    Thanks! I wanted to toss it, but I knew I’d never use it anywhere else. To me, it stuck out like a sore thumb on the bike as I got it. So, I went all in with the yellow bars and tires to try to make it less obvious and blend all the yellows together and make the colors on the bike flow. I...

    Thanks Verrt! I’m a huge fan of colored tires, but you definitely need to be careful. There’s a super fine line between nostalgic or unique cool and tacky!!!!! My summer build off bike, the grammaw patina bike, I wanted to do blue tires.... I thought it would be just too much and went the...

    Meh.... getting closer. Even though I’ve been off since Monday, I’ve been super busy and have not had much time for bike projects. (I have got all my workouts in and got in 25 miles early this afternoon!) I putzed a little on this guy. Mocked up the front wheel. Got the bars flipped..... I...

    More current pics; the detail wash is done. Although, I’ve just been letting it sit out on my patio to get rain and sleeted on! I hope to spiffy this up maybe the day before thanksgiving. Maybe I can snag a Black Friday shopper!

    So, not really a build, but a spiffy in a jiffy. I scored this super clean old Ross Eurotour5 for a $10 spot a month or so ago. it had a flat and dry rotted rear tire, but other than that, it looks pretty good. I really like colored tires, so after 2 mis-orders (due to awkward ISO size 26”...

    I haven’t been too productive on this thing.... I ordered some additional pinstripes for the green wheel areas, but they never came in!!! Got in the bottom bracket, headset cups and crank and chain ring in.

    So, looks like we’re running out of days here for others to take the challenge!!! I’m not grinding like I was, but still grinding. -with the shorter days and daylight savings, I’m pushed to do my weekday rides in the dark. (And cold) here’s tonight’s ride on the west shore trail (the back...

    CL curb alert!

    $0.00 the Raleigh is fully functional. Needs a good wash, scrub and lube. Front brake cable was seized. I got it loosened up.... need to get it moving a fuzz better. the road master needs a lot of help. Will probably just keep the wheels and tubes, strip some parts and chuck the frame.

    Got me some big and little’s! I’m going to dress up the rubber/ sidewalls with some sort of lettering -also, you can’t really see in the pic’, but there is some overspray on the spokes.... gotta get that off.

    Decals came out good. The vinyl was super thin..... and super sticky!!!! Fortunately I had worked with large vinyl decals before and knew how to use the windex and squeegee to easily position and flatten out.

    Agreed.... I hear you. sometimes I get caught up doing stuff and don’t let up. I didn’t want to sink 5-10 hours into making the decals..... $15 and I’m done and can move onto the rest of the build. I’ve got plenty of time into painting the wheels and adding the green to the frame, forks and...
