Hey fellas! Just an intro.... My name is Chad Townsend I am 36 and a conceptual artist for Animation and Video games. I am basically hired to design what games and shows look like and then other artists go and take my designs and create productions based off of them. my work can be seen here www.chadtownsend.com I just built my first bike over the past couple weekends and made a few mistakes. (Electra Cruiser) But this forum provided me many answers to the problems I have had. I can't say enough how excited I am to take this on as not only a means of tooling around town (Austin TX) but as a cool hobby. I've been very inspired by all the work that everyone here has done and look forward to my next bike. which I would like to build off of a Macargi Phantom or Mustang. Take care -Chad T.
