    Cool Record player, I have a RCA victor from the 20's, I don't have any pics thou. If the satellite speaker still sounds go I wouldn't modernize it, but if the sound quality is poor upgrade it. Nice Set!!

    Thanks for the input, I'll go buy some paint and give the player a nice rat-tina tomorrow. I like the idea, maybe instead of glueing it to the lid, I could use the sides of the lunchbox with the art on them and cut them out the shape of the side of the phono and glue them on

    Yes it would be possible to power the record player by using a hub generator that puts out 6 volts, but currently don't want to mess with the wiring in the record player. Here is the long waited video. CLICK on the image and it will open up photobucket so you can watch it...

    Can you HELP ID these bikes!!!

    I found these bikes in the garbage, can you help me ID them and get a rough idea of how much they are worth. There is no head badge on this bike, it is a skip tooth sprocket, and has a skinny seat post. This is a Wards Hawthorne with a skip tooth sprocket, and new departure hubs. [/URL

    So here is what I have got done so far, I cut out a piece of metal with the plasma to fill in the front triangle. That way it balances the amount of stuff in the back and the front. I mounted it with balling wire for now and put nose art on it. Here are the pin-up's I used if you can't see...
