    PLEASE ANSWER THIS QUESTION

    Mike, 39. My grandfather passed, and about a year later I found what turned out to be a 49' (or so) CWC Western Flyer tied to the rafters in his barn. Rusty as heck, but it was so frickin' neat! I had no idea where it came from, as I hadn't ever noticed it before. I took it home, and since it...

    70s Huffy 3speed Open Road

    I live in Dayton, grew up here, and have a soft spot for all Huffy bikes. I have a couple new cruisers, a USA made mountain bike, and a couple old three speeds. 70's three speeds, to my knowledge, were built by Raliegh in England and imported for sale here. I've picked one out of the trash, seen...

    Guitar Players: Show us yours!

    They're just 12" soft pine, used a 2" hole saw, then cut about 1/2" off of the front of the hole, and clearance slots, rounded and sanded everything, and boom baby! I may have to reinforce the electric rack, it flexes a lot, I'm thinking some 1/2"x1/2" angle aluminum screwed to the underside...

    Guitar Players: Show us yours!

    Here is our (my wife and I) collection. Mostly inexpensive, but all playable, and most have some sentimental value, like the 58' harmony stratotone she learned to play on, my uncle's harmony res-o-tone banjo, or the kit Tele she bought me for Christmas a few years back. We play out alot, and...

    Late 40s CWC Western Flyer

    Well, she wasn't finished. I rode her all summer, but was never entirely happy with the colors. So over the last couple months, I repainted her, mounted an old soda crate on the rack, and am pretty happy with the result. I may have gone a touch overboard with the stripes. Still pretty happy with...

    Late 40s CWC Western Flyer

    Thanks! I'm thinking I need to add some color to the rack, it seems like maybe too much white all in the same place.
