    My lady and I have had an eye out for a tandem, for a little while now. Finally found one that is in proper condition and, to be honest, to her liking. After all she does have the final say... :oops: (on this one!) It's a '71 Schwinn Twinn single speed. After I loaded it into the truck, I found...

    Finished "On A WIMH"

    So here it is. This was my first go at a Build Off, and I have to say it was a lot of fun! Not only putting together my bike, but seeing the others do theirs. We're always amazed at the talent shown by the members! I'm glad I took part in this Build Off, and hope to do it again! blah, blah...

    If it ain' broke, don't fix it.

    There are so many people taking old road frames and converting them to fixed gears. While I enjoy the clean lines and simplicity of them I don't see the functionality as a daily-use machine. So I built a bike that has the look and well... brakes! I just 'finished' a 70's Fuji road frame. When I...

    I broke down and built a fixie...

    ... however I am waiting on the freewheel cog, I just couldn't wait any longer to ride it, since I got the wheels in the mail last week. So, here are the before and after shots. I think its a 70's(?) era bike. It was originally a 10-speed Fuji, now its a 1-speed Fuji. Haha. 3 Fuji Side by...

    6 for the price of none.

    It was a good week for me and free bikes! Since last Sunday I got, at no cost, 6 bikes from local folks who no longer had a need for them. I got 4 from one older gentleman who was having a garage sale. No bikes were in sight, but I asked if he had any. He replied that his kids had long since...

    Changed the look, again. What do you think?

    I was itching to pick up a wrench, so I tweaked the look of my Murray. Nixed the apehangers, tilted the fenders back, and lowered the seat a little. I also took off the front generator and added another 6v to give the headlight all 12v it asks for. BEFORE: AFTER:

    Radio Flyer

    So I remembered I had this old Radio Flyer 80 wagon rusting to heck in the backyard and thought "Why not?" ...It'll need some new tires as the original hollow plastic ones are shot, but it should look nice with a little work. And the paint and weathering match the bike well. What do you think?

    1st Post from The North Bay

    Hi All. Just dropping a quick hello. My name's Elliott. I live in Santa Rosa and just stumbled across this site. So I am new here, but I'm not new to customizing bikes. When I was a kid I remember taking a wheel from my scooter to put on the front of my Huffy. Had that thing raked! The gallery...
