They rarely delete a thread, unless it has violated some policy. Could be the type bike you built, or some other violation. If you read the stickies, you can usually find out why, just in case the powers to be, don't give you a reason. I have found that they are pretty lenient on some things, but harsh on others. It is only our site, to "use" as they see fit. If they let anything go, this would be like other sites that don't keep it as the original plan called for. Just my 02's worth. I am just another member, who does his best NOT to post anything out of line, and even I screw that up every now and then. Usually from not thinking, before I am typing.
