    Good Finds “Again”

    That green and orange Roadmaster Wedge is sweet.

    Honnapaloosa swap meet

    Thanks for posting picts. Unfortunately I was unable to make it. Looks like it would have been worth the trip. Maybe next year.

    Violet Grips

    I saw the below thinking these were the right grips for a '65 violet Collegiate. Seeing there was a number on the box, I thought maybe it would match the spec sheet...it does not. I'm thinking the spec sheet just calls out the generic grip design, not color related. So, were these the correct...

    1967 Stingray Deluxe Project

    I switch between a couple of methods. On this one, I soaked in citric acid for at least an hour and then rubbed with aluminum foil. I then soak the smaller parts in WD40. After that, if needed, I hit them with a cheap Harbor Freight wire brush in my dremel. Sometimes I'll forgo the citric acid...

    What bike did you ride today?

    Technically earlier this week. Vacation in South Haven Michigan. Took the vacation Suburbans out on the Kal-Haven trail. Saw this cool bike rack in town.

    1967 Stingray Deluxe Project

    I had to get out the broken fender bolt to soak the stem in BP Blaster. The stem bolt was stuck and I didn't want to wrench on it any more. Soaked it for three or four days. Used a couple of 2x4's between the forks and bars to break it free. Took about an hour to wrench it out. Not only...

    1967 Stingray Deluxe Project

    And a few major pieces of chrome. I think I'm going to throw the rim in for a little while longer.

    Schwinn girder fork?

    It's all about the claims at the end of the patent. It can look exactly like something else but what is claimed as the "invention" is what is important. If Triumph had a fork prior to the patent that reads on the claims of the Schwinn patent, then Triumph could have taken action against Schwinn.

    Huffy pro Thunder 4 auction find!

    Not a ton of value there but it looks to be in great shape. Most of these are beat to death or spray bombed. I would have bought that in a heart beat if the price was right. Nice find.

    Collegiate...maybe?

    So, a few more picts. Yes, the rims are S5's. Also, I'm thinking it might be a re-paint. The fact there are no Schwinn decals or fork darts and there appears to be brush marks especially on the forks. There are chips that look like they have been painted over as well.

    Collegiate...maybe?

    Racer was my second guess😉. And I just realized they moved the pully to the chain guard bracket...duh. I could't put that together for some reason. So basically, it's a Racer converted to a five speed. I haven't checked the rims to see if they are stamped S5. So did Racers come with S5's and...
