    Araya Faux-Class Wheels

    I decided to make a false set of Araya Pro Class wheels. Over the years I’ve been drawn to bikes with dimpled rims! I have a few sets of CMC wheels so why not give it a shot. Here’s what I’m starting with. Nice little medium high flanged front hub and a Shimano D-Type coaster for the rear...

    ‘57 Schwinn Straight Bar

    I bought this ‘57 a few weeks ago. It came with a mangled drop out and bent chainstays. I got it all sorted out and straight as my lazy eye can see. I stripped it of the cheap green paint, removed chainguard tabs, primered, paint/sand x3 and a few clear coats. I only reused the rims on the...

    Is it possible? Yes it is.

    Is it possible to adapt these Oval Concepts 520 crankset onto an American style bottom bracket? I got them for free and I have no idea what type of road/mtb bike they came off of or what type of bearing system they even use. In my head I thought a euro adapter to whatever these bearings...

    Couple Cycle Pro’s

    Added another Cycle Pro to the fleet yesterday. I had to bring out my other one for a pic. I really like my coaster Cycle Pro so I’m happy I found a geared one. It is a comfortable cruising bike. I plan on changing it up a little over the weekend and getting a snowflake chainring to match the...

    Photoshop Request

    Can someone please photoshop a 3rd bar on this frame? Thinking it’ll look good as a 3 bar cruiser, but my photoshop skills start and end with Microsoft Paint. Here’s the pic, maybe a couple different angles and the 3rd bar ending where the seat tube and top tube meet. Thanks in advance, I...

    The "Dad" Cruiser

    Now that my kid is turning 1 and ready to go on bike cruises at the beach or on pathways I decided that I wanted to build a full time "dad" cruiser. Specifics I had in mind when putting it together: A bike where her bike seat is attached to full time. Internally geared (not automatic)...

    ’62 Schwinn Typhoon

    Can someone tell me if these fenders are correct for this bike? I know the stem and bars aren’t correct, but I can’t tell on the fenders. They have a red stripe painted on where a white stripe could’ve been previously. The frame and original wheels have been repainted in the last few years...

    Some scores/Upgrades/Stuff

    Swooped in last min on eBay and won this frame a couple weeks ago. Wouldn’t say it was a steal, but it’s a awesome frame for the collection. It has a few layers of paint, with black being the original color on it. Plans to make a strandie out of it, nothing high end. Just need ANOTHER bike that...

    67 Sears Fleetwood

    Picked up this woman’s Sears Fleetwood, was told it was a 67 but I’m not really sure to be honest. I bought the bike for less than half the price of the brand new brooks saddle that’s on the bike. Nice little 3 speed for the wife to zip around on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Team Murray X24

    Saw this Huffy on Craigslist for $20 and I thought it was worth that in parts alone. When I got there he also had the Murray in the garage and I threw him and offer and he said yes. He said it’s an 82 Murray and was planning on working on it to be a cruiser, I guess that never happened. I...

    '58 Klunker

    Hey everyone, I bought this Columbia frame this past year and it came with the crankset, headtube cups, kickstand and seatpost. Not much else to work with. I had too many projects at home to deal with first before I can put it together with bits that I had lying around to build a klunker/rider...

    Real or Fake Brooks Saddle

    Bought this saddle today for $3 at a swap meet. Has a Brooks nameplate and undercarriage is stamped Viscount 2290. I’ve never seen this type of saddle that’s stamped as a Brooks. Is it a fake? Looks like it says Brocks, but the tin has some discoloration on it. Let me know what you guys think...
