    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 11/1 2 More Vintage Coolers

    When it rains it poors. I picked up two more vintage metal coolers. The smaller one (first photo) will be going on the back of Fugsley.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 11/19 Schwinn Exerciser, Carbide Lamps

    Nice score today, but I missed one. I saw a guy loading a nice ladies Schwinn America with pink and chrome half tank and chrome fenders with light and rack. All of the chrome was nice. He bought it for $10. I would guess late 1950s. EDIT: The guy that found the American already has it on CL for $250 (http://savannah.craigslist.org/bik/2711029871.html).

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 11/25 Another OCC

    I forgot to post it and I also forgot to post a photo, but I picked up another OCC Stingray for $20.
    I have been running an ad that Yoothgeye gave me in my craigslist for a while. This guy responded a few weeks back and finally decided to sell it to me for my parts price of $20. I didn't need it and it is rusty as heck, but I will be able to use it one way or another.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 01/23 Lights

    Picked this up from RRBer sloar. Pictures don't really do it justice. This is a very cool and nice big spotlight from a firetruck. I am setting it aside for my future salt flats sidecar build.

    Picked up another one of these lights for a buck at a yard sale.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 11/19 Schwinn Exerciser, Carbide Lamps

    After the success of using skateboards and fiberglass water skis on a couple of builds, I have been running a WANTED ad on craigslist for old wooden water skis. Someone finally replied and I will soon have three Cypress Gardens wooden water skis from the 70s. Obviously these will be good for racks, but the main thing that I want to try it to make a banana seat out of one. I may even try to make a sissy bar out of one. I'll post photos when I pick them up next weekend.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 1/28 - Schwinn Black Phantom

    That's pretty cool, so how functional is it? Wheels turn, how about crank and chain? Springer work?

    Is this one of those Franklin Mint deals that you buy out of the back of a magazine "3 easy payments"?

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 1/28 - Schwinn Black Phantom

    It's the Xonex die cast that goes for about $40 on ebay. The crank chain and wheel work. the handlebars adjust. The springer will work, but someone must have made it work too well because the for stem is broke at the bottom. I will have to put a little super glue there. I could try to flip it :mrgreen: but I think I am just going to display it in my shop somewhere. I only paid $7 for it. This is about as close to a Black Phantom as I think I will get.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 1/31 - Two Foot Apes

    Just realized that I had $34 left on an Amazon Gift Card account from a couple of years ago. I figured I needed to use it before I forgot about it for another two years.
    Just ordered these 23.5" Nirve Ape Hangers.
    http://www.amazon.com/Nirve-Cruiser-Bic ... 141&sr=8-6

    I have no idea what bike they will end up on, but everyone needs to have a 2 foot ape around.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 1/31 - Banana Seat and Sissy Bar

    Just paid for these from a fellow RRBer. I have no idea what bike they will be for, but I was in a simian mood today. After buying the apes, I had to get a banana for them.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 2/1 - Fuiji Cruiser for parts

    Picked this up last night for $10. Chain is rusted solid, but still enough parts to make it worth it.
    Nice Swing Grip handle bar extension for computers and lights and such.
    Cool chainring. The wheelset is actually in good shape. plus more.
    Decent front basket.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 2/2 Cannondale C400

    Picked up this Cannondale C400 tonight. I had planned on tuning it up for my tenant, but she decided she liked the white and red Walmart Schwinn better. This is a win-win situation because I can make $150-200 off of the Cannondale.
    (SOLD)

    Thanks. And I sold some cool stuff in the Sale forum too. Now I have more money to buy cool stuff that I can either use or sell to get more money for more cool stuff.
