    Trek Cruiser classic

    I often thought a few of the Trek cruisers had potential for being made into something cool when we would get them in BITD... That one has a nice fork! Knobbies, Surly Sunrise handlebar, drum front brake,.... (Just thinking out loud... ;) )

    any shooters in the group??

    An unchanged reminder of the good ol' days. That Marlin 60 is the kind of gun we used to keep on the rifle rack in the rear window of our trucks, parked on the main streets of Western Colorado, unlocked, windows down, keys in the ignition, and never gave it a second thought!

    any shooters in the group??

    One of my favorite Youtube gun guys, 'Mixup98' has a good (positive) video on the 60. Sounds like a great value, and probably an even better value second hand!

    Reviving Track Racing?

    A 30 degree saddle provides "greatest thrust." Who knew?

    Store your used bike parts...

    I started using old file cabinets after seeing a pic of somebody else's storage. He used to be around here, into klunkers. "41DX" or something? I think. Watch Craigslist and you can often get them for free, in the digital age they have no real value and folks are usually just glad to be rid of...

    Reviving Track Racing?

    I seem to remember seeing something about British riders making craters from WW2 German bombings into banked dirt bicycle racing tracks after the war... (?) Oh, here it is. "Cycle Speedway". Not craters, just tracks through the rubble of bombed cities in that era. Well, I was close... ;-)...

    Electra "klunker style" kids bikes...

    Not meaning to spam or anything, but I was just browsing closeouts on the Electra dealer site and the 20" Moto 1 and Moto 3i are marked down. WAY DOWN. Still pretty good availability if you want your dealer to check on getting one for you... ;-)

    Pre 1948 Schwinn DX

    As to your question- I wouldn't worry about doing with it as you please. Very cool, not very valuable as a collector bike. The perfect combination for some RRB fun! ;-)

    Schwinn Excelsior help !!

    Yeah, I pretty much just think 'prewar' or 'postwar' when it comes to Schwinn frames... ;-)

    Another new Klunker style cruiser...

    Maybe already posted, but I just saw this: "RevMX" from Sun bicycles. If the decals aren't clear coated it might be good raw material for a 27.5" Klunker project. Should retail south of 300 bucks...
