The Beginning Of "The Fish Bike"
« on: Feb 20, 2012, 23:34:10 »
Luck has served me well so far....Last Time it actually Snowed was the Day I Traded my Snow blower for a 1982 Kawasaki Kz750 (carbs & front brake Frozen) ..... a week or so of troubleshooting the caliper and waiting for the new carbs to come in the mail ......TONIGHT I AWAKENED THE BEAST.......Soo She runs.......AND Since Luck has been Serving me this well she decided to also serve me One "BRAND NEW" english Wheel on craigslist for $250 .....(Oh craigslist why are you sooo good to me???)

I have this idea in my head ....one random day.... of a fish bike so i write it down not the best picture ever but a good start

now that I have some 18gauge flat steel, shears, English Wheeler Dealer, a hammer, pillow case full of sand (thanks mom), and a small table made of 3 tires and a piece of wood.....It's time to start .........Here is where i'm at if all goes well i should be doing a bit of welding tomorrow
