Pub crawl bikes

Me and a few mates are building up old looking bikes to do some pub crawls on. My 2 builds are a 1973 Raligh Sport that I've converted to stealth electric and a early 1990s girls bike we've painted to look like a 1950s bike. We also have 2 Raleigh 20s. Pics below are before and after...

As a drinker, I really like the idea of a low-entry/ step-through frame! And the fenders are a must! Looks great, dude!

I'm selling my bar bike, to make room, but I wanted to share, its a minivelo Vanmoof T series. Its great for the bar, because it has a 2 speed kickback hub (no shifters), disc brakes, and internal dynamo BRIGHT lights. Makes for a very safe and easy bike to get home from the bar with, IF you're good on 20 inch wheels. lol

Cheers!- John

Sorry if I don't have a photo of my bike. It's a 1987 Trek Elance 330 converted to 650b
I'd just like to say that since I can't pub crawl due to Covid19 restrictions, I made the most of what I could do. Liquor store crawl!
Most stores have a shelf with single cans/bottles. So, I stopped at 4 stores, a beer at each, even tipping a dollar at each like I normally would at a bar. This made for a great and interesting Saturday, two days ago.

You just gave me a use for my sister's Schwinn from the 60's with its balloon tiers. She told me she didn't want it and to get rid of it, but I kept it, realizing it was worthless, but thinking I'd find some use for it!

Years ago I was on a job in Indiana and one of my workmates and myself went to the Sally Ann and bought el cheapo used bikes that we rode to the bars every day after work. Mine finally lost its chain and other fails. They were stolen from outside one of the bars in the end so that ended that bit of fun.

Here's my bar-hopper, or, at least will be when I'm done.



It's a Huffy Zephyr and I plan to put a gas motor on it...just hope it doesn't replace my main bike.
