    Murray Street Machine and some others

    I didn't even look at the tire size.. but it does look like a set of 24" on a 26" frame now that you mention it.. I'll have to look tomorrow.. the rims (at least the rear) are Komet on it and thanks for the info on the street machine... or as i like to call it.. the knee bruiser.. i am way to...

    Murray Street Machine and some others

    not usually my cup of tea (I own two bikes with derailleurs now ;) ) but for the little cash they wanted for it I couldn't go wrong. Got it home and saw it has a double grip rear drum break on it. Also, I have never seen a 2 speed bike where the chain adjusts on the front crank instead of the...

    New Bars!

    That was/is my original hope. The ability to actually lean forward with my forearms on it like a regular steering wheel. It's a scary feeling now... pretty sure it has more to do with the springer front end than the bars tho Found out if I grip right where the bars meet( 9 and 3o clock lol), I...

    New Bars!

    It's actually more comfortable than it looks. Turning is touchy with a slight tendency to feel like it wants to "flop" side to side, but does not. Hoping I'll just get used to that feeling and it will be a bit more of a relaxing ride for me haha Thinking of taking the top bar to the local...

    Mystery BMX rims

    I was originally thinking wheelchair when I first saw them, but it looks as though the hubs are built different like one is supposed to have a gear on it. The wheel that is missing the axle is built different than the one with the axle if you look at the pic of them side by side you can see it...

    Mystery BMX rims

    74 SubUrban with mystery rack

    just picked this up, no plans as of now except to lose the baby seat on the bay of E's can not figure out the front rack, which broke off already at the welds, except it looks as though something may of slid on and off for convenience.... maybe a basket you could take shopping or whatever...
