    Bought two this week...

    The first one was a bit of a late Valentine's Day gift as well as a bribe from the wife. The second one was just a good deal that came up on CL from a fellow Minneapolis club member. Thanks again Bob if you see this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    1951 Monark Super value?

    I'm in the middle of negotiations on this bike. I just want to get opinions on value. The guy claims to have offers of $400 and $500. Is he way off? It's a barn find and rough but seems complete. Not a piece of chrome is left. The paint seems good less the surface rust. If not seen it in person...

    Some signs I made...

    Not for sale at this point but I just wanted to show off some "artwork" I made for the garage and see how much if any interest there would be if I did start selling them. I could actually sublimate any image. I am also planning some trophies for this years build off. They are vintage ads...

    Hey everyone! It's been a few years since I've been on here and I recently rekindled the old bike love in part to trolling around on here again. So, I started scouring CL for a new project...

    Another tire fitment question...

    I'm somewhat of a noob so bare with me please... I want to buy the 24x2.125 cream tires from Chimi for my RRBO8 bike but I am not 100% sure they will fit. The bike is a 60's 24" Hawthorne twin bar middle weight. I am pretty sure the tires will fit the rear but I am unsure on the front. Anyone...

    Picked these up from CL...I did a quick fab job for them. I built an ice auger mount for an ATV. Cost me about $15 worth of material. What do you guys think?
