Oh damn!!! That's the one in looking for. All I have left on my list is an 83 cruiser, Ritchies red predator and a tc or yo pro. I love those 89 flats too, dang!

There was a flurry of TC framesets on eBay earlier this year.  I really wanted to jump on one but with the project I have in mind, I was being too stupid and particular about welds.  Wish I just grabbed one.

I love those...I think they are the most simple and uncomplicated of the freeform frames.


I can switch out your Boa bolts if you have the parts and don't want to do it yourself.  Hit me up.

Right on, the TC is definitely rad. I wish I'd grabbed one up too, I found one in NC, the green and white, all original but the guy sold it out from under me hours before I came to pick it up. Probably got an offer for more $ or something. Anyway, one will come up some day. smile

My son and I went on an after-dinner cruise. The weather has been awesome.
Much thanks to mcman for the stem pad.

Nice, I just got one from VRAD69... It should be here at the beginning of next week... We should build them at the same time and post here... Kind of like a 1 on 1 build-off... I think we could start something with that idea... big_smile

I've seen the royal blue quarter flash also, there's one on eBay for more than it's worth I'm sure.

I think that's a race f/f but it would be hard to say which one exactly. As far as I know, the BG never had the flared tubing up front.
