My garage is getting full of toys.

Decided to do some hanging. Not sure this is the final configuration but it'll do for now.

I used to hang both wheels from the ceiling with hooks for more space. After a few shoulder tendon tears, I decided to just hang the back wheel only. Years catching up with me.

Yeah, 10 foot ceilings make horizontal hanging a bit of a reach.

I don’t see a single giant scale RC airplane, a shiny new mega dollar lawn tractor, a kegerator, any woodworking tools, a workbench... looks empty to me. One bike on either side of the grocery hauler. Full? Ha.

I have had thoughts about a portable building or repurposed shipping container out back for a dedicated bike shed. But the hobby is still too new for that.

I don’t know, man... cycling has been around a long time.

Give some away

Just took my beloved 1981 Raleigh to the transfer station "swap" shed yesterday. Adjusted front bearings, tested chain wear (ok), sanded and painted rusted steel on top bar where sweat had eaten through paint and corroded it. All it needs is handlebar tape. I am not good at that, so new owner can deal with it.

A good bike for someone, more space for me in my garage; a win-win. I'm sure someone would take that convertible off your hands if you need more space...

I built special shelves for all my vintage shop-vacs. When my post count is high enough, I'll post some pics.

I like it that you have a sand blasting machine (and a kind of big one at that)

Yeah....a bit embarrassing that one. Bought it for a project (rehabbing an old tow dolly) and it may be too far gone to save so I've not used the blast cabinet yet.
