1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    Hola peoples,

    I thought some of you might like to see this .. maybe it might inspire some of you.

    I found a 20" bike at the thrift store when I was looking for bike parts. It is called a space star by Woolco.. distributed by Woolworth's. Got it for $3.00 so.. it will be a project for a later date.

    I love the arcade style of that bike. It represents the culture during that time. :D

    Woolworth's, that brings back memories we had one of those on Main St when I was growing up, back in the age before malls. Cool bike.

    That's cool. Makes me wanna go find a stand up space invaders game and toss some change in it.

    The ol'lady and I were just talking about woolworths the other day.

    Got fond memories of the soda stand they had in the one my grandma took me to as a kid.

    Cool piece of history and your lbs deserves a sixer or a fat steak for that one
