I have joined forces with 2 other individuals, Josh and Becca, to make my Art/Bike show idea happen...and it has become much larger than I could have ever imagined.
Becca has been setting up a stand alone gallery for Champaign-Urbana, IL's "Boneyard Arts Festival" for at least the past handful of years. When I have been able to attend its always been cool work, stuff that's a bit left of center compared to what the rest of the community is showing during this citywide event.
When I mentioned the Art/Bike show idea to my buddy Josh, who's art I wanted in my show, he said "we've gotta talk". He and Becca were already in cahoots, setting up a show space for this years B.A.F. event, and when I mentioned what I wanted to do, they invited me to join their efforts.
The three of us met up one night about a month or so ago and agreed we were all the same page.
this is also the 10th Anniversary of the B.A.F. so the addition of the homebuilt bikes will be a fresh added attraction to their ongoing efforts.
The dates are April 19-22, 2012.
Last week we secured a building as well!
Right downtown in the heart of what's happening.
I'll continue to post updates here as they transpire.
Working on "In no Mood's" konged Cb750 last night and realized that the splined tube where the rear brake shaft resides has been removed from this frame! Doh! Now we're on the hunt for that section from a stock frame so we can graft it back on....he's not gonna run a front brake, and he doesn't wanna "flintstone" it!!! Just a minor set back.
Update: It turns out the frame is an "F", which means its a SuperSport frame. They didn't have that brake section, but rather a bolt on mount for the rear brake pedal...well anyhow, the mounts for the bolt on are gone too...so we're gonna still have to weld on a new mount.
