Remainder will be used for the Favorit when I get to it...

...the purple key chain and light were the galís take for attempting to refill the box...

Shadowy take...

Nice to see a bunch of my contributions to the BOC reclaimed!!! Was the glass lens of the Regina shattered? I was worried about it. I considered packing it separately but didn't act on it...

Nice picture!!

I wonder where that lumino for a velo came from...

Gee, I dunno! :roflmao:

I assume so...it wasn't in there. It is such a beautiful piece to go into my coffee table display case I built from pallets, I couldn't resist.

However, if anyone believes that display is a crappy way to use crap, please PM me and I will send it along!

The pedals and Huret FD are perfect for the Favorit, which is scheduled for this summer!

My girl loved the purple keychain and since she aided and abetted crap removal and replacement, happy gal...

The pedals and keychain were among my puts, glad to have made you both happy!

I have updated the list of recipients in post number 249 and am awaiting the return of ChrOm0ly so that he can update the list in the first post. Smiles, MH

Yikes, looks like it got roughhoused a bit coming out of Portland.

Glad you could use the Huret FD! I knew the whole box was a Francophile's dream and a front derailleur was all it needed.

They did! Thank you! Pedals and FD will definitely make the Favorit happy as well...I have never used any Huret stuff so it will be interesting sourcing the rest.

The Bowel has moved! With its trusty catalog partner! Onto @mcgregorj

It's here - a day earlier than expected! I made sure to thank our letter carrier for schlepping this onto the porch. Heavy metal, indeed. I can't wait to tear into it, but really need to wait until tonight - this is going to be a serious undertaking - it feels a bit like I need to take step by step photos, as if I was dismantling a part, to make sure I can get it back together!

That's cheating...You have to tear it apart in excitement and then look at the pile and the box with dread...

mcgregorj 06-01-21 11:38 AM

Ha, jdawginsc . Well I couldn't resist a quick look, but now "just a peek" has turned into "dining room table covered in crap" ;)

I AM glad that my professionally rebonded plexiglass made the trip in one piece...it did increase the weight slightly with duct tape.

mcgregorj 06-03-21 01:14 PM

For what it's worth, I am now at a total loss as to how to get this stuff back into the box, not even to speak of getting my own contributions in there :bang:

Adopt more crap into your home!

Mad Honk 06-03-21 08:16 PM

Clean the BOC as needed to keep it within the limits for the post office to ship. Sometimes the crap needs a purge to make the movable crap a bit less than junk being moved from place to place. Smiles, MH

Weíre down to the last two crap hounds, anyone else low on fun? Itís me and then bwilli88.

If anybody's on the fence, it's definitely fun and worth a turn. And I did finally get the box to close! Phew.

mcgregorj 06-04-21 08:47 AM

Here's my haul. I think I put a handful of fun replacement crap in there, although had to hold on to a couple of things that wouldn't fit. Next time!

(The 6-speed 14-32 was perfect for my project. Really freaking gummy, but a lot of flushing with WD-40 later, it's spinning like a dream.)

Ha!! Much of that crap was added by me! :lol: But damn I wish those Racers were in there when I received the BOC, I need a set!

ascherer 06-04-21 07:40 PM

That's a pretty craptastic haul!

scarlson 06-04-21 09:27 PM

That "racing" rear view mirror is from mee!

Now these free Racers from the Box of Crap are really making want to buy a particularly expensive Herse upgrade kit. Feels counterproductive... :lol:

Weighing in at 34 pounds even, the BOC (and companion packet of reading material) is in the mail and headed your way, mountaindave

What's bottom center, that looks sort of like earrings?

Those are tire savers of a sort...ride along the center of the tread and pull out glass while the bike is moving..

southpawboston 06-06-21 07:26 PM

Looks like someone after me added in the missing hanger bolt for the Suntour derailleur I put in the BOC. Hey now, you're not supposed to make the crap *less* crappy!
