    Mark,

    It's good to see you regularly posting again! Did a computer fairy stop at your house?

    Your daughter is adorable on her vintage ride! Way to go by instilling a keen eye for the classics at such an early age. Now they need that chopper you made way back in your school days! Time to create a new one.

    Excellent. Looks like they're on the road to full sized vintage (and probably recumbents too).

    My first bike was a Phillips Pilot, same as the Mountie. Purchased when I was 4, they got me a girls bike. Redeeming feature is it was blue. Found out later that in England, the boy's school uniform color was Red, and the girl's got Blue, so that's why the color separation.

    Fast forward 12 years, the Mountie was gone, I bought my younger sister a Raleigh Mountie, now in solid blue, no flamboyant. She still has it, and my daughter will be the new owner of it one day.

    My current battle is to locate a bike for my son, he has outgrown the 16" wheeled "BMX" bike and now looking for a 20" bike... what dismal choices, most don't have enough steering trail, the handbrakes are too hard to grab, and the levers too big, I could go on.

    I even surfed ebay looking for a "mountie" type, not yet, but hopefully... but he wants it black so stay tuned.

    Thanks PB, it's nice to be out of that funk and back to the Forums (and painting).

    It's a fairie tale.
    Sunday night at midnight, it turns back into a pumpkin!
    (it's another school "loaner" that goes back Monday)

    The wife & I were almost on a new permanent fix when the car died. BIGtime.
    Finally found a neighbor to fix it. For "only" $3,500!
    (had non-dealership quotes from $4,500-$6,000+) It's a '91 Accord w/165,000 miles.

    So after Sunday, I'll be gone again until funds are restored. But I'll be able to get to my shop safely!
    No more axle rattle at 60, no more viscious shake when I hit the brakes, a clutch that doesn't slip when I gas it.
    Got it back last night and did a test drive. Got up to 110 with NO shake, rattle or roll. And it stops on a dime with NO eyeball jarring shimmy.
    Didn't try a burnout as the tires are new, but it sure feels like a whole new car!

    Now I'm going to get in it, and head to the shop.

    But he's been eyeing the Colnago, wanting to know if they make kids sized bikes like THAT one!

    All 4 of the kids LOVE the Greenspeed GTX trike! Even if 3 out the 4 can't actually reach the pedals.

    But they CAN steer & brake, so they have a blast coasting down the block.

    Dr. D-

    You should be on the lookout for a Mattel X-15 Varoom-Cycle, a recumbent trike with REAR wheel steering via a joystick.

    Be the life of the party, amaze your friends.

    When I was a kid they were VERY cool.

    Looks like a future street luger.

    Should you tell Merlin that they did make kid-sized bikes like the Colnago? He seems bright enough that he'll eventually find out even if you don't. (father's dilemma).

    My twisted sense of humor.
    (and I only forgot one lousy little appostrafe)
    or maybe the word "the" before the number.

    Actually, I work for the FBI and am trying to route out pedophiles on the internet.
    If you are reading this thread, your name is now on "the list"!




    Gotcha!!

    DR. D,

    I've been looking for the picture of the Jr. Racer Colin Laing I had, that ended up going to a neighbor.

    Quick search, and here's the thread:
    Colin Laing Custom Junior Racer

    Want me to see if they want to sell it when I return to AZ? I'm not sure they would, all depends if the younger brother would ride a pink bike. I think that was your issue with it, too, IIRC.

    Glad the Mountie is getting good use, really wish you would have bought the Colian when it was available, too. It was/is a pretty cool Jr. Racer.

    Best,

    John

    Not ME! I can FIX that kind of problem, no problem!

    When I got the Mountie, I didn't have ANY young riders in the family. That has all changed in the last month. All the little ones now ride. It's the teenager that still needs convincing. Although he has taken a shine to the *Ferrari. (no balance required)

    *the red trike that Amanda is modeling above.
