Yeah, those Lotus Elans aren't cheap if they are in good shape. That's one other car we've periodically looked for that our dad owned - 1969 Elan 2+2. I was allowed to drive it once - my last day...

I've gone to 39 or 38 tooth small ring up front and either a 21t for a big in the rear or 24. I'll grab a bike with a 24 tooth freewheel for the windy days (which is probably 60% of the time). My...

Pretty sure I have an 80mm French Atax stem. I'll have to re-measure. 120mm would be about right for me if you wanted to swap.

I would completely agree on the 64 grille and 65 taillamps. The "floating" 64 grille is just cool.

And, yes, I had that thought of have a Falcon bike painted in the same colors to have in a car...

The best part is this is the second of three Falcons we had during those year that we will have back in the family. My brother located my dad's 65 Sprint hot rod in Reno 2 yrs ago and bought it back...

A big N+1 may equal N-4 or 5

I have to be patient and wait a week but I got some fantastic news today that will equal a big N+1.

Had a little time yesterday and finally switched out the Sakae CR crankset on the PX10 for a Stronglight 103. Went from 52-42 to 52-38. This should make a much better hill climber - I'm going to...

Nice looking ride. I've got a '84 Sprint and love riding it. I'm a sucker for the nicer French bikes but tend to gravitate toward Gitane also.

And while D.D. is playing in the snow I was busy coaching my daughter and her teammates with beautiful temps in the mid-70's F. Love watching her play.

Another fan of the early 90's Trek 900 series. I picked up a mostly original 93 950 for $60 from the local college surplus sale. It's a great riding bike.

Sounds like fun - I'll be in Selah for the first softball tournament of the year. Weather is supposed to be in the 70's so you should have a great ride.
