Woodrup #1697 Owner in usually sunny Tucson, AZ USA

Greetings from usually sunny Tucson where we get an average of 12" of rain a year. In the past 30 days we have gotten a little over 5". This makes the desert very happy!
Through the years I have ridden pretty much just for fun and exercise a couple of time a week.
Now I am down to five miles 3 or 4 times a week as part of my rehab. I fell of my roof nine months ago and shattered both my heels and broke both ankles. Another surgury in two weeks to take some of the Ace Hardware store out of one foot.
The reason I joined was to find out more about what my Woodrup might be worth since I have not ridden it in 15 years and will not be able to in the future. I have emaild Woodrup several times with no response. I did see on their serial number page that this would be the second oldest bike there.
My brother had the frame built back in the early seventies to his specifications. Sadly to say he was killed as a passenger in a one car roll over 29 years ago.
Eighteen or so years ago I took it to my buddy Andy Gilmour who took it apart and updated it with water bottle and cable braze ons and put a sweet paint job on it including the Woodrup decals. It is a beautiful bike and has pretty much just been a monument to my brother. I don't think it has 100 miles on it since it was updated, I did not want to crash it or have it stolen.
Now I will dig around and find the appropriate formum to talk old bikes.
Peace, Stevareeno

Hi Stevareeno.
Stop by the Classic & Vintage forum, a little farther down the page.

Hello Stevareeno, I too have a Woodrup (although I can't recollect offhand what serial number it is). Take some photos, and post them in Classic & Vintage, and we can all enjoy talking Woodrups .

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
