ooooh, I've got a 67. no dents either.
though that's due to the fact that the dents rusted and are now giant holes.

:D Sounds like my Blazer. The guy at the gas station offered to buy it one night, but I came in the next time during the day and he changed his mind. sigh.

No. This thing is rust and dent free with matching engine and frame serial numbers. It lives a shallow existance in my garage, while my walwos endure the elements. Someday I will have the necesessary cash. Original everything. Dash has no cracks. In the summer when the door is open, I have periodic doorbell ringing offers.

Hmmm... I wonder why there is a 'STINKY' can in the bottle cage, and why the bottle cage bosses are so high up the seat tube...

emayex 12-14-04 05:18 PM

yeah...the height of the bottle seems inefficient... other than that it looks fine

As long as the terrain you are riding on is perfect 90 degree triangles...

Actually you'd be looking for a street full of inverted catenaries.

Isn't that a bike for going up stairs? It's even on the right size stairs in the picture!

TheDL 12-14-04 06:12 PM

I wouldn't ride that w/o being clipped in

2manybikes 12-14-04 06:21 PM

Wouldn't that work better with the old Shimano Squareo Chaing rings?

Hey. Those wheels look like a couple of mine that need truing.

He's Headed For A Cliff!

bostontrevor 12-15-04 08:48 AM

And all that for a ride that is geometrically equivalent to riding a round wheel on a flat surface. Hmmm.. :)

emayex 12-15-04 09:08 AM

more like he is heading toward a wall. he not going to fall, he is going to stop moving

Science with lack of problems to solve, will create them.

Will you guys stop posting pictures of that stupid square wheeled abomination? Its painful to look at. Lets see some more fixies and single speeds!

[EDIT: I need my fix! I'm a fixie and SS junkie, and I don't even own a fixie (yet)]

never, everyone needs to know how dumb that is.
