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.

    Steve

    I've been thinking about putting together a bike in this "Guv'nor" style (for lack of a better term), and I'd love to see what other people have come up with.
    Anybody out there done this???

    *For those not familiar, this is what I'm talking about:

    Nice! Same style, yet original - just what I was looking for.
    Anybody else?

    Here's mine. 50's Malvern Star 2 Star frame with 700c wheels, Schwalbe Delta Cruisers, and Sachs Duomatic hub.
    I've recently changed the bars from the Soma Noah's Arc to a Nitto promenade - took a little while to get used to the upright riding position, but I think it looks better.

    Wow, that's scary - you've used a lot of the same stuff I've set aside for mine! Nice job!

    Hmm, too many gears, fenders, need some white or cream tires, and paint it a darker green and you're all there! :lol: Seriously, nice bike! -Adam

    Came across this style discussed at a bike shop today. I see what you mean where mine doesn't the grade. I fell in love once I saw one up close. I just cannot bring myself to tear this one apart. Though, I may put this concept on my girl's Peugeot. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Here's mine. It's a 1968 Raleigh Super Course with original "Root Beer" paint. It has full Campy set-up. I converted it to a single speed/Fixed gear with 700cc weinmann's with Phil Wood hubs. this is an older photo ; I have since added leather grips, campy pedals & toe clips, and his name to the top tube.."Nigel". This is my around town commuter and my "Alley Cat" bike. I had to add the "beer crate" on the back to haul my frosty brews...enjoy!!
