    Found: matching pair of 24" x 2.125" black tires

    Looking for a pair of 24" x 2.125" tires, preferably black with no white walls, but I'm open to all options. None of the local bike shops have any in stock right now, and while I've seen a few different options on eBay and Amazon, I've grown a bit more... skeptical of buying from either site...

    Title sums it up. I'm trying to find the origin of the... I believe it's a Schwinn double straight bar, with a vinyl tank and a springer fork made out of what appears to be 2 regular Schwinn forks. I was hoping to see how the springer fork was put together. Any and all help is greatly...

    Does anyone here have any information about these Mattel V-RROOM! and Sears Hot Rod bike motors? I'm thinking of getting one for my MBBO trike, but I need to know a few things first, mainly the dimensions, and what I might expect to pay for one of these.

    Huffy "Black Magic" Muscle Bike

    Saw this bad boy posted in Yukon, Oklahoma for $500. Can't say I've heard of this bike before (still new to the hobby though,) and I don't know if $500 is fair or not, but it sure looks cool! You can find it here.

    Should I go for it, or just let it sell?

    Well, I wasn't planning on entering the Muscle Bike Build Off this year, as I didn't have anything that'd work for the competition. That all changed just a few hours ago, when I found these 3 bikes for FREE on Facebook Marketplace! 1 of the 2 Mountain/Road/Track bikes are probably going to be...

    Looking to buy or trade for a 1960s/1970s Schwinn Town & Country Tri Wheeler conversion rear axle, or something similar.

    Has anyone made a trike out of a Sears Flightliner/Spaceliner bike?

    Well, ever since I chose to put a hold on selling/trading my stash of unused bike stuff, I've decided to have fun with the stuff I previously had no interest in. I already took the bent up Hawthorne frame I had planned to get rid of and turned it into a keeper, but now I'm debating on what to do...

    Are we allowed to redo bikes we built in prior Build Offs? I wanted to do a whole lot more to my bike, Dumpster Diamond, but due to a variety of issues, I had to scale back my plans for this bike.
