I didn't think this was an obscure reference

Over the holidays I scavenged 2 bikes from the dumpsters at my apartment complex. One is an old rigid frame Schwinn MTB that I'm turing into a fat-tire utility hauler. The other is a Trek 400 that I've converted to an ss/fg commuter.

Since bikes need a name, I've named them "Fred" and "Lamont", respectively. I've had to explain why this is funny for at least a half dozen people.

BTW, we have a totally white trash friend who is constantly rigging things up out of junk. Not cool things, but cheap trashy things, like a home speaker duct taped to the parcel shelf of an old LTD for sound sort of things.

Everytime he would show his latest concoction, we would all burst out into the Sanford and Son theme.

You do fit all the criteria given in my humorous missive, but sadly I am not describing you.

Fred G Sanford and Son

I think you should consider naming the bike Dummy though, since it would be more Sanfordish.

Actually Lamont would be a better name for a Big Dummy.



Or maybe that should be Grady.
