    Apple Cider Special

    Sounds like an interesting idea. I'm not quite sure I understand it, but I look forward to seeing how you pull off this collapsable rack.

    1958 Schwinn "Convoy"

    Yeah, I never trust a kickstand to hold up a bike when it's windy out, especially not where I live in Oklahoma.

    Has anyone made a bike out of unwanted spare parts?

    I wouldn't be able to steer the darn thing if I did that, not in my neighborhood at least. Heck, it took me a few test rides to figure out how to steer it without my knees getting in the way of the handlebars as they are right now.

    Purple bikes.

    I've seen one of those 7 inch reflectors on Marketplace a couple weeks ago. I've been thinking about getting it, but I don't have the bike to use it on right now.

    Has anyone made a bike out of unwanted spare parts?

    My RRBBO15 entry was this kind of bike. Most of the parts were all in my "sell/trade" pile, including the frame. I bought this bike for $20 at a swap meet in 2019, and it wasn't until I brought it home that I realized why I must've gotten it so cheap; it was bent, quite substantially. When I...

    POISON APPLE: '79 Schwinn Fair Lady Trike

    Ok, I've got some more photos to share today. First, the new front wheel and tire I got earlier this week, on the right. While the color of the wheel may be different, the shape, size, and chrome hub matches the other two wheels. The front tire is a 24" x 1.75", while the two rear tires will be...

    POISON APPLE: '79 Schwinn Fair Lady Trike

    Minor update, but I just typed up a task list to help me organize what's left to do to get Poison Apple done on time. The task list is liable to change, and just because I ordered it a certain way doesn't mean that's the order in which things will be done, but it'll help break down the remainder...

    POISON APPLE: '79 Schwinn Fair Lady Trike

    Okay, I still haven't figured out what exact graphics I'm putting on the tank and chain guard just yet, but this is the overall flavor I'm going for on my final design for this trike. Hopefully, I'll be able to start sandblasting and powder coating parts on Friday.

    POISON APPLE: '79 Schwinn Fair Lady Trike

    Ok, got a new front wheel that actually matches this time. Spent a little on it than I would've liked at $10, but I've payed more for wheels before. Ran out of daylight for photos, but I'm planning on shooting more either tomorrow or Friday.
