Friends of TEAM SPROCKETS™, the "Secret Restoration Project" now has an official name. This endeavor from now on... shall be called..."PROJECT STROKER ACE!" Ah Ha, remember the 1978 Schwinn LeTour fix up job? Geez, funny how quickly you forget. Check it out girlfriend. Uhh hmm, it's finished. Sweet Georgia Brown, right? It wasn't easy, but I painted it up awesome and stuff and added sweet decals too.
That's right, the phrase was spawned recently during a visit to one of my local bike shops to obtain an estimate for assembly. The now infamous moniker was coined by none other than Major Drool on voice mail call back. Of course, this hot-shot also happens to be an awesome bike salesman. He could sell Lance Armstrong a 1978 Huffy Thunder Road for the next tour. Not me though, I'm an Exceptional Value Man!
Indeed, the secret project is in the final stages...or is it? It took a reluctant turn this week. As you know, I have made a delusional commitment to finish it. No expenses spared eh hem...? Let's face it; parts and labor are the KILLER of Hope, and the Concubine to Despair. It's not rational. So what can you do? For the moment, I shall... remain vigilant but cautious with stupidity.
Meanwhile... Major Drool, the savvy carpetbagger, taunts me with a GLORIOUS expensive machine – The Cannondale Synapse 3 All Carbon/2010 Ultegra! ART ON WHEELS... It is thee dream bike, literately, and a pretty penny too! "STOP MAJOR DROOL, I must complete the secret restoration project!" But, like the good sugar daddy he is, with his fancy heroin on wheels, he says to me..."Luxo-D you don't have to finish Project STROKER ACE...I got the good stuff right here." Dang he's good.
“Can I get that on layaway with 90 days interest free?”
