I saw that and immediately came here to congratulate him on the exposure...

they've only covered a couple bikes, and a couple cars.... one of the bikes was mine and it wasn't even finished... the other was ben's.

ABG is really interested in the home conversion, so keep them updated on any other projects!

Congrats Ben!!!

That guy's just a geek screwing around in his garage.

Now somebody who can build a Geo Metro from a forklift - now THAT's impressive!

Hey Frodus,

Do you have a permalink on what coverage ABG did on your cycle? I would love to see it.

I also got an e-mail today from a guy who works for THE DAILY PLANET on the Discovery Channel. Does anyone watch that?

This guy said that they might want to do some sort of follow-up story on me.

How the hell did I become a poster-boy!?!?!?!
