    Two for two!! She's getting upset with me.

    I took the long way home this moning and wouldn't you know it, just when we thought it was safe to go-a-ridin look what followed me home. That's two roadside freebies in two days if anyone's keeping score.



    It's nothing special, just an old Huffy in need of some TLC and a new home. I'll provide the TLC but I absolutely, positivaly, definately, no doubt about it will not give it a nw home. I know this because SHE told me so!!

    Some little girl will be getting a nice blue Huffy sometime soon.

    Yesterday's find .....



    ....with the Shimano Front Freewheel will stay with me though.

    WOW! Two GR8 finds, congrats!

    You don't even want to see the stuff I see on the side of the road...
    Good to know someone is finding the good stuff!
    Good "Before" pic of the Huffy, make sure to post the "after", OK?

    I used to sell Ross's in a small shop I had in the '80s. Well-made bike although kinda heavy. That one looks cherry. I think the idea behind the fixed rear cog and the freewheel crank was that you didn't have to be pedaling to shift, just rolling. I never thought it there was much merit to the idea.

    I dazzle readily and the oddity of the beast literaly fascinates me.

    Can't see what the wife is worrying about. These are womens frames and have been aquired for her

    It may take a while to get them sorted and eventually she may not like the ride- but until you fix the bikes and then adjust out for her- They stay. Can't miss up on a chance to get the wife on a Full racing bike and a beater to go down the shops.

    But then I haven't seen your wife in full Fury so use your discretion.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
