    Going to visit as many memorials as I can along a 25 mile stretch. Just me and my ride. Been waiting for this time to come.

    Sweetie and I cruised today stopped uptown at the VFW and watched a memorial service. Heartfelt thanks to all have served in our military.

    May 18th Tamale Ride with @Pookie42 @Skipton and the Chicago Taildraggers. I'm riding the Thunderbolt Grease Slapper, my current BO14 entry, a '53 Schwinn Spitfire.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    A couple friends from outta town wanted to see some sights so I took them on a bike ride. Took them around Santa Monica, Venice beach and a few other spots along the way.
    Brought out my Columbia, Huffy and Cyclepro.

    I don't know about you guys, but I ride my bikes as I assemble them for the build offs. I took the Chiggins! out for a shake down run the other day and again today minus the fender and skirts... Usually just a short run depending on how it feels, I put a couple miles in today. [​IMG][​IMG]When I got back I swapped out the fork.

    So I joined a team my sister started for the Great Cycle Challenge. I ride and a program tracks my miles for June. I pledged an easy 100 miles and today rode just a few. On Chiggins! Really needs a decent set of BB bearings and I'm going to dig thru the hubs I have to see what flys, ha. But all in all I've actually put close to 20 miles on it as us and it's a roller.

    Took out Interrobang.
    Saw some weird people covered in streamers of tissue paper and banging sticks together. Made me think of a rejected Borat skit.

    Aye, the sea be a fickle lady, beautiful and bold, she can turn her love to rage at ye with the wink of her eyes. But, how those heavenly brief moments of her grace be worth the span of a hundred lifetimes of toil tied to the land! So, the fog rolled in rather suddenly.

    I have a bad habit of making my bikes too nice and then not riding them. I bought this Grant's department store bike for one dollar, laced a nexus three into it and I have put about a thousand miles on it, A cheap lock is good enough, and if anything at all breaks I can replace it for cheap.

    My afternoon cruise today was this week's revival bike. A '41 Royal Flyer that came home brushed and bombed as shown, with fenders and wood block peddles. IMG_20190608_172027.jpg
    Today it has fresh grease and rubber where it goes and glides whisper quiet and in the direction you point it.
    This week's combo only, nothing is set in lockite.
    This week's special was made possible by the kind donations of 80s? Schwinn steering and rolling groupo. IMG_20190608_171955.jpg

    Affordable land in the city?
    I'll see what I can dig up on this scheme.
