    Hello, I just finished building a replica car last September. It's a 1906 Straight dash Oldsmobile Model B. I tried to upload a photo, but i'm not sure I did it correctly. I worked on the Oldsmobile for 2-1/2 years. Now that it is finished (except for building a surrey top for it) I wanted to start another project.

    So a while back I came across your website & I am hooked. I will build a bike like Houghmade's. I think it is the neatest thing I have ever seen. I have read many post and think all my initial questions have been answered. There are lots of talented people on this site. I am in Kentucky and in my earlier days I rode a 10 speed on many long trips until I had a small meeting with a big truck. So I took to the ditch (20 ft down) and now I dont ride due to banged up knees. The motorized option seems like a great fit for me now.

    This hobby is always open to improvements and innovations. Somebody comes up with an idea that works, and whooola, they've started a fad.

    I'm sure you'll add to the community expertise pretty quick.

    That photo uploaded fine from this point of view. What a neat car. I knew that Ransom Olds got into the game early, but seeing a tiller steered car was a surprise. Though maybe it shouldn't have been. Still, I was reminded of something like a Duryea or the very, very early Daimlers.
