    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - Five speed hub with 24x3 Thick Bricks

    EDIT: I meant to post this on my pre-BO7 Dream Board

    Now that I have the creme 24x3 Thick Bricks, I think that I will end up lacing this 5 Speed SA Hub to the 24" front rim of an OCC.
    I need to set this hub and shifter up in a rig to see if there is any way that I can make one of my NOS Muscle bike shifters work for it.

    You must have a ton of those 24" front wheels floating around like I do. I haven't decided yet if I will run the 24" OCC on the front of my build-off WCC yet or not. I currently have that wheel on the front and it looks really good, better than the OCC ever did, heck the WCC is just a better bike all around.

    Not necessarily bike related, but picked up this scroll saw, sanding station, and mudflap girls for only $40.

    I wasn't sure if I would ever use the scroll saw, but I couldn't pass up the price. After googling around a bit, it looks like I can do some pretty cool stuff with it. Fast forward on the video below to the fininshed project in metal.

    There is one like it, but with spoke wheels on ebay for $400. A set of Lester mags like these just sold on ebay for $178.
    I paid $10 for the bike. :mrgreen:

    Cleaned up and nice, the Western Flyer is probably worth more than the other three bikes combined. As said in your other thread, a red Invader 3 was bid up to $350 on eBay last week, reserve not met. The guy now put it up for $400 BIN; what a dummy.

    Thanks for the insight Partsguy!!
    I may have to wait until after BO7 to have time to clean it up for ebay.
    Oh well, it's a better investment than my 401k.

    It's also about 8" long by 3" wide. But it was still a cool find hidden away for the past 30 years!!

    Was that some sort of promotional bill (anything on other side) or was it just play money?

    It describes different US currency on the other side. No bike promo stuff. Just a cool item some kid stuck in his bike 30 years ago.

    Tell the truth though, you got excited when you first uncovered it right?
