    EZ Speed

    Does anyone recognize the chain guard and spocket on this? It's a 1950 and was pieced together probably in the '70s. I'm thinking it should have a B-6 style.

    EZ Speed

    This winter, I bought this from a family friend. He is 87. In the 60's and 70's, he pulled bikes out of city dump. He's liquidated all the bikes as his balance is poor. This is an 'Our Own Hardware' EZ speed Schwinn variant. I think I'll put more correct bars and rear tire on & a better seat and...

    Born From Junk - Outlaw Origins of Mountain Biking - Cool short film.

    Awesome roots! Can you imagine barreling down those passes on a klunker? Wondering if the oven brazed, mild steel frame would stay intact at high speeds on rock:doh:

    Giants need love too...

    Camping at Loon Lake again (google loon lake cemetery). Last year, i brought my 730 Trek, brought the Boulder this time and am enjoying some single tracking. Even hopping over some "logs" at 51😅. Notice the Madden pack i bought in '85 for Ragbrai.

    Thanks guys! Yes, it was a hardware store in Mankato, MN that put their own badge other mfr's bikes. This one is a Schwinn built, and I've seen Monark's badged as Mahowald on the Cabe. It has a sweet drum brake set up! Kev

    Spaceliner frame, Blast Off!!

    Today, a friend I met in grade school (because he rode a sweet Schwinn SX100), dropped off this frame for me. What a cool dude! I think I'll harvest some parts off something from the same era and ride it. The license is from '69-70, how cool is that!
