    What bike did you ride today?

    Really enjoying SKPC's ride evaluations of his rides. Thanks for posting, Such a beautiful day here today...took my quietest ride out to the harbour ferry terminal in Brentwood Bay. Not many of these Rocky M onezie bikes around. Geared 44/22 - low I know, not riding it fixed, but got me up...

    Road the BSA folder up to the small Veteran's ceremony at our Pioneer Park. Leaned the bike by the band stand. The bike generated interest from some attendees. 6 WWII fighters also did a flyover. No cannons or rifles were fired at this location.

    Thankyou so much for linking the flyer/poster. I like your repro tire idea but it would be hard to justify without guaranteed sales like a prepaid custom order. The size is so specific. I'm hoping this post will also discuss the pumps, tool pouches and lights among other rarer additions found...

    Curious about those massive plates on the road in your 7th image. To support an excavator or crane maybe?

    Congrats for taking on this project. Your post is quickly becoming the world's largest collection of folding BSA images. I know of several unrecorded in this area (but not for sale) and will try to get photos/#s. Thank you again! Kryn

    monark head set.

    Cool project! Had the same issue with my '53 Monark frame build. Got a couple headets and combined them to make a fit...but I see there are a couple 'oldschool' headsets on ebay right now that are made to work as long as you go threaded....it gets trickier to convert to threadless. No help at...
