Not bad considering you are new.

Do you write in code, or do you use WYSIWYG editors?

If you use code, I have some good resources for you.

I used the half and half method on this one.... I do use code and I also use script editors. Depends on the amount of time I have and what I'm trying to do. Tripod is slow so I didn't get everything edited out so this will be a page in the process
Thanks
Troy

Go to Amazon.com and look for a book called, "The Complete Idiot'* Guide to Buidling Web Pages" or something like that. It was the first HTML book I got when I started building sites. Not only does it teach you code pretty well, it will also help you make pretty decent designs.

How long have you been doing this for?

I've been doing webpages for about 4 years now. I made on for my *-10 Lowrider hence Jacksonlowrider. I made one up for a friend, one for a youth football league here in Jackson this one and a few pic pages for friends. I by no means an a pro but I do have the basics and some advanced html coding skills under my belt.

Ok, two things. First, you're revving WAY past redline. You acccidentally bought a ricer tach. Second, email [email protected] for lowering springs. Looks great!

You should consider posting a link to www.bonnevilleattitude.com and www.angryducktofuracing.com. These are two other resources for Bonneville owners.

Nice start!

First off let me say "Ye have little faith " especialy for a guy that has the last name of a bird LOL LOL LOL sorry WillWREN. So are you saying a cheap tach doesn't redline??????

Consider the links added I don't want to show any type of favoritism. The site is supposed to be open for any and all types of links and pictures pertaining to Bonnies. I will add them real soon I promise

speedyguy
Thanks I appreciate it. I'll be spending my hard earned $$$$ with you guys real soon I hope


Allmachtige
I have yet to use word pad, note pad or even front page for my web pages. I'll admit I use script editors to get started but I use open text coding for large amounts my pages. I wish I had the time to really sit down and go crazy with coding but usually I only have a couple hours a day to play on the web.

Thanks you all I appreciate all your impute
