    Next and Kent LaJollas

    I haven't seen too many of them, I always liked them because I thought they looked like a modern cantilever frame, and they are pretty light. This one was my stepdads, that died last year, my favorite color. He got it to replace the Schwinn Santa Fe II. I'm going to throw as much red on this as...

    Walmart Klunkers

    It looks like, at least in Canada that Walmart is selling new klunkers. This guy always does cheap bike challenges with walmart bikes and I'm pretty impressed. I'd definatly want one in black or red.

    What can any of you tell me about a Huffy Koza?

    I picked up this bike to build for my girlfriend and at first it looked like your average 90s walmart bike; ashtabula crank, heavy steel frame, sidepulls, but on further inspection once in the apartment, it has things I don't often see on those old bikes; a 3/7 drivetrain, trigger shifters, and...

    I'm thinking about putting a set I have on my Drifter¹ to go with the 700c wheelset. It's the only bike I have that will fit the bars. Since I got tge wrong size by accident. Show me the money!!!

    Frame types?

    I don't know if it's been discussed before, or if I've asked before, and I haven't seen many mentioned in general conversations, but... I know cantilevered frames, like Cranbrooks, Earth Cruisers, Santa Fes. Which are my favorite. But is there a name for the frame style such as my Drifter¹, or...

    The Black Bike... or Ninja Bike

    I came across this late model Huffy cruiser and decided to try and throw it together. Ironically it replaced my torquois Cranbrook I gave to a friend, to shrink my collection down another bike. A nice black frame and my only complaint is it has a built in rear rack, which I though about cutting...

    Basic rat rod build finished

    I wish I had took more pictures, but it was a Huffy Cranbrook I had for a few years and couldn't figure out what to do with it; low rider, klunker, ???. I ran bmx wheels on it for a few days after I got it, it sat for whild before I converted it to freewheel and put some fliped bars on it. Long...

    Can this be fixed?

    I just picked up a Schwinn Collegiate with a Sturmey Archer 3 speed, it seems as though second gear is gone, I wanted to put this wheel on my rat rod project. Is there a way it can be fixed, or should I just ditch the bike?

    help with future headlight

    last year I found one of those solar powered yard lanterns. I took it apart and noticed it had used AA batteries. I planned on using it for a headlight. Now for the advice: I forgot how I was going to wire it. I think I'll need a three way switch. the solar panel and light sensor needs to...

    Can you drill more spoke holes in a deep V?

    I have a set I want to keep but the rear one needs to have more spokes. THe spokes are arranged in seven groups of four. I was thinking adding about 28 or so more spokes because the wheel isn't really that strong as it is, nor put up with hard city riding.
