Looking good. Bet your students are eager to get to class. Keep culatvating the young minds and hands. This Country needs more people that can work with their minds ,hands and build something that your peers go WOW. The feeling that you can do something productive is a powerfull thing . Good for you Teach.

that must give a satisfacting feeling ,to teach kids how to build bikes like that
in the mean time
if only 1 out of the 100 students got the feel for this old iron ,you can be sure that long time friends are made and that choppers or bobbers will be here for decades
