Been away for a bit.
Up to recently I have continued being a mid 60s Tanklight collector but, years ago I moved my efforts reviving 1920s 50s heavyweight American made bikes.
I've been fortunate to find and make as close to all OG factory bikes.
I don't do much rationing because I like all original.
Have even jumped onto the rearsteer tandem revivialist.
Am glad to be back and searching for thise relics that fall within the parameters of original.
I in no way give all the correct answers but, my research has been through if possible.
I'm wrong more times than correct so, fair warned.

Fell free to reachout and I'll do my best to help.
Health issues (below the knee amputation less than couple of weeks, has halted my present riding ability.
But am amped to be rideable again.

Anywho, I'm in Norfolk Va.
Contact me best thru my email if I can help.

Or call/text me at 757-613-2334
Here is a few of what I've collected and added or sold from collection. And these pictures only takes me back a couple years

"It's all about the tanklights" and the heavyweights
and now bringing them back to rideable again without painting or adding aftermarket parts.

Again, thx to the admin for letting me show off again.
JD

Good to see you back here JD. Sorry to hear about your health issues.

Here's a rescue that JD found and I ended up with after changing hands once before it made it to me.

Some of you might remember it as the TRM convertible 'Blackbird'.

An awesome build. Glad my find went to a dedicated fabricator like yourself.
If I had me way, the Blackbird would in my collection.
Is it for sale by the way?
"It's all about the tanklights "!

I am still interested in the gender from female to crossbar conversion options to modify on a gender change heavyweight.

[email protected] is best to contact me.

And yes thx for doing what you do.
