That's a riot Jim......he will have goggles but they will be pushed back on his head and no way will I put a scrapple sandwich in his shiftin' hand.
Although unintentional it does look a bit like him ......skinnier perhaps....hee, hee.

That looks bad a$$. A red LED in the end of the cigar would be cool.

Thanks Larry.

Good idea Ray, but I doubt seriously I could find an LED small enough, and it would be too difficult to run a fiber optic up his backbone.

Looks like I'm going to need a tad more kick-up in the rear.

I'll be using coil springs in the rear and probably a suicide front axle.

You know if you added a couple hundred pounds and a pair of goggles, you might have a Dr. Cranky clone. :D


LOL! That just cracked me up. Well, you will be happy to know that Doctor Cranky has been going out for walks to drop a few more pounds. HA!

Don, this build is coming together really well, and it's going to have lots of great details. Take your vitamins and keep it going.

Thanks Doc. I'll be using a QC and drum brakes on the rear. I have some skinny rubber for the front but I'm trying to decide whether to make some spindle mount spoke wheels with no front brakes or go with discs and 5 spoke mags...any thoughts?

I think the 5 spoke mags might be just perfect.
