    Fever Dream

    When it’s too hot to ride a bike in Phoenix and my hands are idle I get some weird ideas. So I sold my Hawthorne Twin Bar the other day. The guy has all the correct parts for it and will do it justice, so I’ll be keeping my parts that I used to build it. I’ve had this other prewar that I think...

    BO15 Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Schwinn DX build!

    It’s mostly a 61 so it has the Edsel taillights and the 170 straight six. I picked it up at an impound auction a little over a year ago. What kind of comet do you have? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    BO15 Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Schwinn DX build!

    Well I’m sorry for disappearing all this time, my local college had it’s abandoned bike sale, so did a nearby city. I’ve fixed and sold probably about a dozen or so bikes since the market is still hot around here. I’ve also got a full time job with the census so that will keep me busy for the...

    I’m back! Sandman came through and gave me the skirts I need for this bike! I got my bars, seat and tires too. I picked my wheel set too, they’ll shine up nicely. Here are the skirts mocked up on my Elgin Jalopy just for fun The bike market has gone crazy where I live so most of my bike work...

    BO15 Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Schwinn DX build!

    Blasted the forks today! It was a slow but fun process. They’re ready for primer. The place I went for the light was closed because of the virus. No big deal, have one at home that I can modify to mount on a fender. Here’s a nice picture of the real thing since I’m kind of getting bogged down...

    Huffy Good Vibrations came with a persons seat, some with the nose spring and some without. Persons was around for a very long time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    BO15 Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Schwinn DX build!

    All the angles work together, the wheel fits and so will the fender on the springer fork perfectly despite a slight difference in the pivot point on the legs. PVC streamers have been ordered and will be here any day. Next will be wheels, then fender fitting and modification, then paint prep. I...

    Schwinn... and?

    Really not sure but I'd imagine it's missing a cushion and would be some kind of bolt on back rest.

    The springer forks are apart. The two good legs and the good neck will be bead blasted, primed and painted red. Like Frankenstein’s monster a stronger fork will be made from the pieces of these two dead ones.

    BO15 Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Schwinn DX build!

    It’s always easier to buy than build! But I do agree with you, if I can find a set that don’t blow my budget I’ll be all over them.

    BO15 Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Schwinn DX build!

    I’ve had this 1941 Schwinn DX around for about five or six years now and it’s time to do something with it. When I bought this bike it was painted a gross dark gray color, and all the chrome was painted a light gray color. I was going to rat it, then I was going to make it a little shiny and...

    Prewar Schwinn Excelsior

    I bought my oldest Schwinn yet. Late 1930s Schwinn Excelsior. I plan on rebuilding it and making it rideable as is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Schwinn?? Year?? Model?? Help

    No cable at all, it shifts when you kick the pedals back. There is probably a YouTube video showing how these work, they’re very unique. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Schwinn?? Year?? Model?? Help

    You’ve got a bendix 2 speed kickback hub on this bike, that’s a score. This would be a good start for a rat bike. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Trying to ID this roadster

    Some of the hardware looks like a newer design, I would venture a guess this is a “flying pigeon” variant or something along those lines and is from China or maybe India and was not intended for export. Cool bike. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    1939 ct1 cycle truck

    Cycle trucks have gone crazy these last few years and are worth a multiple more than cruisers of the same era. The CABE is a great source for finding the value of more expensive prewar stuff.

    Zenith Bike. ID help

    I could probably get $180 or so in southern AZ, but it would take a while to sell. None of the parts are particularly valuable so I’d keep it together and ride it, especially because that tall frame is pretty rare. I think linseed oil could work magic on that paint.

    Show off your baskets!

    Here’s another bike I sold about 6 months ago that had a ratty basket. I was told this is now hanging in a casino in Tucson but I haven’t been and I’m not sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Show off your baskets!

    Show off that shamelessly utilitarian addition to your bike. Steel, wicker, wood, plastic, all are welcome. Here’s my ugly basket: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
