    Cruisin in Austin

    I honestly can't get out on a bike as much as I used to, but I still try and I still have fun doing it. Here are some of the cruisin adventures I've had so far: When I first got here in July it was in the middle of a long streak of 100+ degree days, but I couldn't wait to cruise in the fresh...

    I'm in Austin now, and looking for a modern cruiser!

    Hey y'all, sorry I've been out of the loop, but I just relocated to beautiful, sunny Austin Texas, and I'm loving it here so far. This town is wonderfully bike-friendly, and I look forward to cruising all over it once my collection of cruisers gets delivered by the movers to my new apartment...

    I just found out last night that I got a new position at work, which will require me to move to Austin in the next month! Who's down there already? Also, New England friends, I am going to need to clear out some of these bikes before I move, get at me.

    Hey, I'm back! I mean, Ow, my back!

    Hey guys, It's been a while but I thought I'd update the RRB crew. I found out I have a bad back. a combination of genes and years of abuse in the form of working at a computer, poor sleep habits, and riding bicycles (yes even riding bikes) has led to my current condition (scoliosis and...

    RoadMaster Diesel: off the boardtrack and onto the open road

    Hey folks, it's been a while since I've been around. I heard there is a new build-off going on? I have recently resurrected my entry from BBO4, with a freshly-trued rear wheel and a new set of bars. For the Build-Off, I was trying hard to emulate the boardtrack motorcycle look...

    RoadMaster Flying Falcon-Cougar-Thunderbird - on vacation

    I started a build thread for this over the summer while I was still working on RoadMaster Diesel. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=18010 Not much else had happened with it for a while because the nexus-7 wheel I intended to use is out of whack and neither the LBS or my knowledgeable friends know what to...

    General Shipping Questions (I'm clueless)

    Ok, I have a few things I want to sell on here, and what's holding me back is that I am clueless about what stuff should really cost for shipping, and what the best way to go about it was. 1 thing is that the only thing I can really get to on my bike is the post office, anyone think the flat...

    RoadMaster Flying Falcon-Cougar-Thunderbird.

    with extra eagle. Just a mock-up for now. I got the frame and tank from Joe, so I thought it would be fitting to put a nexus-7 on it. It's also inheriting some cast-off parts from my build-off bikes, such as that star sprocket. Much more to come.

    My Big Red Rocket of Love, SOLD!

    This is the bike I bought the day before I joined this site. Here it was when I got it: After clean-up: I didn't do much else for a long time, just riding it as is, a pretty smooth middleweight. Put a lot of miles on cruising and commuting on this rig. I did replace crank, pedals, and...

    30's Rollfast, and 24" Schwinn Speedster

    I was back home in NY again this past weekend. And of course I came back with more bikes. First I found this on my hometown craigslist, way out of town on my way up to Albany, my next stop. It was ridiculously cheap. So cheap I don't even want to say. Kinda thinking about a Manta-Ray...

    some freebies from my brother-in-law

    So my family knows to keep an eye out for old bikes for me, so my brother-in-law has started a pile in his backyard for me of bikes he finds sitting out on the side of the road. They are still there right now, I don't have room to bring them back here, but I took some pictures. I don't really...

    Funny ebay story... oops

    So late last night I was bored and randomly clicking around old bike stuff on the ebay, and I saw a chainring that was a non-skiptooth version of my Roadmaster's chainring. It was only up to a couple bucks with a few hours left, so I put a bid on it and went to bed. This afternoon I get a...
