    Hawthorne Twin Bar (2)

    Guys sorry I've been absent for a while but life's been busy. Still is actually but I started checking out the build off and got some motivation to start putting together a bike that's been sitting around for about a year now. I got this Hawthorne Twin Bar last summer. I felt like I had a...

    16" Higgins Build

    This won't be a true build post as I've finished the bike before starting the post, but I did take some shots along the way and will post some now. I put this together for one of my nephews. I did another one a few years ago for a different nephew and he's really into the bike so hopefully...

    steering tube thread size?

    Most bikes seem to take the same size hardware at the top of the steering tube. Does anyone know what thread/diameter size this is and if dies are available? I would like to extend the threads slightly on a fork instead of cutting and shortening and rewelding the steering tube if possible...

    I've looked at the site for at least a year. I'm still not sure I will have much to add but I do like old bikes and tend to prefer the customized ones to the others. My collection is around two dozen bikes, pretty varied from pre-war to some StingRays to a few rats. I have kids so like both...
