And now the rest of the story. Let’s see. I have some brazing experience, but never on a bike. I have ambitions to someday build a frame or two for fun so I thought I’d start small. I added cable...

Charlot Constructeur Tandem Teaser

Earlier this week I picked up this little gem. The pics are crappy because I just found it, but it's cool. Someone put a motor on it, which will likely come off. I'd appreciate any info about Charlot...

Post Westminster Show & Tell

I made the 1.5 hour trip to the swap and arrived a few minutes before 9:00am. There was a line, but it was manageable and I was in the door a few minutes after 9:00. This was my first time at this...

What is this thing clamped to the back of a 40's Schwinn light weight?

After outlining transfer pricing all morning, I got out to enjoy a great DC afternoon. My Voyageur is a heck of a gal. I decided to take only one bike (out of ~14) to DC for my masters program, and...

ISO: Older Silca floor pump. I'm looking for something I can rebuild and maybe repaint, so the gnarlier, the better. I think most of the parts are available, so it doesn't even have to be complete!
