension pickup points, etc. The CJ-5 is pretty much done, going to start working on the seven again.

    Oh man IRQVT if you thought Jeeps were addicting.. If I posted all my minibikes here it would take up two pages. Check out oldminibikes.com great forum I hang out there more than anyplace else on the web. Heres a bike im building from scratch right now. Going for that old wall of death bike look. Also a chain bicycle i just finished up today. The cool part about it is the drive setup. you pedal backwards for low gear and forwards for high gear.

    This is Howard Knapp

    [​IMG]

    I picked him up off one of the rat rod websites...originally the truck is from Farmington New Mexico, the fellow I bought it from had hauled it out to his place in Indiana and he bought it to flip, he hauled it out to my place on one of his runs East...currently it is under going new disc brakes, Chevy K5 Blazer rear end, radial tires too....and we will rewire it (12 volts) and put some glass back in it...hoping it will be an ok spare vehicle for the wife and me to drive...if not...might save it as an investment in the back stall of my garage...

    Nice that bird house is intresting. I do a bit of woodworking myself. I just finished up the wavy shelf. I made the knife from an old file. The sign I routed out a few years ago but im working on another larger one to hang in the garage.

    Side Projects,


    My $500 XJ, going to have a 3.5" lift and 31 inch tall tires and most all the brake lines, exhaust and other goodies replaced when it's finished:rofl: hoping to use it as a tow/recovery rig.

    Dad's old Chevy, four wheel drive conversion... maybe I do not know at this point.
    [​IMG]

    Bantam trailer. I want to at the very least repaint it and get some new tires. The long term is to build a slide in camper unit for it.[​IMG]

    And there is Lizzy, who someday will be a great coon hound.
    [​IMG]

    but if not that okay too, she makes a keen bed warmer.

    that's not counting the billion other small projects I have going on right now.
