    RRB meets by states? chapters?

    I've been absent for a while so I hope no one has posted a topic on this lately. A while back, there was talk of a RRB show or rat-a-paloza where we could all get together, hang out, and of course, ride. If I remember right, at the time we had like just over 1000 members. So we were few and far...

    Rustic Hawthorn

    This is a old Hawthorn that I saved from going to the scrap yard. It was considered using for last years build off but the "999 Racer" was another story. I've got a few rusty parts lying around so this is as rat as it gets. Here's the frame that I paid $1 for. And the pile of parts, rusted 72...

    Winter riding tips.

    I've thought about what stinks about riding in the cold and what to do for it. More of us would ride in the winter if we armed for it. My eyes water like crazy in -10* (that's COLD too :shock: ) so I'm getting snowboard goggles. I have a cheap Carhart copy coat and pants that I'm gonna spray...

    People driving with a cell phone shoved up they're head are gonna hit me yet, so a helmet looks better all the time. No plain wal-mart helmet for me. I've always wanted a German WWII helmet, chrome of course :mrgreen: Some arn't DOT approve but I'm not going 45mph either. Check 'em out...

    New rides

    My wife goes garage saling quite a bit, so I told here to keep an eye out for old bikes. Got this Western Flyer for $10 and is in good shape, the seat isn't original but it's comfy :D The girls Huffy was for $3, has a 3-speed. I'm seeing a Uncle Strech treatment in it's future.

    16x3.0 tubes N/A, I don't need 'em!!

    Got a 16in schwinn chopper free and it has a flat, no biggy. But after a search of part sites, I turned up nothing. Then an idea came to me at work, run 2 16x1.75 tubes side-by-side and drill 2 holes 180* on the rim. Kinda tough getting it together but it's good to go! I also only put 30psi in...
