    Drag bike

    Ever since I was a kid trying to customize bikes, "more longer more better" was the rule for handlebars and forks and chrome is king. Over the past year or so I've been accumulating parts for a dream bike. I still haven't picked a frame for it but I am going to try to use these parts on it...

    It's very blue

    Any idea what this is? It's posted locally for $125 CDN. The color is giving me pause but if it's a reasonable bike I might try to do something with it.

    1948 Columbia Goodyear Marathon

    My initial intentions were to get a bike built for the spring, but my basement is too crowded and my garage is too cold to get much done over the winter. Here is the starting point for this project: So far it's been torn down, cleaned up and given a coat or two of turtle wax that has given...

    Columbia Springer Fork

    I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a Columbia springer fork I recently purchased on ebay. From what I understand it is missing a couple of pieces. If anyone has any details or pics of a complete fork I would greatly appreciate it. Here are a few pics from the ad on ebay.

    Hello from the great white North

    Hi all, I have been on the form for a little while now, so I figure it's about time I introduce myself properly. I' just getting back into the hobby after a long hiatus. As a teen back in the 70's I was an avid cycle customizer and mechanic. I had built a few choppers, and a nice stretch that...
