Well done John , well deserved  :4_17_5:

Attention to detail and the amount of time and effort you put into it is a credit to you mate.

It's as mad as a box of frogs but it's one hell of a cool bike  :coolsmiley:

You may think this as even more crazy   :uglystupid2: I was thinking today and I need to stop doing it :LolLolLolLol: (I love Z'ds) remove the wheels complete (keep them of course) and purchase 2 x schwinn 170 hubs and lace them to a couple of NOS z-rims so it looks like it's on nylon skinnies and the angle of the spokes from the hubs will really show off the spokes.    :coolsmiley:  I wonder  :chin:

 


Thank you everyone on RAD for your support on this project.
The breakdown, measurements and build are now on retro-goose.com in the projects section.

I loved reading thread...it was like a metal work lesson from school, great.

Wondering of someone at SE has seen it and been influenced...

When I was born, the world was a far simpler place.
It was all just cops and robbers.
And BMX.
