Spring Cleaning!

I've been slowly cleanning my garage/shop. Every other weekend as weather permitted. Still a little crowded, but that's OK!

I was able to get a lot of bicycles redone this winter. I have a lot more bikes than room so I'm usually working with a set of handlebars stuck in my back or a pedal somehwere else! As the weather clears up I can put out 4 or 5 bikes outside and use both stands. Having a bike stalled on the main stand brings everything to a stand still! Conversely, I got a lot more riding in this year! I've really thrown some great bikes together this winter! I've given a lot of so-so bikes away to make my life easier! I was like a shot out of a cannon this weekend on my recently finished Motos! One Le Champion and my Grand Touring that hid away in a heated basement for 31 years! Still sporting the original Hutchins Motobecane tires! Come on spring!

Yes, now I see pics. Pics of bikes.
You got some bikes there. If you didn't work on them and ride them, I'd think you could have a problem. Nope, it's a hobby!

I wish! Nope, Airstreams, tractors, and my wife's 1963 Dodge Sweptline pickup.
