Bay Artea/NorCal folks - Wanna Showw off Your Rides?

Once again, my Rotary Club is holding a car/motorcycle/bicycle show on Fathers' Day (June 19 this year). Once again, I am in charge of the bike part. And I need some cool bikes to display.

I know from experience that some of you have some tres cool stuff, and I want to be able to display it. Here's the link: https://motorama.us/indexopt1.html .

Sign up on-line or through me. Ignore the $15 entry fee - I'll cover that. (Of course, tis is a fund raiser, so if you'd like to donate, who am I to stop you? )

The event is in Lafayette. Even if you don't want to display your steed, c'mon down and check out the event. Hey, it's free admission, and there will be a bunch of cool stuff to look at. Some pics from last year follow.

Questions? Post 'em here or PM me.

Many thanks.

Edit There is an award for Best Bike, but this is not a concours d'elegance, it is meant to show off stuff others might be intereted in. So don't be shy.

Some of the bikes at last year's event.

A 1958 Columbia paperboy model, fully restored.




Bigbossman's Eddy Merckx, with pantographed stem, chainwheels, and seat post.

More bikes from 2010 . . . .

Three from Steve Howard and Livermore Cyclery.

A 1972 or so Masi. From Milan, not Carlsbad.





An early 1960's 8-speed Varsity (yes, two chainwheels and a four-cog freewheel), complete with the Simplex "death lever" front derailleur (they really weren't that dangerous).





An Ohrt from the 1950's, featuring a British Cyclo rear derailleur, a 1930's design that was just about about to go out of production when this puppy was built. This bike was a gift to the current owner from Gus Mozart, direct descendant of that Mozart.

Scooper's unbelieveably trick 953-framed Waterford custom. You will never see another one exactly like this one.




And two from Rivendell, an Atlantis and an A. Homer Hilson behind it.

And finally, the winner of the Best Bicycle award, what was then bigbossman special edition De Rosa, painted and decalled as an homage to 1957. BBM properl;y determined that this bike was way too good for him and has since passed it along to someone much more deserving of it.

Bikingshearer, I trust you still have my small pile of bike stands. If you want it again, I'll try to get my Paramount out your way(i see it parked behind the blue Rivendell in the photo above), and I'll look in the garage to see of there is anything else interesting enough to drag out there.

BBM won with that bike??? Ah geez!

Here's a photo I took of it for him if anyone is interested:



Rich, I don't know if I have anything worthy of the bike show! I'll go rummage through my pile.

I'm afraid that my bikes aren't worthy. I plan to attend anyway.

Hello,
Does anyone know who owns the Ohrt bike in this thread? I purchased an Ohrt recently and some of the parts are not original. I am trying to determine what parts I should look for to put my bike back together. I have started a web page about the Ohrt brothers and my bike. You can see it here
The Ohrt Brothers, Ohrt DeLuxe
I would also like to have permission to use the photos in this thread on my web page.
Thanks,
chris ioakimedes
