    I said I wasn't going to do it, and well I did.

    I said to myself I wasn't going to do it, but I did and have caught the bug. It's all you people's fault. Especially @Krash lol. I ended up with this. October 1970 Schwinn Apple Krate. I believe it's a coaster model. Since I'm just moving along slowly with the Dragster, and am waiting for the...

    Mini Mystery Muscle Bike

    When Dad bought a pedal car or something (I asked him, but he doesn’t remember) from one of Mom’s friends at her workplace several years ago, this bike was thrown in with it. It was the guy’s own bike he had as a child, but he had no use for it anymore. I hadn’t really paid the bike any mind...

    Steampunk Muscle

    Was going to enter the muscle bike competition, but, one thing led to another and the project stalled out. So, I am just posting what I have done so far and sit this one out. A lot of talent and creativity here on the site, never fails to inspire me.
