Trying, too many irons in the fire right now.
Just stripped a Redine expert for my youngest, sanding and more sanding. looks like the tubes went through an automated wire cleaner before the frame was built. Had to start at 180 grit. Hopefully finish it this week, then swap some parts on that Barcode so it can really ride it. Moto bike project, then maybe the Slammer. Have a 95 Performer on the docket as well. and others.... both my girls play club softball, so that takes up a lot of my time, honey-do list never ends, fixing stuff for friends and family, working 50 hours a week. Still manage to ride almost every night, my little time for myself. I haven't ridden that Slammer in a decade now, makes me sad.

Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

I know how you feel dude. I've got a Huffy in bits, five bikes to reassemble, 70% of a Specialized and a T1 to finish.

I'm seriously not buying nothing else until a huge chunk is done.

Oh. And I've an attic to skin out in ply also lol.

The T1 is my nice clean slow build. I just nibble whenever I feel like it smile

Pretty accurate lately.  I rode the Quad until I got the Block's Flyer. Rode the Big Ripper once before winter hit and then I had a health scare that I'm just now getting to where I can do stuff again. Blood pressure is no joke!  Picked up the I'm in trade and have rode it twice before realizing that I couldn't stand the bars. The skateboards in the back are nearly flawless. The Ray Barber Hydrant was ridden twice in May. Once when I was drunk from too many birthday shots, I could barely stand on it, but I still Ollie's, and then a week later after a couple of beers to prove I could ride to my girlfriend.  Forty two and I did great considering I was wearing Sanuk shoes, but a simple manual took me out when my foot shifted in my shoe. I did prove I could still fall correctly.  Went over the nose and rolled right to my feet with no damage. lol

Mystery S&M frame that was stripped at some point.

https://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=790176

Started polishing it months ago and jumping back on the project now.

Instead of doing a complete polish job, I'm thinking a "signs of use" polish that wouldve naturally occured.http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/255869/20190720_2105595d33d97e1d.jpg

Wicked cool man. So much for that being a slow build. Really like those levers, and the bars, and the frame, and the seat, and the cables, and the …….

It was slow for me. Effing thing really pushed me to quitting. So many parts I ordered were incorrect or just didn't fit. I had to modify the gyro tabs, gyro cables, adjusters for the cables for the gyro were reverse threaded (WTF?) so I had to cut them off, then cut off and slot some from another set of cables. Stem cap did not fit etc etc etc. I'm scared of bloody touching it now ! though I do concede it's by far my favourite bike.

Yeah, some all but build themselves, some not so much. I'd say my favorite of yours as well.smile

Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

Yeah new school for sure. Everything else is lolprice.

Saw a battered warpig frame the other day... Yours for £450. Yeah, I don't think so.....

Paid £70 for my STA frame and £100 flat for my Ruben with 99% of the paint stripped for me.
