Columbia A&W. All torn down now and carefully cleaning..but WHAT'S THIS METAL AFTER DEGREASING ?. Some of you probably have this bike or something close to it. I mean, I've heard of bronze brazing before, but there's somethin' else goin on here.. 'think?

Super paint,super Ride, components are easy not cheesy, whoa, the chrome, you're blindin' me dude. LoL
This bike was completely dismantled , cleaned, detailed , greased, adjusted & I'm gonna tell ya, this is the best riding, shifting bike like...ever (In my top 5 of working on hundreds of bikes).
It clicks into every gear like a s-w*t dream. Don't know anything about it..except Franco is keeping the 80s and 90s alive. :happy: someone has to.

Murray Eagle River. Mountain Bike. '90s

Fresh as in, I had this one sitting around for at least two years now. Forgot about it, finally dragged it out of Shed A. so it's like a new find to me, I was looking into the back of the shed other day and like "what the heck is that" .but ..whuuh' ohhh..look . What's going on? :giggle::giggle: Franco keeps this one racked up on the side and every now and again goes over to zap it with somethin'

Remember at some point today to give thanks...he real heroes, both dead and alive who sacrifices so we can have the fun and freedom to do what we like in our lives. for the luxury to create without hate. Hats' off.

BONUS piC: My Caddyshack. Two freakin ' years I'm after this guy. Don't worry, it was one shot with wee gaff. no writhing, no pain, didn't even know what hit him. How can one varmint cause so much damage ?
O well, he's in critter heaven now.
