TibiMAC frame and fork.

Assembly started at 2PM. Fork was extended to accomodate the anti- swing mechanism.
TibiMAC finally assembled late in the afternoon. Accessories are being sorted out to give the bicycle a custom look.

Hi mang boy,

hope all is well with you and mark.
I was wondering if the bike shop near your home sells inner tube for my 27" x 1+3/8" tires. I need to replace atleast 1 and i would like to use the japan valve. I forgot the name of the bike shop. Does he have a phone ? And i hope to pass by malabon one of these days and my turn to buy lunch. Kind regards.

Bridgestone La Cushion Beat getting new stickers.

Something to bring to enjoy leisure cycling. I found this in one of the computer shops and the red label "For Bicycle" called my attention. Since my cellphone is capable of playing MP3 music this item compliments my listening. Powered by 2AA batteries.

I found this Lepper seat among my brother's for sale used items. I first tried it on my bike to see if the springs would hold my weight. It was perfect for my TibiMAC mini velo. The seat was made in Holland.

Another mini velo being restored. I got a Bridgestone Asmo almost a year ago dismantled. The frame was newly painted and I had the chain cover and carrier chromed. At last I was able to scout for the 22 x 1 3/8 rims and so I was able to start the assembly. So far I've been looking for a kick stand and an internal dynamo hub.
Anyone who knows where I can get an image of the bicycle? I do need the sticker design and check also what else I am missing. I'll be posting the image of the bicycle by tomorrow.

Anyone who knows the site where I can see the same Bridgestone model would be appreciated.

Coudn't find images of Bridgestone Asmo to see the stickers, so I had the stickers made temporarily.

BS Asmo with stickers applied. Installed anti-swing and LED rear lights.

My next project : restoration of my 2nd Bridgestone Utility Bicycle.

My 1st Bridgestone Utility Bicycle.

Original condition of my 2nd Bridgestone Utility Bicycle.

After 4 months of absence from the rides, Marc and I finally had the chance to join a ride to Sta. Maria, Bulacan. The ride was joined by Jitensha cyclists from Malabon and Bulacan. Several uphills made the ride enjoyable. Marc had the chance to ride his Dodge Chopper supporting a ferris wheel LED which was an attraction to people on the streets.

With other cyclists.

Found this rear light in one of the LBS. A classic model of Cat Eye

Found this set of Arai (AP-25) pedals which is very rare at this time in any LBS. Reserving this pedal just in case an Arai bicycle comes up for restoration.

New CO-UNION grips suitable for mamachari handlebar.

Sancycles 04-22-11 12:26 PM

I just finished wiring the twin headlamps and tail light of the Bridgestone Asmo. Since I have a few rechargable 7.2 volts R/C batteries I decided to use them on my bicycle to supply power to the head lights.
