    Garage queen to be sure and rarely ridden, and although I haven’t posted in forever and haven’t torqued a wrench in over a year, I thought this ’83 Trek 500 9spd conversion, the last bike I ever...

    I didn’t realize downtown LA was so rural. We got chickens and goats here. Busy Angelinos don’t have time to visit the countryside, so they’ve brought the country to the city apparently....

    Another day on the road; and I snapped this shot of a crisp morning sun-up cast across downtown LA.

    I’m a B-17 fan.

    ’79 Miyata Gran Touring that I foolishly sold with Brooks, and will never sell a bike with a good leather saddle again. It just doesn’t add the appropriate value.

    My recollection is of a dark purple Murray stingray type single speed bike with banana seat and ape-hanger bars. We lived at the bottom of a long downhill road that I enjoyed flying down then...

    I like the build of your bike. I've never tried a spindle spacer, but as mentioned, it seems an economical fix. I recently converted an '83 bike to 9spd without any issues except slow upshifting up...

    I should have taken a better picture of the Dia Compe NGC 450 centerpulls. They are pretty cool.

    Yes, R556's, with relatively new cables and housing. This leads me to believe that the bike had been recently ridden.

    That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. I've often wondered what it sounds like to pluck around on an acoustic bass. The sound must reverberate throughout the house.

    The frame builder was able to swing the rear triangle over to straightness. It’s all good.


    Thanks again you Mech Heads.

    How about, ‘saved from the parking lot’. A funny thing happened at the Home Depot today; as I was leaving the parking lot, my bike antenna went up. There in the outer lot was this frame standing...

    '83 Trek 500 9spd Mod.

    This is an ’83 Trek 500 that I tried my first modern conversion on, i.e. 700c rims and 9 spd drivetrain. Although I have ramped and pinned inner rings if needed, the 9 spd chain seems to shift just...

    The only C&V guitar is the Epiphone Caballero on the right. I bought it over 30 years ago as my first real guitar.

    This poor bike had obviously seen better days. Some artistic person had rattle-canned one side of the frame, and the 600 tricolor group was almost unrecognizable. However, with some...
