    1982 Mongoose Resto

    Just wanted to share my 82 Mongoose project. My aunt found this at an old house she bought to flip. Here is what I started with. I pretty much kept all the original parts that were on the bike when I got it. The cranks were bent so I had to find replacements. The stem also appears to be a...

    1970s Raleigh 3 speed "Pub Hopper"

    My brother picked this up after we spotted it on CL with another almost just like it for $40. The other bike is complete but in a few pieces and has a lot more rust. This one came with the handle bars off and a modern road bike style neck on it. I removed that and put on a BMX style stem with...

    Lines Bros Tri-Ang "Fairy Cycle"

    So far I have been able to determine that this bike is from London made around the mid 1920's. Tri-Ang was a toy manufacture that made all sorts of toys not just bikes. There is no serial number on the bike that I can fine. I would love to restore this bike but the wheels are solid...

    Stingray????

    At first I thought it was a Stingray but the more I compare it to actual Stingrays the more skeptical I am. The gooseneck and forks don;t look authentic.
