LOVE this ! !
BEFORE YOU START POSTING - Tell us a little about yourself.
Here are some updated pics. I added a crusty headlight to my crusty Ross. I have another shiny, near mint Royce headlight for my Lil Chik, but I've been unable to find a bracket.
My Ross (pre-headlight) and my Lil Chik.
My Ross after installing the headlight.
Close up of said crusty light.
This is my Royce Union. I'm thinking blue/silver striped glitter banana seat?
Any my Murray High Jinks. I swear I rarely ever see these. I'm thinking solid red tires. And red pedals.
Ocilla is in south Ga way down south
Big Dawg Eliminator
Very cool! Deep southern Georgia! Gorgeous!
It was stormy outside. So we opened the garage door and worked with our bikes and then rode them in the rain. Bliss.
And hubby got me an original Schwinn dynamo set! i just need to research how to install it and make sure it works.
I'm a little late on the welcome ... but Welcome
The lights in the first post, the light on the stick looks like a delta brand light from the lens they made boat marker lamps as well as bicycle lamps, I've never seen one on a bike but anything is possible. They were usually battery powered though, was the front lamp wired ?
The generator uses the bike as it's ground. There's a little phillips head screw that helps it make contact with the frame so you dont have to scrape the paint to make a good contact. The 2 wires that go in the bottom of the generator are both positive polarity, one to the headlight and one to the taillight.
Great looking wagon too.
Thank you! I am a die hard dubber. I built my bug from a bare bones shell and a mistmatched pile of parts. I have an entire build thread on the Samba. Heck, I even have my original VW key pattern tattooed on me. If anybody is interested, here's the link to my build thread which I keep updated at all times. Considering you never stop building a Volkswagen.....

I saw the squareback at a local show. I started working on my hot rod husband to turn him into a dubber. He's been with me from the start with my bug and even had a bug when I met him. A few months later we brought it home. Original papers and all. Both of us and even our son love old cars, bikes or well, pretty much all good old vintage stuff. But, here's the queen of the Addiction with Wheels collection....
