Crank The Shield is some number of hours away, it would be pointless for me to put the differential into numbers as I just can’t seem to wrap my head around the mathematics of time – 18hrs maybe???
Suffice it to say, it is now here and when it is then there (10:00hrs September 19, 2008) Team Misfit Psycles will begin the surgical dismantling of all two-wheeled comers…actually, unless this article self destructs it is entirely possible that you, or someone you love, could end up reading it AFTER the race has begun…that would be unfortunate and make a countdown impossible.
What of the polished vintage diSSent of doom?
Say, say what?
Kick it, olde school.
Since we are speaking about all things beautiful…a commemorative decal was produced DESIGNED for the EIGHT* diSSents that will be tackling the shield this year;
* EIGHT diSSents in ONE more then what demolished the Rockies way back in 2007.
Intended as a triple-layer decal (considered by many in Psycledom to be the Big Mac of decals, without the thumb print in the bun), while Mac would be complicated for most, it is something that can easily be achieved in the vinyl plotting chamber of the Misfit Psycles Corporation.
Apparently, this decal was entirely too complicated for someone utilizing mediocre (at best) photoshoppe skills in full blown illustrator. While strong enough to build it up my powers were too weak to rip it apart.
Many, many hours were invested in this Decaldom Debacle.
Targeted production of 20units was hacked to 12 then to 4 and ultimately, just THIS one.
Yes, you may not have one.
$150.00 if they were au vendre.
Actually buy the whole damn bike if you want…I’ll be done with it Sunday afternoon…first $2000 wins.
No I don’t care that it’s soon to be a collectors item.
Make it $2500.
Time to pack.
