    I’m a bi-centennial baby myself. My first bike was a Western Flyer Buzz bike. I remember when in the ‘80’s sportifs became all the rage around here. I’m of the opinion that the Olympics had something to do with that (‘84). Admittedly for the inclines in this area that Buzz would have been a...

    I suppose that this may fit here…

    Grazi. I’ve actually came up with some ideas with some manufacturer (and to a certain extent period) appropriate items that I had laying around. Eventually I’ll post some “progression” photos…

    That reminds me of a funny story. I was in a somewhat upscale part of town and literally pulled up next to Christopher MacDonald at a light.

    Spyder inspired Alpine 5

    Is this the same bike as the Kent made GMC Denali and the Genesis Roadtech? Is it a 14 or 21 speed? I saw the bar shifters and that’s what made me ask.

    Hate to bump an old thread but a buddy of mine and I have been collaborating on a conversion involving a Currie. I can emphasize about the sk8’n. Hey at least we can see where we went wrong the last time, right? By the bye, I’ve a Variflex downstairs. Pics to come.
