I could almost use the "Columbong" since my wood bike will be using hemp in the joints. But doesn't hemp not contain THC? Otherwise I've got ten pounds of smokables in my shed going to waste. Lol.

Yeah, they bred most all of the THC out of hemp a while ago. Here's a picture of a sign in front of a hemp field telling people not to steal the help 'cos it won't get one high. The columbong sticker belongs on a bike with the rasta tricolor paint job.

You could just as well use Indiana ditch weed.

Back in the 1970's when folks started making these "GUARANTEED NOT MADE WITH REYNOLDS" stickers, Reynolds and their US lawyers went apoplectic with cease and desist orders!


In the mid 70's there was a Peugeot dealer about 3 blocks from our shop. They a had an old Huffy clunker they used for a "shop bike". It was repainted white with PX-10 decals plus a Guaranteed Not Made Reynolds 531 sticker.


Here a post 1974 faux sticker...




Reynolds 666r tubing:

Wonder if apparent lady in foreground is a TV/TS. Her blouse/shirt is buttoned left over right as a man's would be rather than right over left as a woman's. Or perhaps the artist was male and did not know the difference...

Expression and posture of gent in rear reminds me of Frank Gifford.

Could lady in front be Kathie Lee?
