pulling out all stops for the ultimate sound system in the mancave...

I needed to find new ride for a friend,
Jeirvine agreed to sell this really sweet TREK 420 mixte,
Everyone agreed the drops and turkey levers need to be swapped for upright bars.



I went over to Jeirvines place and it was practice night for his band, which is
one af the best bands out of Baltimore..
www.thejennifers.com

So I got to put in some wrench time with a kick arse sound system!










so top this!

anyone notice something odd about the bike?
im not done with it yet!

How many shifters do you need on that bike!?!

Looks like a cool evening, always love a live band but I've never tried to get any work done during a show/practice. Looks like you were able to stay fairly productive though.

Wow, what bars are those? Velo Orange? SUPER cool bends on them. Looks like a perfect sweep angle.

Me too! I was going to comment if someone else didn't. Nice axes, too -- I want a Jazzmaster. That one looks genuinely vintage, unless they've reissued the block inlay ones from the late 60s/70s.

And Jeff Bridges on drums, how cool is that?

Nice, mike! And mr. Irvine too. Nothing like some good. Tunes while working on the bike. I had Bob D. on, vinyl, while sawing and drilling on the moto yesterday. I hope you find a nice appreciating owner for this nice build.

Yes she came over tonight for a few minutes all full of smiles, to see it and test it shortly,
she likes the bike but not my situation....


Man I really want to resolve some things ASAP...
arghh!!!!! It's going to be quite painful cycling with her Saturday.

All four band members have day jobs.

When asked, though, only the drummer says "I'm a drummer."

Reconcile the projects already in the garage. I'll wager there are lots of very valuable pieces there.
