A lady found out I messed with old bikes and called me and said she had a couple of old bikes she wanted me to have since she was moving and didn't have any room for them. They belonged to her late husband and he was a pretty serious bike collector. This is what I found.







Let's see, there is a ladies Collegiate with a gen and speedo. An old balloon Higgins with a rack and tank. A Pixie with solid tires. A W cycles California Shaker BMX. Assorted middleweights and MTN bikes. Even a couple of scooters. Parts including skiptooth sprockets. A nice pair of painted S-2 wheels. Old pedals and seats and several Schwinn cranks. The loose stuff filled up the seat and floor of the truck. Barely had room to drive. Thanks!!!

Here are some more pics. I know absolutely nothing about BMX!



This is how I found it. The previous owner stored the original wheels and an extra set in a box I found in his barn.



I found this bike to be interesting.



Had these brake cables like I'd never seen before.



It must have come from CA?

By the way, here's a pic of the Higgans.



Chad, the 6.2 still shakes, rattles, and rolls. My ride to work everyday. 250K and still gets about 22MPG.

Thanks!!!

I hope that when you die you can still see what is going on for a little while. I would love to see someone try to stick all my stuff in a pickup.....maybe a pickup and a 40' float on an 18 wheeler :lol: :lol: Nice score. Looks like it will be fun just going through it.

i sent a p.m. about the green frame and the black one behind it and have not heard from him Tony
Tony, None of those frames are for sale. I'm in the process of digging up parts for them. Those are this coming years projects for me.

Thanks for the pic Clancy. I'm looking for some tires for it but can't find a size anywhere on whats left of them. I'm thinking that they are 20 X 1.90 maybe?

I've been out of town lately and I'll try to get some pics of some of the other goodies that came in this lot.

Thanks!!!
