Thanks for the really kind words!  I was already doing it for myself and figured it should be shared.  If you or anyone else has has any suggestions please comment or PM me.  I know it can be improved and there is a lot more content to be added that I just haven't found.

Wow Kelly, you actually restored the "BMX Restoration" forum.  You also made the bmx building lives of those who reads this post much, much easier.  Great job as always.

Thank you (and all the other contributors) for your great threads.  Organizing them was relatively simple, the wealth of knowledge shared here is priceless.  Okay, enough MasterCard commercial...
