My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

True, but not for a buck or two. But wait! I found one last week at a swap meet. $3.00. Dented. A little rust. Peaked, but, d'oh, it was the rear not the front. The search continues...
Build is done: Trek Calypso into Beach Bruiser
Here's a 1930s Elgin I've been using as a "test vehicle" for wheels I've built.
This set is 28h Ritchey mtb rims, wheelsmith db spokes, alloy nipples, cartridge bearing front, sachs automatic 2-speed rear, continental town & country tires.
Just took it for a spin; it really, really goes!
Well, no takers in its moutain bike form so I decided to put it together stock since I already painted everything. Pinstriping and new shifter and gears added. She's done and hope to find her a new home now. Not enough room in the garage!
And a before shot

You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
the bike looks real nice,,, hows that saddle working out ? BTW are you outside of the penitentury???
black bike is a 1948 Raleigh.picked that one up for free,not sure what to do with that one yet.other pics is of a c'list find for 15$,according to the serial #,its a 1953 murray,looking at the headbadge,im not so sure,looks newer.im thinking early 70's,late 60's.anyways,was a mish mash of parts when I got it as you can see by the pics.wrong seat,bars,neck,sprocket,rims.I added the correct murray parts back to it.since pics were taken,added the proper chrome fenders,& a chrome chain guard.rides beautifully
