Nah, if a lady isn't impressed by my usual stuff then I'm not going to try something else to do it.
Either she likes me or she doesn't.
But no, haven't met anyone. Might be nice if I did, but I know of no one that would tolerate, much less enjoy my lifestyle and the dogs and stuff.
I havent' had money for the DayGlo paint for a couple years now (more, actually), since it cost over $60 to paint DayGlo Avenger the last time, and it turned out like crap because of the RustOleum junk. (would've gotten Krylon if I could've found it around here but only one place had it in DayGlo, too far away to be worth it at the time, I thought.
If I did have the money, I'd be painting *all* the bikes that way.
Although I'd probably do it with powdercoat instead of spray paint and clearcoat, if I could find DayGlo of the right colors in that and had the big budget it would take.
So for now I picked this frame for the spare bike partly because it is a fairly bright red, compared to any other frame I have that are duller reds or greens or blues, or plain white, etc. Mostly because it is strong and light, though, and because it was a nearly-complete functioning bike when I paid the $8 for it at Goodwill.

I have ridden it in a test after building it last night, but nothing more than that so far. Still kinda needs a lot of work just on the bike part to really make it work well (cleaning/repacking all bearings, really truing the rear wheel, etc.)
looks way to clean,i will see if this is everything you put on here before congradulations are in store,how the heck is congratulations spelt.ha wow.impressive.
Oh, it needs a lot of crap before it would become a real ride for me, like lights, signals and a cargo rack and stuff, but it's just a "backup" bike in case whatever main ride I have at the time dies and I have to go somewhere RIGHT NOW, like to work. See the linked thread in the pic post above for details about it.
It'll probably also have the Fusin motor instead of the 9C, since I think I really need the 9C's pulling power for when I have to haul lots of heavy stuff, like this:viewtopic.php?f=2&t=18671&p=300489#p300489
The Fusin can pull ok, but under these heavy loads it makes noises that I am not fond of.
