    While picking I found a housing for my charger.

    1940's Graco Grease gun unit

    Great work bud!
    It's got a front brake, right?
    And the rear looks like it is set up for a disc

    I'll hear it every now and then just from being around the old garages and auto shops but I've never pulled up to a full service filling station and had the whole experience.

    To be exact, when I started driving the only full service around was when BP fully served up the Gulf of Mexico.

    Did you ever test it out? I think Rob and I are planning a trip soon. Maybe we can make a day of it and drag our bikes down the street.

    You and the Dr. T need to come by!

    The station bell is still in the same box. I haven't done anything with it yet.

    It's done! Used existing holes to keep from drilling.

    Green means full charge.

    Since this is basically a rolling electronic, I figured I'd install a bike lock so none of the neighborhood bays were tempted to give it a spin.

    Only you could have an old spoke lock, and it still works. Pretty cool piece.
