    Someone left some partial bikes in my driveway today. So with a little mix n match I cobbled together a roller...
    The teal ladies is a Columbia with some neat stepped rain gutter style fenders in chrome and the gray Raleigh was mostly there. So the chrome found a home on the gray bike and I dug up a skinny 26 x 1 3/8 wheelset with a Bendix coaster for it and there ya go a roller. The fat butt seat is comfy and with a decent set of grips instead of the foam junk it'll be a fine loaner for the next cruise.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I did a remix today. Striped the Raleigh and rebuilt the Columbia step thru coaster cruiser. Added an old seat I recovered... Think I'll rescue a basket from the boneyard and call it macaroni...[​IMG][​IMG]

    That blue frame has some strange dropouts.

    That's a junk Huffy that someone welded some extensions to. Total pig of a bike weighs about half a ton. Definitely scrap.

    Well I keep fooling around with this ladies Columbia... I'm keeping my eyes open for some nice colorful vintage grips. I do like the pink basket I've been hanging on to for some reason.[​IMG]
    At some point I need to get back to the MBBO going on right now...
