Here is a pic of my 62 JC Higgins Flightliner. It started out pretty stock. I have changed out the bars (actually change them about every week depending on the ride). This week was the sewer ride so I needed to be able to get down real low. I have also added a 4 speed hub and some wide tires. Yes is took some doing to true them up so they would not rub, and yes it weights about 6000 pounds...
Next I plan to get all of the lights working with some LEDs and decrease the crack tooth count for a more relaxed ride.
We ride every Sunday. Leave around 4 PM from Recycled bike shop on 26th and South Street, Lincoln, NE. Last week we rode the sewers, drank some beer, ate some dogs, and had a nice backyard trash can fire.
