Just wondering how everyone ended up in this hobby. I see a lot of you also do cars and motorcycles. I do the bikes in place of cars and motorcycles. The wife and I have enjoyed mtn and trail riding for some time but at home in Kansas our multi spd MTBs seemed like overkill for just cruising around the flat streets of our city. 3 or 4 years ago we decided to look for some old antique bikes to ride around on but weren't finding any and I got impatient. We went to Target, Kmart or somewhere and bought some new cruiser style bikes and kustomized them. Shortly after this we started coming accross old bikes and friends were also finding them for us and... well then things got out of hand. These are the first bikes we did. I think the boys was a Huffy and the girls a Schwinn. About the only thing used from the original bikes were the frames. They received a powder coating and all new components.
