....most excellent SJ......you've got my eyes a-goggling now.......o_O
LOL... thanx, Frank! It was truly a labor of love that taxed this ol' man's patience nearly to it's limit!
Like most endeavors, it wasn't nearly as easy as I imagined it would be, & it's extremely fragile,
so don't look too hard or it may break! :LOL:

Yes, nothing but a picture of a cat making fun of us all with the text over... "Photo not found. Click for photos".

Something like this would fit well in our Builder's Gallery though!
My goal was to have more completd bikes there and less in the main forum.

IDK, Paul. I posted 10 pics, & they all show up on my screen.
It all looks good from here, so IDK.

Feel free to put it in there if you like, Brad.

Also, hope it's okay that I posted this many pics,
since they're all being hosted off-site.

Ok, this may be my own fault. I think I moved the hosted images into another folder after posting them.
I'm gonna re-post them & see if it fixes the problem.

Most excellent!!
Those Win95 install CDs make great aerodynamic rims.
Chain might rub a bit though! Brad
Who's the posh one then Win 95 came on 13 floppies and MS Office 97 Professional came on 45 floppies !

A wholes days work !!!

IIRC first O/S they did you didn't have to load DOS 6.2 a further 3 floppies before the install ?

Ok, so the pics issue WAS my fault after all! Big dummy me, while organizing my
pics on the hosting site, moved the pics into another folder, breaking all the links.
It didn't occur to me till several people said they couldn't see the pics. Then I realized what I had done.

Anyway, thanx for the props, guys! Worked hard on this
stupid little thing, & it was both, trying AND rewarding! :)

Oh yeah, I do remember loading 6.22 and win 3.11 on disk.
By disk 5 or 6 you were dreading that stepper sound... bzzzt, bzzzt, bzzzt, followed by "Sector not found reading Drive A:\"
An hour later using chkdsk and maybe you were lucky enough to continue!

I actually enjoyed the 6.22 / 286 DX days!
Coding in Turbo Pascal and linking to assembly done in Debug.
This is why I am now using my VIC-20 and coding in 6502 assembly on my free Sundays!

Speaking of being old, were you around in the days of 8088 and RLL drive controllers?
Popping in SRAM to get up to that magical 640K fully expanded!
