A place for photos and descriptions of your bikes.
I've decided to list my top project bikes in one Gallery Thread , with periodic updates and pic's . Hopefully I can finish some this year and post a complete build thread I'll start with my newest acquisition , a '53 ? Monark Super Deluxe , I've wanted one for a long time ! Here's what I'm starting with
This is the bike I've been working one the most lately , there's going to be a lot going one with this one I actually started on this may years ago , and the acquisition of a few key parts recently , has stepped up progress . Some parts shown are for mock up only , and are not going to be used . She started life as a 1934 girls Schwinn , and was my very first antique bike
My long wheelbase Roadmaster , I actually started a build thread for this one I knew I should have waited
Roadmaster Luxury Liner . I keep missing out every time a tank comes up , I either don't have the money , or get outbid seems a lot of people are looking for a tank also

And my as yet still unfinished Build Off bike , Gasser style , I've got some surprises in store for this one . About all I'm lacking is a rear rim , and I would like to get a Huffy Mag sprocket , but I have most of the parts ... oh , yeah I bought a Jerald for it , but used it on another bike , I guess I need one of those too
Can you tell the snow storm is hitting Pittsburgh , and I'm bored And last , but certainly not all , but last for now ; 1950 or '51 JC Higgins , bought from original owner . I actually was working on this recently . I painted the chain guard maroon , months ago , and last week I scuffed it , masked it off , and shot the stripe gold . And when I peeled the tape , all the maroon came with it no mechanical adhesion . Haven't got up the nerve to try again yet .These are just the projects that I'm currently interested in , of course I've got a garage full of backburners . Am I insane
i hope not. otherwise they need to set up the next padded room for me. one of my first post was just like this. a million projects and none done. i think of all the bikes i showed then i've finished one.
start where you are
use what you have
do what you can. arthur ashe
All are really nice projects.. hope you find your road master tank! I sold off my straight bar CWC project and decided to just patiently look for a complete bike.. it was for the same reason, too.. tank seemed harder to find than a bike. Yours is way closer though, and that light is awesome.. another tough piece of that bike to find.
This thread has a little therapy built-in, which is a bonus to the eye candy! I've been beating myself up for starting too many projects and finishing very few... seems I'm not alone, which makes me want to go start a new project to celebrate!!
I've got the Murray boxed up for a trade to A.S.BOLTNUT , but can't seem to ever get it shipped . "This thread has a little therapy built-in, which is a bonus to the eye candy!

" that's what prompted me to start it , your comment of finishing very few .
of course that's not too many , here's another , and I've almost got everything I need for the Roadmaster
