    I'm not making an offer on it, but for some reason I'm seeing the Pink Panther in this chain guard? Clearly the '70s and the 80's were good to me. I think. Oh! No! now I'm seeing Chester Cheetah! Whoa! ....! :21: Oh man. Good times.

    FOUND Murray Rat Trap mounting bolt

    A good machinist, a lathe and matching thread die? I'd prefer the McMaster-Carr method myself if I were in a rush to get it done. Otherwise I'd wait and see what the universe, the bicycle gods and a kind enthusiast may provide. You know someone out there has a cigar box full of them. Heck, I...

    GOT PIC.S ?

    Agreed. And this is one of the best forums for posting photos, unlike some others that are stuck in the 20th Century. :grin: So there's really no valid excuses anymore. Photos! Do it!

    looking for some Schwinn parts

    I usually trawl the local thrift stores for parts bikes. Been known to pick up the random Raleigh for rims and Sturmey Archer parts. Sometimes a good seat shows up as well. But I know how it is when we're going for the totally original. It's just gotta be... totally original. It's out there and...

    Funny stuff my wife says... about my obsession's / passion for bikes.

    I get a '41 Schwinn New World. Wife: "That's cool. Where's mine?" I search and search and finally find one in Connecticut. Epic seafaring tale, wherein I take the ferry over to Bridgeport, the guy shows up just as the ferry is closing the gates! I make it in the nick of time. Phew. I get the...

    Jude's finds

    I'm no expert on Whizzers, but I think it's a Whizzer. Notice how the nuts hold that belt pulley at the crossing spokes. It doesn't even use washers. Unless it's an extremely rare bike made by an elusive engineer that managed to forge the belt pulley and calculate the distance from each spoke...

    SOLD 1940s Hawthorne 26 inch tank bicycle

    Wow! What a price! Practically giving it away with those digits. Too bad I'm over here in the Northeast. And it's my old high school alma mater colors, red and black. Go Raiders!
