    I don’t even know where to begin. Monarks, Silver kings, Elgins and more!

    I had kind of gone MIA from this site for a few months, I worked for the census and I didn’t have much time for hobbies. This storage unit of 38 bikes and pile of parts found me recently, I plan on selling 99% of it once I sort it all out. The neat thing about this western flyer...

    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!

    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...

    Show Me Your Beater Bike

    I'll start us off with my Grant's department store bike. It was found in a scrap pile by a friend and I've revived it with a nexus 3 and parts from six or seven different bikes.

    What do you do with old chains?

    A waste product of being into bikes is worn out chains. I've been saving them because I feel like something creative can be done with them, however I haven't come up with anything. What can I be making with them? What have you made?

    Strava Groups for old bikes?

    UPDATE: It's called Clunkin' Cruisin' and it's a public group anyone can join I was looking around on that app for a group to join, but they all seem like different versions of serious road bike groups. Do any of you know of a coaster brake or old bike strava group? Do any of you use strava?
