    My Elgin Motor-Bike.

    Glad to see that you're riding the bike that I sold you. If I remember correctly, it's a mid 1930s. - John

    Ides of March

    My buddy Scott, Tailhole, has been encouraging me to join the build off. It sounds like a lot of fun so I'm signing up with my 1955 Schwinn Flying Star. The bike has some great patina and a Bendix Multi-Speed, which is a two speed...not a kickback. Plus, I recently learned that we share the...

    How to preserve that slightly rusted weathered look?

    I've been using Boiled Linseed Oil, which can be purchased for about $10 at Home Depot. Here is a picture of a bike where the frame, fork and rear rack received one coat. Thanks, John

    Cool find. Here is a photo of a Western Flyer tandem we had last year, which appears to be a pretty similar frame. I personally believe the WF frame had a few design flaws, creating a very unbalanced ride. Hopefully you have a much better bike and experience. We ultimately sold the WF...

    We circled back to pick up one more bike. It appears to be a 1940s Elgin. What do you guys think? I looked at the catalog ads. With the exception of the sprocket and handle bars, it looks like some type of deluxe model. All feedback is appreciated :)

    These are not "fresh finds" but we picked them up during January. After 3 days, about 1,200 miles and looking at 500+ bikes, we brought back 10 of them. My friend Blu, the guy on the left, acquired a Schwinn Cadillac, Hawthorne from the 20s and a Schwinn DX. My favorite prize was the green...

    Hello from Denver

    My name is John, and I live in Denver, Colorado. I really enjoy riding and working on older bikes. At this point, I have about 10 bikes that include a 1950s Schwinn Town and Country Tandem, some light and middle weights, and some fairly new mountain and road bikes. Plus, I picked up an old...
