I’ve been thinking about posting these bikes as a group for a while.
It’s an eclectic group to say the least.

That's quite a fleet! Nice work.

Lot's of cool and interesting stuff but believe it or not this one really stood out to me as much or more than most of the others.:)

It was one of my projects in 2011, the year I retired the second time. I did it before getting involved with RRB. It has evolved since this photo was taken. It now has beehive grips, a kerosene lamp, a more period correct saddle and bag. Thought to be a 1910-1915 Peerless.
Thanks.

Indeed. Cool bikes.
Hey thanks for taking a look around!
Quite the awesome collection...I hadn't seen the pre-RRBBO9 bikes before, so that was a treat :thumbsup:.
Some of the private builds go back to pre 2005. Happy to oblige. Thanks for taking a look.
Great looking fleet!
The flask on the Build Off 7 bike is making me thirsty. And curious about the holder...
Thanks, the flask probably violates one of the forum fine print rules for someone. The flask cage I’ve seen in various bike shops. I got mine through the “Twin Six” company.
There's something about a Mazda Flyer bike that makes it stand out among all the other cool old bikes.
I appreciate your compliment. They just never get many build off votes. There are some custom car show award winners in the group and bike show award winners.
Very nice stuff!
Thank you sir, you provided some of the parts as I recall in both groups, especially the Schwinn with the yellow wheels.

I really enjoy your builds, there's a few different styles but they all have cool touches
Thank you, I’ll take that as a compliment any day.
I enjoy coming up with new ways to reuse/recycle stuff. I’m not really stuck on one brand of bike, I utilize what I find and try to be creative with the outcome. Think outside the box.

Wait, did you bring that Evans Colson Special Commander to the El Torreon bicycle swap meet last year? I remember asking about those killer hubcaps while I was there. Actually, I recognize a few of the other bikes you posted here too!

Yes I believe I did, think it’s still in my trailer.
Had several people look at it multiple times up there but no one pulled the trigger.
Glad you made the connection.
Guess I had several of the bikes in this thread at El Torreón.

Cool! I had a booth at that same swap meet, but I didn't sell much either. That was the first time I'd ever been there, but according to the regulars, last year's swap meet was rather lackluster in comparison to previous years.
