    Motomags = gold. So, if you just spent silver or copper...your golden! :grin:

    What’s less the copper?:39:
    But yea, I’ll be holding onto the stingray mostly as is for quite awhile. I got the whole lot for less then what the motomags go for. ‘Twas a great day!!

    I am surprised that the hubs aren't the same color. Apparently, that has to do with hub/brake options...

    Looks like you might need a chain guard. I love the gusset

    That Tempo has had some lower end components put on it by a previous owner.

    For sure. The rear derailleur and brake levers were replaced at some point. Was a cool bike. Wish I had kept the front rack before I sold it.

    Been trying to slow the buying lately, but decided to tag along to the LB swap yesterday. Didn’t need anything, but found some cool stuff.

    Particularly stoked on the nickel prewar schwinn forks with the truss arms. Already installed them on a ‘37 straight bar I’ve been gathering bits for.

    Those look like some great strand/klunker handlebars!
    I love a good swap meet.

    Thanks, I’m pretty happy about them. Nice rise and pull back. A better height then what I have on a current bomber/klunker. No idea what they are. I believe a modern reproduction of 70s moto bars.

    After a long hunt, I finally bagged a MCS Magna Cruise. Full 4130 chromo USA made. No way to really tell the date based on serial, but they were only made from about ‘79-‘82. From what I understand, less then 900 were made.
    It’s a keeper, and will be built with what’s on hand while I search out the wing bars, proper fork and a 6 bolt MCS stem.
