    any one here ever use this part on there bike?

    "BE ONE WITH YOUR BICYCLE" Techxmaxx One tangled mess in the back of an Ambulance. The bright side would be that you wouldn't have to ask '...is my bike alright?' while enroute to Hospital to be have it surgically removed.

    You must love your wife very, very, very, very much. That looks like a boat load of work ahead for ya. I look forward to all of the progress pictures and updates. Do you really have any idea how long it will take to replicate Mrs. Fish's 200 year old Georgian Courtyard with resplendent...

    That totally Southern Fried KFC. King Fish Cyclery! that is. By the piece or the family pack! BTW I just learned some shocking Canadian KFC chicken facts this week that some may find upsetting. Colonel Harland Sanders actually lived in Mississauga Ontario..., Canada. So memory served...

    That's a lot of practical cargo space within your fuselage!!!??? The body's profile is reminiscent of an old school slap faced Beetle or Ford pick up glove compartment door. A.similat side hatch idea is golf club doors behind the drivers seat of luxury roadsters of the '30s. A compartment...

    Schwinn? Dan, Go!

    I saw this 'vintage cruiser with springer fork' on the local Kijiji this past weekend while definitely not looking for bikes, parts or projects. The rear brake stays, CCM crank and little white peddles, straight bars and aluminium rims did not deter enough me from looking a bit closer at the 3...

    Hi OddJob, Thanks for the kind greeting and invitation to join in the festivities. Since recently becoming self diagnosed with an extreme case of Chronic Bicycle Attention Deficit Disorder, I think it truly best that that I calmly tend to my current half dozen unfinished bicycle builds before...

    The Kleenex box with a built-in blower is nothing to sneeze at. It's naughty. Valve covers obviously panned out well, so I'll take the liberty to suggest a muffin pan exhaust manifold with dual exhaust/tail light combo. Perhaps a couple of old tapered/flare able leg (or kids baseball bats?)...

    Stray Kat's Ride

    Aahooweee.....Oww... Did you break into a cold sweat and Yodel a bit when you went free stylin' with the Binford 2000 there? The good news is though that some Tequila is now in order to help take the sting away too! ...and it's Saturday. Feel better soon 😊

    Finds up north

    It sure must be nice to have a honey hole or two to visit. I'm thinking your Western Flyer(?) tank bike has a one year only shoulder fork and cast light mount. I forget what year...'39, '40...'uh 41 my best guess. It looks like an ideal new OA Bath Toy. There could be a pleasing original ref...

    First Post!

    Welcome, I'd second Ingola's suggestion of a Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO) treatment as a practical, pleasing finish.you might rub a dab of cooking oil in as example. The '58 Philips also pre dates the Raleigh takeover in 1960 by my understanding. 3SpeedMania is also site/blog? that you'll find...

    Finds up north

    Thank you. The CCM was a lovely, but brief summer fling. It was my Canada Day weekend find and simple rebuild project.

    Finds up north

    Hey Neighbour, Would this fork work for you? I saw your old bike recently as it was in pictures behind a couple of other crusty stored relics that I did end up getting via an amicable online interprovincial exchange. I thought about the Fork/bike, but decided to not pursue more trouble than I...

    What have you been riding lately?

    I recently took the SHARKRUISER on a meandering parts hunt throughout the depths of downtown Toronto. Next on the road was the '52 CCM that I adopted in July. After a recent wheel shuffle in the herd, this old cream puff ended up with my old faithful Shimano 7 speed. Then a short spin...

    Outsiders Ontario B.C.

    The original message reads like a Ride-by Shouting about some kinda secret bike club or maybe it was about riding outside..??? All fired in one long breath like he was being chased or on fire! Maybe they got Him?!! (or Her?!) And that's why there's just been Crickets ever since. I hope he's...

    What have you been riding lately?

    Thanks Matti, the Specialized is a nice all original (aside from new chain, pads, bearing service, tire swap, grips) cruiser. It turned out to be a nicer bike than expected, so I kept it intact for any interested parties, but not many nibbles. I got the bike partly because it had an...

    What have you been riding lately?

    My old Raleigh has seen some recent changes and plenty of fun miles this summer. and the Colson has been reliable as ever. Changes may be in the works again soon. I was thinking that the Evans fork could make the Specialized SHARKRUISER more Sharkey, but I am actually hoping to re-home the...
