    Cleaning up the little shop (affectionately referred to “Somewhere Else” around here) the last few weeks and started taking inventory of frames and parts needed to assemble riders.

    First up was this old ‘50’s Huffy step-through frame that I’ve been trying to sell for years...

    I had a spare wheel set that wouldn’t clash with the old paint (had to dimple-clearance the chain stays for the 2.3” Cyclops tires), found the front fender, cobbled a seat, and POOF.....

    More to come....

    Next up was a cool straight-bar “Columbia-Built” Westfield. Picked this one up in a lot of 4 bikes.

    Pulled a wheel set from another bike, straightened the fork, tightened up the loose stuff and, SHAZAM!!!...

    Still have to clean it up, install a chain and find some training wheels. Ought to be a cool one for the kiddos!!

    Love it. Best way to build, what a way to spend an evening.
