Just a boring old door.

Maybe not vintage (it's a 2010) but it is classic. Last model year for US made Cannondale touring bikes.

Thankfully, yes. He's a wonderful and incredibly patient man. And this was just one of the crazy things I did. He never knew what he was coming home to, the poor guy.

There is a build thread for that one. Actually two builds in one thread. HERE The bike has changed more from the updated version on that thread. I have added a vintage Brooks Professional saddle, a solid aluminum seat post with a Campagnolo quick release and Honda 305 levers. Finally found a TA Specialities Cyclotouriste crankset that fit my needs/price range on eBay France. It will be here the end of March. Maybe it will be time to update the thread when that happens.

I will spare everyone The Doors

These have been checked over the winter and are headed to the Ready Room.



Noticed that no two have same color bar tape. Tho the baby blue cloth kinda looks white-ish (and dirty).

1928 garage original to the house. It is 10 feet wide with an 8 foot four-section door. I straightened the garage last fall so the bungee cord is no longer necessary to close the doors. As near as I can tell it hasn't held a car since the Truman administration? Currently holds 6 bikes with room for more after I finish the roof and get shingles out. It will finally get painted this summer.

It's a 1939 James Arrow Ace Convertible Touring Tandem. Since that picture was taken it now has new CR-18 alloy rims, and a new Sturmey front drum brake. think its now about 5 pounds lighter. I also got some period appropriate decals.

I don't have a garage, so no garage door. Perhaps my garden shed door will serve as a replacement.
