Dear All, thank you for your kind comments & compliments! I feel so great!

To be frank, I was inspired by John Haboush's mancave on YouTube. Before, I collected & kept my bikes in another room without decorating anything on walls, no mounting, no hanging at all (being not allowed to do so). A few months back, that room was taken back by my wife for setting up a family living room where the whole family can gather together for fun & relax. No need to go downstairs to the main living room.

I, myself with all C&V related stuffs were kicked out of the room. Another room on the top floor (3rd floor) was given for my hobby which is quite tough to go up & down daily. Then, within 3 months I set up my mancave like what you see now on the clip.

Hi all, today I would like to invite you for a closer look on my Frejus (from my vintage steel bike collection mancave). Hope you like it!


Sorry all, I decided to delete the uploaded video clip on YouTube due to copyright issue for the soundtrack which made it blocked in some regions. I will upload another one after changing soundtrack.

Try it again, please. I do not see any problem at all. My previous clip was also played & watched by many members from the US. Maybe your PC needs a restart...

Just got an email from YouTube informing that my clip was blocked in some countries due to copyright issue! It was due to the copyrighted soundtrack "Knock Three Times"!
So, I will edit the soundtrack for re-uploading onto YouTube soon!

Great job Nguyen!

My corner of the basement is a mess- My idea was to have a shelf of components and my tool chest and room to work on bikes- while still having room to play music- It's an "either/or" thing down there.

@jjhabbs! You inspire people!

Hey Nguyen Dang,
Glad I could be of some inspiration. My first mancave video was taken off because I put music on my video. Not being familiar with copyright laws I screwed up. Cool vid however! Good luck with your upstairs room!

Hello everyone again!

I do hope that my new uploaded clip won't have any further issue & you all can watch it!

Cheers,


If someone from the US could not play the clip, please let me know as I am now still not sure whether this newly uploaded clip is working after changing the soundtrack or not.

Hi jjhabbs!

Yeah, I was so impressed about clips of your mancave. I watched them for some dozen of times & decided to do something with my small collection. I will try to collect more bikes in the future & will share with you guys!

Cheers,

Nguyen Dang

Hi The Golden Boy!

Thanks!

I think you guys in the US & other advanced countries can surely do things much better than me thanks to better skills & tools. I am still a newbie in this hobby & need to learn from all of you a lot.

Nicely detailed scale models.

i wish I kept the TdF corgi set I had... I have most but that one went AWOL ... Thinking it may not have survived a Christmas Eve fire long ago. We were away and the next door neighbor threw water on a grease fire... Interesting note, my parents got on a plane right away to assess things, there was one first class seat, my Mom got that and in an event that would not happen today, my father rode up with the cockpit crew in the jump seat. A different era for sure!

That is a very nice and clean Frejus. You must have paid a fortune for that saddle.

That nice saddle on my Frejus was from a friend & I just had to treat him with a noodle soup (Pho) & a cup of coffee for breakfast. That's it.

Dang,
I must have missed your thread on my return here at C&V, to my detriment. Beautifully executed videos by you and your brother. Your "Mancave" looks great, they should reflect the inhabitant, not some stereotype of an adult male. Thanks for taking so much time to present these Classic and Vintage bicycles, as well as your space, to us, and in your gracious replies to individuals.
