    Too many to list. Raleigh carbon racer (17 lbs.) and fast to a '37 Columbia (17 lbs. wheels alone) Even an Aerocycle (not ridable yet), love the middleweights too.

    A new Wald fender just wouldn't be right for this 60's Roadmaster. I'll find an appropriate dented, rusty thing at a swap meet someday - maybe for a buck or two.

    Love the clean look!

    I just received a Wald low-rise cruiser bar and those Oury grips in the mail a few days ago; I'm hoping to build a cheap Takara Kabuto up to something similar (after a fork swap + a few other mods).

    Well-done!

    I like that. The mustache bars are a nice touch. What's the frame?

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

    Nonsense. New Wald fenders can/do become dented and rusty in rather short order.

    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...

    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

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    My latest. All I had to do was add the new saddle, (pictured) new bars and grips, (pictured) a new upper bearing race, a new/smaller chrome bell, and a good cleaning! Not that it was all that dirty, just wanted to kill some surface rust while keeping it looking rustic!


















    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

    I wish you were closer. I like the Calypso, they go for around $200 or less in my area (a few hundred miles north of you).
