That would be a nice boating hat 😉

Yep, it's actually a monor league baseball team hat, the Kenosha Kingfish. :D
Look close and you'll see that the fish has a baseball look to it.

Maybe I should get a penant for my bike or shop! :D

Got a set of these old ChopShopCustoms cruiser bars headed my way from @ind-chuckz . I've wanted a pair of these for a while.

I burned out one of my yard sale homemade grinder/polishing motors last year, so I was pleased to score this at an estate sale yesterday for only $10 along with some brand new polish pads.

I also scored this Craftsman tool chest loaded with tools for @Dr. Tankenstein for only $40.

I'm aware. Born a cheesehead
A friend of mine just bought a car from that area. Old Brown Chrysler New Yorker and the license plate literally said cheese.

Picked up this 1940s Huffman/Dayton 24" girls bike in walking distance (12 blocks) from my house. Basically a parts bike. 24" 144 spoke wheelset, cruiser spring saddle, chainring, handlebars, bow pedals, axle adjuster screws, fat 24" fenders, plus a like new foot pump. Worth the walk (couldn't ride it back) and the $20 I spent.

I've used these MASSLOAD butterfly kickstands a few times (including on Uncle Stretch and HEXtreme), so I made an offer of $40 shipped for two of them from an ebay seller and he accepted.

Looks like a good project. And it’s purple, so extra points! Nice fenders too.

What makes it a “motoglide”? A decal? (I’m not seeing any “moto” there.)

One thing I don’t like is bikes that have big high rise bars, and a tiny seat. Where I live it would be seen as a typical goofy mismatched “homeless biker” look.

Also, I have a bucket of those bicycle spoke reflectors. That’s the first thing I take off of a bike when I get it.
