    Let's see your 1930s bikes!

    Here's a couple of mine, pair of Elgin bikes, 1937 and 1938:

    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!"

    Don't have a 1930s bike but I sure could use a set of bars like the ones on that Hawthorne!
    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

    No one else?
    Here's a ~1938 Elgin Oriole that I've hopped-up. Came to me as a frame and fork, so not worried about originality/correctness. Built the wheels with 28h Ritchey rims, 2spd auto, cartridge front, db wheelsmith spokes, alloy nipples, Q&D paint, I re-did the vintage seat, and made the badge. Working on the chainguard next:
