Found these old leather saddlebags at a flea market in Glenwood. They are a little smaller than bags I have seen before and will be just great for a bicycle. Not the current build-off bike, but some bike.
Thanks SJ.Making good progress. I can definitely see your vision coming to shape.
Me too Luke, me too! LOLReally looking forward to seeing those timber pieces painted!
Those Deore hollow tech cranks are worth the price of admission alone!Nothing accomplished in the shop tonight (need to come up with a cool name for my shop like Odd Job!), but bike stuff did happen. Picked up a box of miscellaneous bike parts for $40. Modern items like 3pc cranksets, derailleur, 1-1/8" stem parts (no need for them currently), and some like new 700c rims and a new 26" rim. Could come in handy fixing those vintage 10 speeds I latched onto a few weeks ago.

I even had one of these as a young kid. Maybe your bike shed could be called the "handyandy's Tool Set", or just the Tool Set for short. Others.... you are in North Carolina correct? And your name is Andy..... "BikeBerry RFD".
"Gomer's Pile", "Floyd's"; okay so maybe I haven't had enough coffee yet. It's only 5:50 a.m.
