    Judging by the view of the wretched Tacony-Palmyra Bridge in the background of the first pic, I'm wager that ilikebikes is in NE Phila, which is kinda like a gigantic, outdoors penitentiary in and of itself. Barbed wire is ubiquitous, in those parts.

    Its the old Armory on State road. I don't know why surreal is making it out to be a dump. BTW, New Jersey has 108 toxic waste dumps. Which is the most in any one state in the nation. Now that's what I call a dump.

    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

    Not a dump; a gigantic outdoor penitentiary. there's a distinction there..... I actually kinda like the NE, except that Roosevelt Blvd is the worst thing ever.

    As for the Tac-Pal Bridge: I have no love for that thing. Been caught on the wrong side of the drawbridge too many times....But it's a tempting route, due to lower tolls....

    I also wouldn't want to invite any NJ/Phila comparisons, b/c
    #1- NJ, despite some charming aspects, is a fairly gross/crowded/unpleasant place (certainly, one might argue that it's a "dump", but I prefer to think of it as a collection of small, conjoined dumps...)
    #2- Phila is the Capitol of South Jersey, anyway.

    Do you know ANYone, ANYwhere, with a stomach for the Blvd? Driving it is one thing; I can't imagine it's fun to ride on/near, plus it is a contender for the Most Pedestrian Fatalities per Mile "award". I've driven on it many times, and somehow never had an accident. But, it's a white knuckle ride, even for those of us who drive it routinely...

    Not bad! The seat is high enough too which I've been telling the folks in the RatFink/Electra thread needed to be done. One question though.

    Will a motorcycle gas tank really fit in there and what about a 70-125cc? THAT one doesn't seem likely.

    And welcome to Bike Forums!

    phpFUvec8PM.jpg My 1987 Murray Monterey. I like the larger, stretched frame. I plan to get a new seat and somehow have a custom seat post made. I bent this one.

    Just brought this home today. I just sort of messed around with it today and checked out parts sources.
    1988 Peugeot PY-10/P Frankenbike, 1994 Diamondback "Response Elite" MTB, 2002 Performance M201 MTB and a 1983 SR road bike that has become my favorite ride. At least for now.
