Default New Guy From Texas

Howdy,

I'm getting back into bikes after years (a lot of years) away. I'm finally off the road and have a garage so I'm using it to build a bike. My first bike in the 80's was an iron head basket I put together so I just couldn't see buying one off the shelf. Nothing worse that a guy pulling up next to you at a stop light riding the same bike. I guess it's like two women showing up at a party with the same dress on. Anyway....

I've got a Kraft Tech K18003 frame, short springer, an EVO and assorted other parts. I'm trying to figure out what I want it to be when it grows up and what will fit on the damned thing.
