    For a $100 each, you could buy them all and do pretty good parting them out. Drum brake wheelsets front and rear...:nod:.

    edit...that would be $200 shipped via bikeflights...:39:

    I ride Worksmans (Worksmen?) trikes at work. The drums are quite powerful. I've wanted a Newsboy frame for a while. I don't see them in chrome very often. I find it strange that some have that bend just ahead of the BB. I like them better without.
    How funnyis it that they're made a few hundred miles from here, and I'm lusting after a pile in Honolulu.

    I think I've talked myself out of contacting them...but, then again, myself isn't that trustworthy in these situations and is prone to impulsive, and stupid, actions.

    Just have a couple of them shipped to my address, that'll give you more time to make a final decision. I'm glad to help out!

    There's at least one in the pile I'm interested in. The yellow Hummer by Montague. Aluminum frame folding MTB. The components are usually crap, but if you have parts around, they can get pretty cool.
    This guy claims he got his down to less than 20 lbs in weight weenie mode. Pretty sweet for a packable bike! 1573395140.jpg

    I don't know how solid their frames are, but if I had use for a folding bike, I'd be looking for one of those or the numerous clones as the cheapest way into something that doesn't look like a monkey's circus bike (I know it seems that everyone that has one loves their Brompton and I don't doubt they are great at what they do, but I can't get past how goofy they look).

    A pawn shop down the road had a Puma folding bike by Biomega that I could've bought for about $80 bostonbike-ed01.jpg
    But I was afraid I'd break it. And it was a little rough. Needed a good tune-up.

    I'd have picked up the Puma. First thing I thought of was those old Slingshot flex frame bikes. s-l300.jpg Had this little flexxxy section and the spring at the end of the cable: p4pb12526374.jpg
    Are they still available? 29er: large-adpic2-1529658997-6178.jpg

    Looks kind of cool that way. I like the longer old school front fenders.
