    Hawthorn Tank Bike

    Just got this from a friend. Been wanting to make a klunker and am thinking of using the frame. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't worth beaucoup bucks before I do that. I'm muscle bike guy so I don't really know the tank stuff. I'm guessing it's pretty run of the mill tank bike but I dunno. Any...

    Picked up a few Muscle Bike parts recently!

    Sorry to hear about the robbery but my brain is still looking at that cache and going "hamana-hamana-hamana" If that is the definition of "a few parts" than I might be a few parts short of complete bike figuratively speaking of course. :bigsmile:

    Huffy "The Wheel" help needed

    @CRASH Yeah, I figured a black knob from a 333 shifter would be close enough and easier to find than the correct one. And yes a smaller seat on it right now. About to put the cheap new Taiwanese one back on. This bike still needs plenty to be correct but I am much happier now that I got the...

    Huffy "The Wheel" help needed

    Coming along... Got the double red band tires and correct front wheel a few months ago. Also got the correct drag brake lever sans the knob. Fenders, sissy, and seat are still incorrect. Would love to find a black 333 shifter knob, correct fenders, etc...

    Sting-ray windshield repops?

    Has anybody ever repoped the sting-ray windshields? Of course, I want one for my Fastback but don't feel like paying $300+. Does anybody here have one they could make a tracing of on paper for me? I could probably figure out how to fab one from plexi pretty easy.

    (MBBO#05 Class 1) 1965 Columbia Playboy 88

    Sorry I am dragging on this rebuild guys. Getting the ol gentrification boot out of my current commercial space and having to move my sign shop and bike stuff into a new studio. Should be getting to this towards the end of the month. In the meantime here is a page from a Columbia flyer I got at...

    (MBBO#05 Class 1) 1965 Columbia Playboy 88

    I found this on craigslist about a year ago and been keeping it in my basement until had the time. Looks like the time is now! Looks good from a distance but up close is another story. But it looks like it should clean up good. Rust isn't tooooo bad. I wiped a small area of the...

    (MBBO#05 Class 2) GET SMART!

    For a city bike that is a really cool frame. The ones here in Boston look especially stupid. Kinda reminds me of the rollfast/hawthorne muscle frames
