TRV .. I was just wondering why you named your ride " The Bride " ? If it's anything like my "Bride" I only ever get to ride her when she's in the mood .

Perhaps the Bride of Skeletor ( Heman and the Masters of the Universe )

the bride
my story. gather around kids. this is a long one...
when building the project (no name at the time) the girl i am with were talking about having a Halloween wedding. the neighbor has a huge yard. i am going to be the monster (Frankenstein's) and the wife to be is going to be the bride.
all the friends that were invited was to wear villagers clothing carrying pick forks and fire. i was to build a cardboard castle where we would stand to do our vowels.

at the time of the wedding planning i became friends with drfrankstine (a member of vtf) his bike is named frank and has the monster on each side of the gas tank.
during our talks i told him if i build the bride bike could he bring frank to the wedding. i would sit on frank and the wife would sit on the bride. he said he would be honored.

so the plans of the bride was going like this..
smooth the gas tank. spray it all black with the white streaks along the side. web the forks in a tan webbing and some wraps. (to look like arms) web the wheel spokes (front and rear). have the front exhaust pipe on the right and wrap it in tan wrapping. then wrap barb wire around that. flip the rear exhaust pipe to be on the left side. wrap in tan wrapping and barb wire. then weld feet at the tail pipes. the rest of the bikes body would be black with webbing.

all of this was being done until it took 2 years to get the gas tank done. in the time of waiting for the tank. i was trying to get the back bone titled with no luck. then i got a complete bike with the 2 gas tanks. then i traded a stock rear fender for the fender i have on her now. she took a whole new look that i wasnt even trying to get.
i have been riding her for about a year and my smoothed out tank finally showed up. i also have a titled back bone. so project #3 just maybe the real bride.. undecided at this moment. the girlfriend (i like to call the wife. after all we been together for 20 years) ruptured her lower back disc and riding a bike maybe out for her.
so we never got married and the real bride was never built.
told you it was long :bg: .........dan
