    20inch boys bike?? What is it?

    I am the one who posted the bike on Craigslist. I can't find any info on it. It does have a 3 piece crank and a Centrix JRB 602 rear hub made in West Germany. The serial numbers on the bottom bracket are 320 820 and 51445600, I can't see any letters in the serial number without stripping the...

    Mike Rowe has the right idea...

    Thanks for posting this Prosparky. I became an aircraft mechanic at age 20 and I am 42 years old now. There were a lot of older mechanics that would help teach you the trade when I was starting out. Now I am one of the younger guys at work. There is nobody to pass the information and...

    Ok I did a good deed..

    You made the right decision. Now you can spread the word around town that any pink Worksman bikes for sale are probably stolen. Worksman has a picture of all the pink bikes you are talking about locked up posted in their gallery pages

    a haul for the kids

    I think it's time for a new category in the "gallery by mfg. or style" section. We will call it "Rat Rod Prosthetics". Leave the rust but spray some flat black, red wheels, and whitewalls. Seriously though, Great job on getting the bikes going for the kids.

    Who Else Is Fighting Smart Meters?

    I not saying I am a fan of PG&E, The Dems, or Repubs, but the bill for Smart Meters in California passed on July 20, 2006 when there was a Republican President and a Republican Govorner. Obama wasn't on the scene yet.

    Sandblasting Kit siphon style... anyone use one?

    I had one similar to it. I used it once and never used it again. It makes a huge mess. You will have to run the sand through a strainer to re-use it. You will also be sandblasing yourself as you are blasting your part. It may work better if you build a cabinet to contain the sand and blast your...

    Dyno Bike pics

    I was talking to Von Franco at a hot rod show and he said he was screwed out of over $20,000 when the GT/Dyno bankruptcy happened and he will never do another bike company deal again( I hope he reconsiders). There was another Dyno designer that moved over to Nirve at that time (then came the...
