If you’ve purchased parts from me within the past few days...

...First if all, thank YOU very kindly. You’ve been tremendously helpful. Without you, I would not have been able to raise the needed money, nor afford to purchase a bike which the seller has patiently reserved for me, for a full week, to purchase by today.

Secondly, as for shipping, a few of you have already received tracking numbers a couple of days ago. I hope your parts find you soon!

Everyone else... your parts have finally been shipped as well...



Early morning window line w/ C&V @ USPS



A day behind my anticipated deadline, but the packages are with the post office, and I’ll be sending out tracking number shortly.

So once again, thank you so much!

I can see why you didn't want to be "late" getting that bike. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

You all are awesome! The shared commonality, and support among BF members is truly remarkable.

I’m glad to hear those shifters arrived. I hope they provide you with many miles of happy gear changing!

And I’d love to see pics of that old French airpump rehabbed, and hanging proudly from a proper frame!

I like the corny ‘early’ joke. I was getting tired of resisting, so I’m glad you couldn’t ...Indeed, not I bike I would’ve easily forgiven myself for being “late” for, and missing out on.

I’ll post about it sooner than later. In the mean time though, I’ll mention this much. The bike is a custom build from 1981. The frame builder was named Gary Earl Hale. He operated out of Eugene, OR from the mid 70’s to the mid 80’s under the business name “Early Cycles,” which I suspect was a play off of his middle name.

It’s a very significant bike for me, as Eugene has been my home for the larger half of my 44 years. I feel very fortunate to own it, and very grateful that you all have made it happen!

Nice. Folks not familiar with Portland don't know how easy to live there, car-free. I've been all over the country and never saw a municipal transit system like it. I lived there for 2 years, and didn't have a car after the first 2 months. Go from Portland to Rockaway Beach for $15 round trip, a 90-mile one way ride. Take the VA bus to Tillamook and back for free. All the Max trains have multiple hooks inside every car for bikes, all the buses have bike racks. A great place for being a cyclist.
