Show and discuss your non-rat bikes here.
Just got this today. it is a BCA and it was from Bethlehem Pa....my hometown.
I was chasing a dream,but tripped over reality and bust my head on the truth
By the way...A woman with tons of stuff is a hoarder. A man with tons of stuff is a collector.
Cool bike. Cold too, by the look of it.
it's all about the bikes, man. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50053
I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
I think the most strange and unique bicycle I've owned with this one where if you turn handle bars right, the wheel goes left, and same with turning left the wheel goes right. I wish I kept that bicycle lol
Heres a folder, I don't see to many of there around this size, it's a 4 speed.
These things, they seem normal and all but I think it's stange I can't ride it! they make it only for little kids! lol
Racing trike, it was a one piece frame and trike togeather but frame with damaged and I cut it off.
Collector of Raleighs!!
Got this at a bike swap meet. It's a mountain bike 18 speed from the neck back. The front end also has propulsion, through a rowing motion that pulls a cable, which turns the chain. My plan is to eventually put this front end on a cruiser, to help when going up hills.
This is probably my most freakish factory bike. It is a Bi Bici tandem. If anybody knows where I can find another one, I am in the market and I have been looking for a while.
Welcome to Nerdville...
That is a crazy tandem! I've never seen that one before, but that definitely fits the "factory freak" category. I love it.
How about an Auto-Bike? It dont look like a freak, but I guess mechanically it is a freak. it has weights on the back wheel that slide kinda like a governor and it automatically shifts the bike thru one of 6 speeds.
I dont have a good pic of mine, but here's a pic I found on google...
Studying this bike further, how do the rear pedals work? If they're attached solid to the rear wheel or sprocket, the person in back would have to pedal way faster than the one in front. I need close ups!
I posted this a while back when I started my search for another one.
I knew I was buying this bike the moment it blew my mind.
Welcome to Nerdville...
Oh you beat me to it, I have found 3 in the past several months. They work very well, I was suprised.
Some people call me Macgyver
Weird and cool all at the same time!
