    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 9/15 - Yellow 5 Speed Schwinn StingRay

    Jake, someone bit on my "Do you have any adult bikes for sale?" yard sale question. Looks like am getting an adult trike and a cruiser tomorrow morning for three Jacksons. I want to do a chopper trike bad (and not a OCC chopper). Wish me luck. Deals are rolling in faster than I can do anything with them.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 9/17 Nirve Cruiser

    Picked this ladies (unisex) Nirve cruiser that has a bad red paint job, but nice green rims and a faux leather seat and grips. The tires have a little dry rot, but they have a funky flower tread.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 9/17 Western Flyer Trike

    I picked up this Western Flyer Trike along with the Nirve cruiser for three Jacksons.
    I am thinking this may become a chopper trike with a Nirve Clutch kids chopper frame I have.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 9/20 Old Elgin for Free

    Just sold the $60 Trek 7200 for $330 right after I ordered this old Elgin from yeshoney. Basically that makes the Elgin free with over $200 to spare.
    I am looking forward to recieving this bike. It will be my first pre-war bike ever.
    I may put the Onyx 29er wheels on it for fun!

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 8/27 - Beer Helmet Siren + Flip Bikes

    I cleared $270 profit on the Trek and $170 profit on the Hardrock. Not bad for a $100 combined investment.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 9/25 50s Huffman Custom Liner Frame

    Sold a Boston Whaler bow rail for $150 and I paid $10 for it. So I am using part of the profit to buy this cool early 50s Huffman Custom Liner from kickbackcycles along with a cool hood ornament. Otherwise this weekend was a total dud for any yard sale finds.

    Another cool bike from RRB. I love this beehive springer. Looking forward to stop buying and start building.

    To me that looks like a 50's huffy and a 40's snyder springer fork used one the 41 Hawthorne comets and such.

    Thanks for the input. It may be. It was supposed to be a mix-match. I'm not going to restore it, I just bought it because it will look cool. :mrgreen:

    What is the serial number on the frame You can date it from that.

    Definitely a Snyder fork. They ride super smooth and are not too common. Here's my '48 Hawthorne with the same fork:

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 10/2 Manton and Smith Frame

    Oz "dealed" me into buying another old frame. I couldn't pass up the Manton and Smith frame.
    I need to stop buying. It goes against my natural instinct to sell.

    Re: Kingfish254's Finds - 10/4 2 Harley Whitewalls + 2 More OCCs

    I picked up two more OCC's today and stopped by the Harley dealer and found a matching pair of WHITEWALLS!!! These will all go towards my future chopper trike build.
