    FOUND - Bendix Redband Splined Cog

    Looking for something smaller then the 20 tooth cog I already have. Not really sure what other sizes were made, but would be interested if anyone has one. For reference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Brooks leather too far gone to restore? *yes it is!*

    I got this B72 in a box full of other saddles. I’ve considered restoring it, but I don’t have the slightest of how to do it. But before I dive into the world of leather restoration, is the saddles leather too far gone? I’ll post a few more pics in a bit. The frames in good shape, a little crust...

Local museum here in my area, Valley Relics Museum, is having a 30% off sale and that includes their cool BMX shirts from companies that...

    Hello, Anyone have a spot where you get spokes for a good price? I’m trying to buy a few wheel sets worth at the moment. Out here in CA they go for about $1.25 with the nipple. 216 spokes are needed. 216 spokes @ $1.25 a piece = a lot! I’ll even consider buying blanks and cutting and...

    Schwinn Approved Double Clamp

    Anyone seen or have one of these? Were they ever mass produced? I have never seen one, I’d bet that they’re pretty pricey. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Araya Faux-Class Wheels

    I decided to make a false set of Araya Pro Class wheels. Over the years I’ve been drawn to bikes with dimpled rims! I have a few sets of CMC wheels so why not give it a shot. Here’s what I’m starting with. Nice little medium high flanged front hub and a Shimano D-Type coaster for the rear...

    ‘57 Schwinn Straight Bar

    I bought this ‘57 a few weeks ago. It came with a mangled drop out and bent chainstays. I got it all sorted out and straight as my lazy eye can see. I stripped it of the cheap green paint, removed chainguard tabs, primered, paint/sand x3 and a few clear coats. I only reused the rims on the...

    Is it possible? Yes it is.

    Is it possible to adapt these Oval Concepts 520 crankset onto an American style bottom bracket? I got them for free and I have no idea what type of road/mtb bike they came off of or what type of bearing system they even use. In my head I thought a euro adapter to whatever these bearings...

    Couple Cycle Pro’s

    Added another Cycle Pro to the fleet yesterday. I had to bring out my other one for a pic. I really like my coaster Cycle Pro so I’m happy I found a geared one. It is a comfortable cruising bike. I plan on changing it up a little over the weekend and getting a snowflake chainring to match the...

    Photoshop Request

    Can someone please photoshop a 3rd bar on this frame? Thinking it’ll look good as a 3 bar cruiser, but my photoshop skills start and end with Microsoft Paint. Here’s the pic, maybe a couple different angles and the 3rd bar ending where the seat tube and top tube meet. Thanks in advance, I...

    The "Dad" Cruiser

    Now that my kid is turning 1 and ready to go on bike cruises at the beach or on pathways I decided that I wanted to build a full time "dad" cruiser. Specifics I had in mind when putting it together: A bike where her bike seat is attached to full time. Internally geared (not automatic)...
