    Hobby money

    Both daughters are getting driver's licenses this year. I managed to sell a couple projects and grabbed them both the cars they wanted. Kate suggested I give my spare car to my oldest before I had a chance to ask her. Not bad since I technically haven't been working since March. I managed to get...

    E-Stay Rider

    Maybe I can get rid of this thing if I turn it into a bicycle. I would put antlers on it and a red nose and stab it into the yard at Christmas to irritate my neighbors

    Distracting yourself instead of hawking these polls

    Anyone else finding it really difficult to resist peeking at the voting thread twenty times a day? I am thinking a bike packing trip until next Thursday. There is a rails to trails trailhead near my house that goes all the way past Texarkana. I figure if I leave now I wont have service until I...

    Swap meet withdrawal

    I just pulled up to the house and thought man it's a shame nobody else is here this looks just like a swap meet. I am cleaning out the garage and found a ton of cool parts I have no use for. A couple cool bicycles I really want to do something with but I will never make time to ride. Then I...

    Lake Charles

    Does that look like a Murray or a Huffy. It kind of looks like the pointed drop outs but it kinda looks like a Dayton chain guard I think it's been standing out there all night.

    Worksman rear drum

    I am looking for a rear drum to match this worksman front. It's been six years and Skully is finally starting to break spokes. I'd like to build a much stronger set so I can take advantage of the fact he cruises at 50 plus. Even just that hd hoop would help I could just order spokes. Or if...

    Skully needs new spokes

    When I built these wheels I knew they wouldn't last forever. I would like to replace them in 24" with thick bricks but I would be happy if I could find a matching rear wheel for this worksman front. Anyone know where I can find one or should I just order new spokes?

    B-6 Just a rustoration, ( the last word on oxalic and other organic acid rust removal)

    Something to keep me busy. I went barnstorming and brought one home to clean up for Charlie. It's a good candidate for a chemistry demo. I will probably make a live video of the acid bath. I can't think of a better way to show you guys how it should be done. We'll see. The rack is missing a few...
