And it all started on a idea october 15th 2011.........

http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t33/suicyco88/donnies%20profile%20and%20fionas%20bike/299257_2248762418382_1780973416_n.jpg
So this all started when Donnie, "AKA" gaijin, and his girlfriend Fiona were going to be in San Francisco on 10/15/11.  They flew in from Florida so Fiona could run in a  marathon.
My fiancee (Stephanie) and I met them in the City for dinner and drinks.  We immediately clicked, and hours flew with conversation, cocktails, and food.  They only had 1 night in town.  At dinner, we made plans to go to Southern California for the BMX Society show on 6/2/12.
One of the questions I asked Donnie was, "what is your dream bike?" and he got back to me later with a list. Donnie was skeptical that is could be a reality, but I convinced him that I could get it ready by the BMX show. 
After a slow start, and a lot of hunting, and with some help from Donnie (in Florida!),  I think it's going to happen.  Parts are "in the mail" and here's what we have thus far.

And, since Fiona's coming, I had to get a bike ready for her too.

Those Amrosios on the Profile are neat-o and those gold DX peds are super too. I really like the gold and yellow together.

Have fun at the show.

Dude, I can't even begin to thank you enough.  I planned this as a multi year project and you made it happen in 6 months.  I can't wait to give you a big squeezey hug (no homo tongue).  You and Steph kick so much ass there should be a law against it. 

I was unsure of the gold pedals from the outset, and I don't think I'll be taking them home.  I think chrome Hutch pedals belong on there.  For the most part, I'm not a fan of gold on yellow, but the hubs look awesome.

See ya in 3 days (!!!!) and hopefully the decals will arrive before we take off for LA.
