    Hey guys, I hope this finds you all well. I just wanted to reach out and touch base; I haven’t been online much the past few months. as I currently live in Syracuse, I moved from Florida about 10 years ago. As the housing market was a disaster when we left, we kept the house and rented it...

    Yella’ Ross

    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”...

    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.

    GT Nomad

    Meh; $25 Couldn’t say no. My wife has a Raleigh hybrid with a broken suspension seat post; this will fix it!!!! I’m going to try to put the 700c wheels on my Schwinn Collegiate. Maybe the handlebars too if I can get them to fit. Will try to sell the frame, fork and components to recoup my $25.

    Vintage Peugeot Road Bike

    So, not really a build, although I did build this bike about 15 years ago. Long story short, I scored the bike at a garage sale, tore it to pieces, repainted it, hopped it up and rode the thing across the state of Florida in a professionally sanctioned bike race. I dug it out of my basement...

    Sears WorkMate 200

    So, I’ve used and abused this thing for years. Unfortunately, the jaws / table top were made of particle board and veneer. I leave this thing out regularly and Mother Nature has caught up with her. I tried to buy replacement pieces, but the wood jaws for the Workmate 200 were supposedly...
