Here are a few newer photos of my bikes with improved resolution thanks to my daughter. Kids are smart these days!

thanks

You are the first to see this page I believe, so I am curious if the images are decent etc. Gotta figure out all the tricky ways to use my computer to post photos etc. I guess I am truly a "vintage rider". I knew the Clyde page was the place to post!!!

Yes, the photos (and quality) looked great.

Yes, they are made from sugar maple boards and pull around 50 pounds. I have a Red Elm, Black Locust, Yew and a Walnut/Hickory two piece project in the works. These are being made from tree staves except the Walnut will be Hickory backed. I also have some more Maple and a piece of Bamboo to back with. So far I've made maybe 5 or 6 bows and helped a friend with his. So many projects, so little time!

Yea......its for sale, cause its too small for me, 55cm. I really need to be riding a 58/59cm. Tangerine is the PPG color painted at Elliot Bay Cycles/Davidson. Columbus SL tubes, Chromed, mostly old School 1976-1980's Campy parts. Back end spread to 130mm and a 6-speed Regina 13-23 Freewheel. My dream bike in my 20's but it doesn't work for me at 48......bummer.

Were you at the Sportsman's show in Puyallup with the primitive bow folks? I would have stopped by if I'd known...

No....I wish I'd known there were some boyers there. I'd be interested to see some work others have done.
