    I stopped by the mini-bike/bike swap at Portland today. Seems there were a lot of good deal to be had....Here are some of my scores from today.

    A pair of 12" whitewalls for the Schwinn Lil Tiger I'm building my grandson...

    A donor bike. I needed a set of 12" chrome wheels, so I picked up this one for $5.

    a Persons seat with crash rail for a Huffy build I have going on...

    a cool oil tank. You can see where the guy cleaned it off. Not sure what I'm gonna do with it, but it should work on a rat build...

    A working horn. That is a bit of adhesive on the side. The horn is in nice shape and sounds good.

    An interesting LED light with mounting bracket for $1. Thinking about painting is red and using it as a tail light.

    I kinda dig the look of the masking tape and price on the tank. I'd consider leaving it.

    Actually that is the copper color of the metal underneath. Not sure what it is made of, but it has a brass look to it and it is really heavy. The guy buffed off that section with steel wool. It should all clean up like that fairly easy
