Show of your bike by brand or model.
Thanks. I thought there might be hope for this Bike Maniac and his addition. But in the end I signed up for yet another forum. Some nights I am quite busy with all the correspondence from different site. By then I just recall all the great friends I have made over the years in this hobby.
Hope you had a great Halloween.

One day, I happened to notice an unusual old boy's prewar ballooner in the yard of a house I go by quite often. It just appeared there, overnight. I stopped in one day and asked if he'd liked to sell it. He said no, and I asked if maybe he'd like to hear an offer. He wouldn't let me offer, and it sits next to his tree day after day. I didn't get a chance to look at the badge, but I think it was rather rare. I haven't seen another one quite like it. It was missing the rear wheel and the tank, and I think that was all.

There's only one speed and it's CRUISE
Man, its just cold stripping a Roadmaster MTB like that! All those components are so cheap they're worthless! Why even bother except to ruin some poor guy's day? I mean its not like dude had Aerospokes or a Brooks saddle or ANYTHING worth any $$ on a plastic bike he paid $9 for on Craigslist...
I mean really, I pulled a complete one of those out of a dumpster last year, and the only things worth using were the grips and the tubes!
This is freakin' hilarious! What I like is the fact that they were so meticulus, they took the pads off the caliper!

Dragging home rusty old bikes since 1980!
lots of cool bikes!!! i am torn over this though. all these cool bikes, but the owners don't wanna fix them up but don't wanna sell them either. as long as they are wanted for the yard. when i first moved to yreka, i had a 90' huffy stone mountain mountain bike that i parked against the fence and it kinda just stayed there unmoved for years, untill i took it down to my shop to transform it.
I discovered this "Speed" trike in the upper Michigan woods about 20 years ago, strapped it to the roof of my car and it's been a bit of yard art at our place ever since. Cheers
