    Thanks, I've belonged to that group since I picked up my first Moulton a few years back. Good stuff.

    Picked up this 2000 or 2004 Schwinn Sting-Ray reissue. This appears to be one of the bike dealer reissues and not the wally world versions.

    Love all the tubes on the Spider frame, it's like a mega-mixte!
    And what's up with the fork on the JC Penney? Is it bent, or backwards? Looks dangerous, and not in the cool way!

    The Spyder is basically a 24" version of a Spaceliner frame.
    The Handleborks on the Playbike are bent, but I'll be able to straighten them out

    Yeah, Spaceliner is on The List, but I think I might be able to accept a Spider as substitute. Are the funky bars stock?

    These are Wald Billy Bars (as in billy goat). They were stock on some of the Spyders as well as other muscle bikes. They were Walds equivalent to the Schwinn ramshorn bars. I used a set on Firewing.

    Lots of interesting parts piling up over there. You planning a build any time soon? This place needs the King's style and wit!

    I don't know what these might end up on. I know that I will build something for BO15, but I haven't decided what yet.
