I agree. IMO black or silver/aluminum fenders look good on nearly any bike. My preference is SKS because of the range of adjustment, but Planet Bike is OK as well. Paints formulated for plastic can...

After closer inspection this bike seems to be a mix of '85 and '86 components with a paint color that is not on the spec sheet of either year. It is a Chicago built Schwinn, but I was wondering if...

Yes, The Finest had a chromed frame. As I remember, the painted areas had a rougher chromed finish in order to accept paint.

Finally found a Cimarron

Completely by accident, I finally found a 1986 Cimarron. I took a found WalMart Mongoose BMX to my LBS this morning as a donation to the local coop. The lead mechanic was the only one around, so we...

I wish I had my Honda CB 175 that I sold many years ago. I am not a "biker", but I loved that little motorcycle. I commuted on it on rural highways and city streets. When it was stinking hot in the...

I bought and sold a P8 of about that vintage a few years ago. My P8 had better (as in cast) dropouts as far as I can recall. I admit I'm basing my comparison on the color/decal scheme.

I have a Peugeot PH501 with a lightly dented top tube. I ride it, but when I wash it I can feel the dent and that bothers me for some reason.

I have a Speedy Switch shifter that is marked "Made in Japan" and has no mention of Brampton on it. It is a dead ringer for an S/A or S/A licensed unit.

I would rather keep the data home. When it goes outside of your domain, there are all sorts of negatives. I think where the devices are being built, and I am loath to provide information to any...
