    My wife's Fire Cat...

    A few years ago I bought a Murray Fire Cat locally...mostly because it had Huffy rims and tires on it :D My wife saw it and said she liked it, and wanted me to restore it for her to ride at swap meets and stuff.

    You have to love a good day at the bike shop...

    Went down to grab some bolts I needed and the owner had this little bugger he found...a Huffy Twin Stick! Not mint, but definitely usable. Both sides work, the plate for the Park Brake side slides right over and back :D

    Otasco Drag-o-o-o-n Decals...

    Got a call from Bruce Crawford the decal guy up here in Ohio, he needed an Otasco Drag-o-o-o-n decal stencil for a guy in Texas restoring a bike.

    Hangman Noose Sissy Bar PSA...

    This little guy here is NOT a used Hangman Noose. That is some sort of repop the seller made. The noose is all wrong, the point at the top is too, as well as the mounting holes on the bottom. Those mounting holes are way off actually. So don't spend your money on this...

    My friend's original Polo Bike!

    I went out to see my bike shop owner friend today for lunch. When I was there I mentioned that I told his story about the Murray with the solo polo seat and hi rise bars. He said "Did I show you the picture of that?" He hadn't, and sent me this! He said his dad took that bike right out of...
