This is one of my art pieces.  A local annual show. You pay $20, they provide a 2x2' square of 3/4" plywood. Each year has a different theme.  I named my entry "Cateye".  You can see the same reflectors.  All the entries are displayed in public for the rest of the summer.

Agree Oscar, and well done to you Rick for creating that Cat Eye.  Very cool!
Break, break:
Finally got hold of the seller of the mid-70s Gran Sport that I linked here earlier on Craigslist.  Will travel an hour's drive north of Omaha this Friday to (hopefully) pick her up!

Will do Oscar.  I picked up the bike around noon today.  I'll post a separate write-up and photos under a new topic later today...I stole your thread too much already!
Break - break:
My son went to grad school in KC...he lives in Wichita now, but went to a lot of Royals games with him at the 'K' when he had some time off.

Cool! The K , I had many expensive cold ones there, in the mid 70's my dad took my brother and I to many games to watch George Brett hit the ball all over the park. Your bike looks very nice, looks like we have the same taste in bikes.
