    Growing up next door to Jim VanCleve in Morton I have a deep fondness for the rowdy & rare Ford's. Such amazing cars, such thought and ingenuity went into them.
    Thanks for sharing!

    This is my latest 2wheel ride. Bought it early June it's a Giant Trance2 11speed Dual suspension with 6inches of travel ,dropper seat post, hydraulic disc brakes. Awesome trail bike. Had a crash at end of June on it ended up with 2 broken ribs and bruised lung. But back in the saddle again IMG_20180924_075334.jpg

    It was my cousin's and he left it outside in the shed to go to hell and I drug it back in the shop about 5 years ago to rescue it from the rust. My last BMX bike I had in 9th and 10th grade was a PK Ripper with Bullseye 3 piece cranks, a DK neck, CW handlebars and Z rims Z 48 with Bullseye hubs.

    My brother was a sponsored Redline rider up here in BC back in the early 80s. He was ranked 3rd in BC and 6th in Canada . They would give him new frames to test out at times . We would build huge jumps and see if we could kill those frames. Most made it , some didn't.
    P.S. Our huge jumps back then would be classed as small ones to todays standards.

    I also picked up my next project last weekend, another 55 210.
    The last photo is how it will sit when completed only in black. 01414_fY21htPE5pd_600x450.jpg 00l0l_2H8VdtzmeLU_600x450.jpg 00w0w_jF11qxuIN2h_600x450.jpg 123_1.jpeg
