First off I need to apologize for all those e mails, blog comments, phone calls & texts that have gone unanswered over the past 6 or 8 weeks. In my defense I've spent every long waking hour on either Bench*Mark or this bike. This bike has been an on & off build for exactly 2.5 years and not only did I want to ride it but I thought the Born Free show would be the kick in the ass I needed to get it done. Over the past few weeks I think I threw in the towel twice, threw a part across the parking lot once, got home before 11pm 3 times, Blah, Blah, Blah.
Well we made it and this morning after we got the Bolts Action crew on the road to Baja I rolled it out & shot a few quick photos.
SO Many People had a hand in on this bike, I am truly grateful to everyone who helped!
First and foremost my partner in Bench*Mark, Great Friend and all around good person, Patrick McCormack, Thank You Pat!
