Never could afford new things when I was a kid. So I started making them. Made my first skateboard out of a plank of walnut. Used a wood rasp. Didn't have much of a palm after that. First bicycle was a home made "speed bike". No brakes and motorcycle shocks up front. Made my own helmet for it too. Not much of a helmet. It fell off halfway down the hill. Drove a moped to school. A Puch. Took off the muffler because it made a cool put-put sound at idle. Sounded like crap at full throttle though. Metalshop in High School!! Best class ever. Sand cast my own bicycle brakes from a wood pattern. Copied a set of campagnolo's. Never did work very well. I guess that's why campi's are forged. Bought a 1971 Plymouth Twister in Hawaii during my stint in the Navy. Lime green interior, and Factory Metal flake green paint with black stripes. Sold it in the States to pay for art school. Now I create graphics for Military Units.
