    Next up was a cool straight-bar “Columbia-Built” Westfield. Picked this one up in a lot of 4 bikes. Pulled a wheel set from another bike, straightened the fork, tightened up the loose stuff and, SHAZAM!!!... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cleaning up the little shop (affectionately referred to “Somewhere Else” around here) the last few weeks and started taking inventory of frames and parts needed to assemble riders. First up was this old ‘50’s Huffy step-through frame that I’ve been trying to sell for years... I had a spare...

    Any thoughts on this ol’ girl?

    I’ve had this ladies bike for several years and can’t seem to give it away, so I’m going to tinker with it and build a swap meet rat bike. Not that it really matters, but...does anyone have an idea of what I have here? First thought was Schwinn, but the chainwheel doesn’t look right...

    Additions to the Stable...Temporarily!

    Additions to the Stable...Temporarily!

    A friend contacted me about several bikes he has found at a yard/estate sale a while back. He sent pics and he helped me get the deal done. Fast forward to this weekend, I now have them in my possession. Columbia-built Westfield Custom Deluxe - thinking its around 1953... Anyone have a tank...

    '59 Schwinn Wasp Project

    Final touches were completed on Friday night ahead of a Saturday morning departure. FLASHBACK: Back in February at the bike swap, a gentleman had noticed me admiring a little trinket he had for sale. At the end of the show, he approached me and handed me the item..."Here, have it!"...
