    Tank for 58-59 JC Higgins boy's Flightliner

    As the title says. This tank is specific for the 58 - 59 Flightliner. It has separate switches for the headlight and the horn. I don't care if the light and/or horn work; I'm more interested in the aesthetic value. Send me a PM with what you have. Thanks, Ed

    Copper plating

    You do realize that that green thing that stands in New York harbor, Lady Liberty, is made of copper. Take a look at all of the copper domes on churches and government buildings.

    Schwinn kick stand

    I'm 86'ing this want ad for a kick stand. A little research shows that a 55 Hornet came with a "detachable" kickstand. I have the correct chainguard and if I were to continue with the Starlet, I'd need to find a set of chrome S2 rims. I'll be happy with my painted rims and feather chain...

    Schwinn kick stand

    Here's a picture of the Schwinn frame with the missing kick stand housing. After I removed the bolt-on kick stand, I can see that it appears that it was not torched off but rather it was just broke off. If you can help me, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks again, Ed

    Schwinn kick stand

    I recently acquired a 55 Schwinn Starlet, complete except that the built in kickstand has been surgically removed with a torch. I can clean up where it was cut off but I need the part. If anyone has a junked out Schwinn frame from which they could cut out the kick stand housing and kick stand...

    Show your Black and White photos

    Here's a picture of the bike that I built from a frame, chain ring, and fork. Didn't want to go to the expense of chroming a bunch of stuff so I bought a couple of cans of camo paint. The picture above is of the same bike but I got to playing around with Photoscape. :) Hope that's fair. Ed

    Rat bike guys adjustable wrench.

    This is available on Amazon for about $17. Found it when I was looking for this set of thin wrenches I got a couple of years ago.

    Removing house paint ?

    I thought of this the other day when I was watching an episode of Ask This Old House. How much of that old house paint that you want to remove has a lead in it. Lead paint was outlawed in 1978. Chances are that paint you're trying to remove is older than that.

    Franken Tandem gallery

    In the original post, @Rickpaulous mentions that he built a quad some years ago. Last year I came across a couple of Murray middleweights that were really cheap so I bought them for the accessories - tires, wheels, handlebars, etc. I drew up some plans to make a quadracycle from them. Has...
